KINGSTON, Jamaica:

As if having all their favourite football action on one exciting app was not enough, telecommunications firm FLOW will be giving Jamaican fans an opportunity to see a UK Premiere League match of their choice.

Any subscriber who downloads the FLOW Football App is eligible to win a complete prize package, which includes two tickets to a Premier League match of choice, return airline tickets to the UK, three-night hotel accommodation, as well as US$500 spending money. The competition runs from now through to February 29, 2016.

In announcing the competition, John Reid, president of C&W's consumer group, who has been leading the brand transformation across the Caribbean, had this to say, "I can't think of a more opportune time to be a FLOW consumer as we continuously roll out innovative products and services all focused on providing a unique and unparalleled experience for our customers."

Over the past year, the company has unveiled an exciting and unrivaled suite of customer-centric products catering to sports enthusiasts, the binge-watching TV viewers, 'app-loving techies', and even special education apps. As such, customers now have access to an array of applications, including the FLOW Football App; FLOW To Go, where customers can access content to smart devices and phones; the Wikipedia app, which gives access to the popular search engine free of cost, and the Start Screen App to help mobile users make the most of their hand-held devices.

Reid explained that the latest move is designed to reward loyal customers, while recognising that in a digital age, customers are increasingly accessing content on multiple devices.

He added, "In 2015, when we were awarded the exclusive audio distribution rights for the Barclays Premier League across the Caribbean, we were able to give our customers access to the latest sports news, transfer activity and live streaming of every BPL match. Based on the number of downloads to date, it is obvious that customers love this service and we want to recognise that passion with an unforgettable experience for the lucky winner."

For this latest move, customers have to simply download the FLOW Football App, click on the advertising banner promoting the competition, enter name and contact details as requested, and then confirmation will be provided.

Announcement of the winners will take place on March 1, 2016. The prize must be claimed before April 1, 2016. The prizes are non-transferable and cannot be redeemed for cash. Winners must have valid travel documents, i.e., passport, visa (where applicable) for entry to the UK.

The competition is open to Flow mobile customers only.
