Feel FIFA World Cup 2014 Fever with Sony & Smart
29th May 2014, Phnom Penh – In conjunction with 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, Sony and Smart Axiata proudly introduce Sony’s latest innovative devices, the Sony Xperia Z2 and the Z2 tablet. Both devices are 4G LTE enabled, so best powered by Smart’s 4G LTE! Smart offers in addition free voice and data as service bundle.
The Xperia Z2 features the world’s best camera and camcorder with 4K recording built into a smartphone and is waterproof. The premium smartphone has the best display and comes with Digital Noise Cancelling technology. The Z2 Tablet is equally impressive as the world’s slimmest and lightest waterproof tablet.
To ensure every Cambodian feels the excitement of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and truly catches the football fever, Sony and Smart will jointly organize our own 2014 World Cup Table Soccer. In this competition, a team of two players will compete with another team according to the official rules by the International Table Soccer Federation (ITSF). This competition is exclusively for Smart subscribers only. To participate in the qualification round, Smart subscribers need to purchase and activate USD 2 Top Up on the spot during the event locations, but considering the recently launched SUPER 40 tariff – up to 40 minutes calls within network FREE every day, only Top Up required and Smart’s Xchange program, this Top Up is a small token only. There will be one winner team per day at each qualification round at various locations in Sihanoukville, Battambang, Siem Reap, Kampong Cham and finally at Phnom Penh. Total 16 winning teams from the qualification rounds will compete at the Final on 13th July 2014 in AEON Mall Central Court, the very same day with the Final Match of 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The Top Price for the winning team of the Final will be worth more than USD 2,000, including 2 Sony Xperia Z2 coupled with 2 Gold Numbers of Smart and 100 USD airtime each! The runners up will receive 2 Sony Xperia Z2 tablets coupled with 2 silver numbers of Smart and 50 USD airtime each, the 3rd place will receive 2 Sony Xperia M2 with 2 bronze numbers and 30 USD airtime each and the 4th place will receive 2 Sony Xperia E1 with 2 copper numbers of Smart and 20 USD airtime each. There will be also a Lucky Draw on the final day for all participating Smart subscribers with proud owners of new Sony devices and 400 prizes ranging from FIFA World Cup Footballs, T-Shirts and pouches, Smart Top Ups, Smart special numbers and Sony’s Fit Bands walking away.
Smart will also promote Sony’s Xperia Z2 smartphone and Z2 tablets during this period at all the event locations and all 27 Smart Shops nationwide. Any purchase of a Sony Z2 smartphone will be given an official 2014 FIFA World Cup football and comes bundled with FREE 1,000 min on net calls and FREE 1GB data per months for the next 6 months. All purchases of Sony Z2 tablets will be given an official Football Jersey and comes bundled with FREE 2GB data per months for the next 6 months.
