Great news for Dubai football fans. From January 15 to February 15, Visa cardholders using a Visa or a Visa Electron card to pay for purchases will automatically enter a prize draw to win a trip to the 2010 FIFA World Cup to see their sporting heroes in action.
In addition, four lucky winners will have Dhs20,000 loaded on to their Visa card. And as if that wasn’t enough, from January 15-17, the FIFA World Cup Trophy will be on display at the Dubai Mall.
Cardholders who show evidence of using their Visa cards in Dubai Mall during these three days will be able to get a glimpse of the gold plated replica Trophy, which will be retained by the winning team on July 11th 2010 after the 18-carat gold original is returned to the home of FIFA in Zurich, Switzerland.
Depicting two human figures holding up the earth, the current trophy was designed by Silvio Gazzaniga and was first presented to West Germany captain Franz Beckenbauer in 1974.
