Two lucky South African football fans won a trip of a lifetime to the United Kingdom courtesy of EA Sports - the official sports technology partner of the Barclays Premier League.
Petri Swart and Kyle Timms won the all-expenses paid trips in a competition sponsored by EA Sports on www.supersport.com, a South African online sports portal.
The winners travelled to London and Manchester to watch Premier league giants Arsenal taken on Newcastle and current league champions Manchester United taken on West Bromwich Albion.
Neither Petri nor Kyle had experienced a live EPL match before, and both were thrilled by the experience.
“I thought I had won the PS3 which is why I entered the competition in the first place. What a surprise it was to discover I won the main prize," explains Petri.
He thought he’d been the subject of a telephone hoax when he received the call. Meanwhile Kyle believed that he’d won one of the other prize hampers.
In addition to the two EA Sports Ultimate Premier League Weekend Experiences, 10 prize hampers comprising a PS3 Console, a copy of FIFA 12 and a signed Barclays Premier League jersey were also given away in the competition.
