IBQ offers exclusive opportunity to win tickets for the 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals
Doha, April 3, 2010: Football fans in Qatar will be offered the fantastic opportunity to witness the unrivalled passion and excitement of the FIFA World Cup Finals in South Africa on a live and exclusive basis as IBQ extends its customer service to cover the greatest football event in the world. Continuing to follow the goal of being the Bank of Choice in Qatar, IBQ will offer its Visa credit cardholders the opportunity to win an all expenses paid trip for two to Johannesburg, including match tickets to two World Cup games.
The draw for the winner will take place on May 5, with the promotion running through the entire month of April. IBQ Visa credit cardholders will be automatically entered into the draw for every purchase over QAR 1,000 on an IBQ Visa Platinum and IBQ Visa Infinite card.
“We are very proud of this exclusive opportunity we are offering our credit cardholders to see the greatest football event on the African continent the first time ever,” said Philip King, Assistant General Manager of Retail Banking at IBQ.
“Considering the outstanding football passion across Qatar, we feel this offer is a valuable and touchingly personal opportunity to pay back our customers for the loyalty they have shown to our bank throughout the years. I think it will have a very high resonance with our existing customers as well as with new credit card holders who will be interested in this exclusive opportunity to win match tickets to the World Cup finals. In this process they will get an idea of the exiting rewards of banking with IBQ,” King added.
The agreement between IBQ and VISA to produce a dream opportunity for many football fans across the country will come to a temporary climax on May 7, when the winners of the draw will be announced. There is no limit to the number of entries as every QAR 1,000 and above purchase offers an automatic entry opportunity into the grand draw.
The exciting experience only begins there for the draw winners, who will be flown to South Africa for the World Cup finals, which take place from June 11 to July 11 2010. The 5 day trip includes 4 nights’ accommodation on double occupancy, as well as daily breakfast, 2 pre-paid Visa cards worth $150 each, pre-match hospitality, and of course the tickets to the matches themselves. An optional sightseeing tour or Safari is also included in the package.
“We will continue to look for new ways to enhance the IBQ customer experience and make your money reach further. In this case, we hope it reaches all the way to South Africa, for the football experience of a lifetime,” concluded King.
