Botswana
Vivo Energy Botswana, the company that distributes and markets Shell fuels and lubricants in Botswana, has found yet another way to thank its customers for their continuous loyalty.  Partnering with Barclays Premier League Champions, Manchester City FC, Vivo Energy has launched a ‘Fly to the Home of Manchester City FC’ promotion across its network of service stations in Botswana.

The ‘Fly to Manchester City FC’ promotion will run for two months, until 31 May 2015. 

Customers who spend P200 or more on high quality fuel, lubricants or convenience store purchases at any Shell service station stand a chance to win a grand prize of one of five all expenses paid trips for two, to watch Manchester City FC play live at the Etihad stadium in Manchester, England.  Two of the lucky winners will receive a VIP experience that not only includes coveted tickets to a Premier League game but also the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with members of Manchester City’s First Team squad.

Other prizes, including the iPhone 6 and official signed Manchester City FC shirts will be given to other winners in the build up to the grand prize draw.

Previous successful promotions, such as ‘Win a holiday or P100 000’ and ‘Fill up and win’ are testimony to how Vivo Energy Botswana regularly gives back to its customers.

Commenting on the promotion, Wayne Kingwill Managing Director, Vivo Energy Botswana said: “We are delighted to be offering the ‘Fly to the Home of Manchester City FC’ promotion to our customers.  Batswana have a passion for football, and this promotion will give the winners an opportunity to not only discover the Home of Manchester City FC, but also enjoy the game, and for some go behind the scenes at the club.”
