Watch the World Cup in South Africa

The FIFA World Cup is the greatest
show on earth and tickets have been in huge demand for years.

An estimated global audience of 30
billion people will be watching on television during the tournament, which
kicks off on 11 June in Soccer City, Johannesburg,
South Africa.

As the tournament progresses, the
excitement builds to extraordinary levels. By the time the quarter-finals come
around, there will have been triumph and disaster, suspense and joy, on-pitch
surprises and colourful fans winning the hearts of a truly global audience.

And you could be a part of it,
there in person to not one but two quarter-final games. Caymanian Compass is
teaming up with Budweiser and Digicel in an exciting promotion to win an
expenses-paid trip to the FIFA World Cup quarter finals, held between 1 and 4
July, 2010.

Unprecedented

Included in the grand prize are return
airfares for two people from Grand Cayman to Johannesburg; accommodation at the
AB InBev base camp hotel Balalaika in Sandton Johannesburg and all transfers.

This unprecedented prize also
includes security; welcome dinner for two people; travel insurance; pre and
post match hospitality; tours; room gifts and a fully branded travel pack.

A pair of tickets to both of the
FIFA World Cup quarter finals is the jewel in the crown of the prize.

Marketing Supervisor of Cayman Free

promotion.

“The World Cup is the greatest
sporting event in the world and to be part of a promotion with Budweiser and
Digicel to win a trip to South
Africa is just fantastic!” said Ms Mason.

In order to be included in the
grand prize draw, entrants must purchase a case of Budweiser, Bud Light or Bud
