Airtel to Fly Soccer Fans for Arsenal Games in London

first_imgAirtel Ghana has launched a new promotion, in which its customers, staff and distributors would stand a chance to win fully paid trips and match tickets to go see the Gunners of Arsenal FC play at the Emirates in London between November, 2012 and May, 2013.There are 45 standard and VIP tickets to be won over the period, and the first match under this promotion is between The Gunners and Tottenham Hotspurs, and it is on November 17, 2012.Some of the other games are Arsenal vs West Ham United on December 26, 2012; Arsenal vs Manchester City, January 12, 2013; Arsenal vs Stoke City on February 2, 2013; Arsenal vs Everton, March 9, 2013; Arsenal vs Manchester United on April 27, 2013; and Arsenal vs Wigam on May 12, 2013.But each category of Airtel’s stakeholders such as the average customers/general public, high value customers, enterprise clients, distributors and staff have a different criteria for determining their chance to win.Corporate Relations Manager at Airtel Ghana, Kwame Gyan explained that all of Airtel’s all average customers would have a enter a text and win game by texting ‘ARS’ to 1948 at the premium SMS rate of 50Gp, and continue to answer very simple football questions to earn points and increase their chances of winning.He said Distributors have been given sales targets to meet and that would determine which distributors get the chance to go. For high value customers, the criteria is purely loyalty, and Kwame Gyan said that category of customers would be judged based on their consistency in spending and longevity of stay on the Zain/Airtel network.Enterprise Clients would also be judged on spending and the staff members are going to be judged on how many mobile money customers they win for Airtel to help the company meet its target of being the best mobile money brand in Ghana.Head of Corporate Communications and External Affair at Airtel Ghana, Donald Gwira said for the staff, winners would be determined by “first past the post.”He said Airtel is not oblivious of the fact that Ghanaians are passionate about soccer and that is why the company is taking advantage of its relationship with Arsenal FC to excite its stakeholders and partners with this rare opportunity.“For those who win VIP tickets, they would get the life time opportunity to sit in the VIP area and also enter the dressing rooms and interact with the Arsenal players,” he said. Donald Gwira said ticket winners would be assisted with a letter of invitation from Arsenal FC for visa acquisition, but there is no guarantee that the UK High Commission would grant all winners visas.“In the event that a ticket winner does not get a visa the package would be passed on to the next highest points,” he said.He said the package is also available to Airtel customers in Nigeria, Zambia, Uganda and Rwanda.All the matches would be at the Emirates, home ground of the Gunners.last_img read more

Youth Day: lessons from 1976

first_img13 June 2011Young South Africans say they will be celebrating this year’s Youth Day by standing up and confronting the challenges they face – just like their compatriots did in 1976.Youth Day is a public holiday celebrated in South Africa every year on 16 June and pays tribute to the hundreds of students who lost their lives during the 1976 uprisings in Soweto.Taelo Mokoena from Houghton, Johannesburg, said there are great lessons to learn from the students of the 1976 uprisings. He said although today’s youngsters are not fighting for the same things, they are also facing challenges that they need to liberate themselves from, such as unemployment, poverty and crime.“We need to come out of a mindset where we as youth wait for the government to do things for us. We need to liberate ourselves from our circumstances and take up opportunities that are available to us and build a better future for ourselves.”Mokoena said the biggest lesson young people of today should learn from those in 1976 is the courage to fight for change. “We should always celebrate June 16 because the courage of the youth then proved to us that it is possible for young people to bring change in our country.”‘It didn’t come easy’“Unemployment and HIV/Aids are the two major struggles the youth today are faced with,” said Dikeledi Madau from Rustenburg, North West. “We must use the example set by the students of 1976 to inspire our youth to dedicate themselves to being empowered and fighting HIV/Aids, in the same way the youth of 1976 dedicated their lives to defeat apartheid.”Madau said young South Africans remain a central part of the country’s success. “For this country to grow and develop, the youth need to be empowered. The development of the youth is central to the transformation of this country and the enhancement of the lives of all South Africans.“We need to always keep the awareness; we can never allow that kind of oppression to exist again in our country,” said Thato Sibeko from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.“Our country has come far in achieving the growth our youth enjoy today – we need to protect that because it didn’t come easy. We need to keep the knowledge of our history conscious in our youth, to encourage them to be daring and face their challenges and succeed.”Sibeko said the day should be used to take stock of the progress the country and its youngsters have made. “We should use this time to celebrate the strides we have made since that day. We should also take this time to reboot and gear up to continue to empower young people.”“Our student heroes of 1976 were fighting to change the political situation of this country back then. I strive to change the socio-economic environmental of our country today,” said Thabiso Tladi from Pinetown in KwaZulu-Natal.“By educating myself and helping other young people also get an education I am fighting for change. I am fighting to see all young South Africans realise the benefits of the uprising.”Tladi offers career guidance to high school students in his community and helps them apply for bursaries and scholarships, and secure a place at tertiary institutions.“We all now have equal opportunities to study and pursue our dream careers and live a better life. The challenge now is to assist young people with information and resources to realise that dream, and reap the rewards that the youth of 1976 fought and died for.”First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.last_img read more

At the same time, the limited on the number of foreign players that could be selected for a game was reduced from four to three for each team.While Chinese soccer appears to be inching back from a foreign influx, the J-League, long considered the most professional competition in the region, is stepping forward.“We want to create interest in our league not only in Japan but in Asia and around the world,” J-League chairman Mitsuru Murai said. “With players like Chanathip we feel we are well on the way to achieving those goals.”Since 2017, the J-League has permitted each team to sign one player from an Asian Football Confederation nation outside of the existing foreign player quota.ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles01:35U.S. urges Japan, South Korea to share intel01:09Palace: Duterte to attend Asean Summit in Bangkok but with ‘spacing’02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Lacson backs proposal to elect president and vice president in tandem LATEST STORIES Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Trump campaign, GOP groups attack Google’s new ad policy Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “Japanese football is very fast and physical,” Chanathip said in a recent interview. “Players here are very disciplined, so if more Thai players come to Japan, they will be able to learn a lot and become better football players.”While playing in a more competitive league has helped Chanathip raise the level of his game, it has also helped promote the J-League overseas. Nearly 1.5 million people attend soccer matches every year in Thailand and Japanese soccer officials are eager to gain a foothold there.

Its just the freedom Paralyzed Broncos player pursuing life on the water

first_imgSASKATOON — A minor injury cost former Humboldt Broncos hockey player Jacob Wassermann an opportunity to compete at last month’s adaptive water-ski world championship in Norway.But he says that just getting to be part of the Canadian team has whetted his appetite for the sport and increased his determination to attend the next championship in Australia in a couple of years.Wassermann was invited to complete as a prospect in Skarnes, Norway, but is planning a different way in next time.“I’m going there as an athlete. I want to go as a full part of the team,” Wassermann told The Canadian Press in an interview from his home in Saskatoon.“That’s my goal. It’s a very achievable one in my opinion.”The former Broncos goaltender, who started in the net when he was nine, was paralyzed last year when the junior hockey team’s bus and a semi collided at an intersection in rural Saskatchewan. Sixteen people were killed.Now 19, Wassermann took up adaptive water-skiing a year ago at the urging of national team member Nolan Barnes, who was paralyzed in a car accident nine years ago.Wassermann will be back on the water this weekend as Saskatoon holds the provincial water-skiing championship.“For me, it’s just the freedom you get. You get out of your chair, get on the water and you’re going fast … not a lot of sports get that kind of speed and adrenaline,” he said.“The season’s almost over. We’re running out of summer here. I’ll ski until the year’s over and it gets too cold to get into the water and I’m starting school.”The sport involves a specially modified wakeboard attached to a ski with a cage that the skier is strapped into. Athletes are expected to compete in three categories: tricks, slalom and jumping.Wassermann said he was surprised at the camaraderie among the competitors in the international community.“When they’re on the water, you can tell they’re going to work. But when they’re off the water … they’re sort of hanging out, supporting their teams, supporting the other skiers,” he said.“It’s a different environment from what I’m used to in the hockey world, where if it’s not your team you’re against them.”Wassermann is to begin classes at the University of Saskatchewan this fall. He hopes to eventually have a career in nutrition.— By Bill Graveland in CalgaryFollow @BillGraveland on TwitterThe Canadian Presslast_img read more
