Five pairs of football holidays available to win
Footie fans who have an eye for the sizzling skills of Camp Nou stars such as Messi, Neymar and Suarez, will get a chance, at GITEX Shopper, to win a trip to see them and their FC Barcelona teammates in action.
United Arab Bank is sponsoring the giveaway, to be run at the region's largest consumer tech show, which will be held this year between 27 September and 4 October at Dubai World Trade Centre's Convention Centre.
Five lucky winners will be selected from those who buy a AED30 entry ticket to the eight-day show. Each will receive two return economy-class air-tickets from Dubai to Barcelona, two nights of accommodation in a four-star hotel, and two tickets to watch FC Barcelona play at their home ground. Each evening at 9pm, over the last five days of the show, from 30 September to 4 October, a draw will take place and a winner will be announced.
"We are delighted to be partnering with United Arab Bank to offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to GITEX Shopper visitors," said Trixie LohMirmand, senior vice president, Dubai World Trade Centre, event organiser. "Lovers of football, whether on the field or on a gaming station, will jump at the chance to travel to Spain to watch FC Barcelona in action."
