Samsung Electronics has recently announced the winners for envied VIP package experience for the Orange Africa cup of Nations (AFCON) that is currently taking place in South Africa.

In a recent press release the Samsung representative had this to say concerning the organisations involvement.“As an official sponsor of the competition since 2008, Samsung has been engaging fans in and around the stadiums to further the excitement surrounding the tournament and this promotion is just another way we are bringing the passion and excitement of African football to our customers,” said Aiden Rousseau, Business Leader for HHP Southern Africa at Samsung. “This promotion aimed to bring the spirit of AFCON and the Samsung brand to the Southern African region and showcase our world class products! As not only do consumers get the benefit from purchasing a Samsung mobile device, but being entered into a draw for the VIP experience prize and possibly being part of the AFCON legacy 2013.”
The competition was quite extensive with consumers in Angola, Zambia, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Lesotho and Swaziland all eligible to enter. The deadline for the competition was the 20th December 2012. To compete, one simply purchased a Samsung Mobile phone at any retail outlet, and submitted his or her product serial numbers via the online competition site, SMS line or via the entry forms at authorised retail stores.
 “We had an overwhelming response to the competition – with over 30 000 entries across the various regions – and  we were able to draw our 26 lucky winners in random draws that took place across the various regions during the week. And what a prize they have won – the winners will be flown to South Africa to attend an AFCON game each.” added Rousseau
