Coca-Cola takes Maldivian football fans to experience World Cup
Winners of Coca-Cola’s consumer promotion celebrating Maldivians’ love of football have begun their journey to be part of the biggest sporting event in the world.
Eight winners along with their partners departed Male on Sunday to Qatar where they will have the opportunity to watch a FIFA World Cup match live. The all-expenses paid trip will not only allow the winners to enjoy one of the most exciting phases of FIFA World Cup Qatar as winning teams from the group stage engage in a do-or-die round of matches to advance to the quarter finals, but also to explore and experience the rich culture of Qatar and the wider Gulf region.
During the Uncap. Believe. Fly. Promotion, which ran from September 1 to October 31, eight fans received an all-expenses paid couples trip to watch a FIFA World Cup game live in Qatar for themselves and a plus one, while eight winners won Al-Rihla FIFA Official Match Balls. Gaming consoles together with FIFA ’22 game bundles were also given to eight winners. Daily winners received Coca-Cola cases for their ‘At Home Stadiums’.
With the tournament now in full swing, Coca-Cola continues to give Maldivian football fans the experience of the FIFA World Cup through match screenings and exciting consumer activations. An exclusive Coca-Cola Fan Zone website is also live, enabling fans in the Maldives and around the world to show their love for their favourite team through score predictions and exciting promises to keep.
