Some patrons of the Flow Super Cup competition will be getting much more than good football when they participate in Scotiabank activities for an opportunity to win $10,000.

For the past two weeks, participants who have successfully scored a goal have received their $10,000 winnings. Set up like an obstacle course, patrons are challenged to guide the ball through a number of 'life goals' before they can score and if they score, they win.

Already, six persons who participated at the Catherine Hall venue have been recipients of the $10,000 prize. The finals will be no different.

This is the second year of Scotiabank's participation in this event. "Football is a passion that Scotiabank shares with our employees and customers. We are very pleased to have this opportunity to engage with the patrons during the matches," said Hope McMillan-Canaan, public and corporate affairs manager, Scotiabank.

For the avid supporters of the finalists, Kingston College and St Elizabeth Technical High School, there will be school-coloured thunder sticks distributed at the match.

Scotiabank is also taking the opportunity to stimulate interest via the Visa debit and credit card promotion that will give two football fans the chance to win an all-expense paid trip for two to the FIFA World Cup in Russia 2018, complete with round trip-airline tickets and accommodations.

Customers become eligible when they use any Visa debit or credit card issued by Scotiabank or if they apply and are approved for a new Scotiabank Visa credit card. Cards that qualify are Visa debit card, Scotiabank /AAdvantage Visa, Scotiabank Visa Classic, Scotiabank Visa and Scotiabank Visa Gold credit cards.

For the players, Scotiabank will award the most valuable players from the top two teams with a $50,000 educational bursary, along with a financial literacy course for their teammates.

In 2014, Scotiabank become the official bank of CONCACAF which includes being title sponsor of the Gold Cup, the Champions League and the Caribbean Nations Cup.
