Two draws took place, one in partnership with C&W and Sony Erickson, the other powered by Budweiser and Cayman Distributors.

Each draw saw the chance to win two tickets to the World Cup. The tickets, each pair valued at $20,000, included prized seats at the 2006 World Cup, Germany, return flights, accommodation and pre-match hospitality.

Other prizes included Sony Ericsson handsets, Netspeak and Broadband packages, gift certificates, Budweiser prizes and official team jerseys.

Honduras native Oscar Rosalez scooped up the first set of prized tickets. Although he was not present when his name was drawn, C&W representative, Ken Guiste, was able to contact him and Mr. Rosalez speedily made his way down to the Mango Tree.

Unaware he had been automatically entered into the draw, a translator was required to explain to a rather bewildered Mr. Rosalez that he was the winner of the grand prize.

The Budweiser/Cayman Distributors draw followed with a Mr. Phillips picking up the second set of tickets. James Mansfield, Cayman Distributors marketing manager, commented that at the time of going to press they were still trying to track Mr. Phillips down and that a re-draw would have to take place if he had not been traced by Friday morning.

Participants were able to enter the draws by topping up their Bfree pre-paid C&W phone, activating a pre-paid NetSpeak or ADSL service, purchasing a Budweiser Lite or Michelov Ultra or by answering correctly World Cup trivia questions at Bar Hops, which C&W has been hosting at various venues during the last three weeks.
