​Win a trip to watch Arsenal

Discovery launches #IWasThere – an exciting new competition, in partnership with Arsenal Football Club, with the incredible prize of 20 unparalleled VIP football experiences as part of the 2019/20 Premier League season. Each experience includes two tickets to an Arsenal match, luxury accommodation, return flights and £1,000 spending money.

Broadcast in 188 countries with a viewership of just under four billion people, the Premier League is one of the most popular sports tournaments in the world. As the official broadcast sponsor of the Premier League in South Africa, Discovery will be bringing the world’s most-watched sports league to viewers’ homes through DSTV.

Iona Maclean, Head of Experiential Marketing and Sponsorships at Discover says, “With Discovery’s role as the Official Wellness Partner of Arsenal, we want to give people the chance to witness the next big Arsenal moment in person. We’re excited to be able to give people the chance to say: ‘I was there’!”

“We want to elevate our country’s passion for sport and inspire people to understand the importance of healthy lifestyle choices and physical activity. Sport has a power to unite us all, and it especially helps encourage young people to make healthier choices every day,” adds Maclean.

Entering into the competition is simple – existing clients and non-clients of Discovery need to SMS Discovery and their ID number to 44360 to be entered into the draw, and additional entries can be earned by getting a Discovery product quote in 60 seconds.

“We are delighted to be able to support Discovery’s #IWasThere campaign,” comments Arsenal Commercial Director, Peter Silverstone. “Community focus has been deep rooted in the Arsenal values since we were formed in 1886. We take our responsibility to positively impact the lives of many – both in London and around the world – very seriously. We run a number of healthy living initiatives in the local community and hope that the world class action on display at Emirates Stadium continues to inspire our South African fanbase to get active and make healthier life choices. Our shared focus on encouraging people to make healthier choices, makes Discovery an excellent partner.”
