TNM plc, sponsor of the country’s flagship TNM Super League, has launched the 2019 season Zampira Promotion by outlining fabulous prizes including watching a La Liga match.
The grand prize has been increased to K2 million whereas two lucky winners will also get a chance to watch a La Liga match involving teams such as giants Real Madrid.
TNM Head of Marketing, Sobhuza Ngwenya, said the promotion was part of the company’s drive to engage football fans as this year marks 12 years of its commitment to the top-flight league.
“The essence of Zampira Promotion is continuous engagement with the football fan-base across the country. The competition will be run in two phases where, in the first round, we will see two lucky winners flying to Madrid, Spain, to watch a La Liga match involving Real Madrid Football Club. In the second round, winners would continue to participate for the grand prize of K2 million to be given at the end of the promotion in December 2019,” he said.
TNM has also introduced supporters’ Player of the Month award through which supporters will have an opportunity to vote for their best player from a shortlist.
Super League of Malawi President, Tiya Somba Banda, said engaging the supporters was a critical component to professionalise the local league.
“Taking the game beyond the stadium is a step in raising the profile of the league and watching Real Madrid live is an experience that a soccer loving Malawian would not want to miss. I, therefore, urge the 12th player to seize this once-in-a life time opportunity,” he said.
To receive updates, one needs to dial *1515# and navigate the platform for a variety of features such as game predictions, news updates, live scores, daily questions and general soccer alerts.
To participate in the draw, subscribers are required to send an SMS of their prediction to code 1515. The SMS costs K50.
The promotion draws will be conducted on weekly and monthly intervals before the grand draw at the end of the season.
