*UPDATE: I have another set of double tickets to give away. Will give it to someone on Twitter. See below for details on how to stand a chance.
Tomorrow is Heritage Day in South Africa…a day where we are encouraged to celebrate our culture and the diversity of our beliefs and traditions. One of those beliefs is without a doubt our love for the game of rugby. It is a tradition (in some areas a religion) and part of our culture so it’s fitting then that i shall celebrate by giving away 3 sets of double tickets to see our beloved Springboks smash Australia at Newlands this coming Saturday 28 September. Oh and one lucky fan is gonna walk away with a signed Springbok jersey and ball.
The spirit of the Springbok is one of those rare things that unites all South Africans and you just need to watch this video to feel the magic.
Listening to the national anthem and hearing the crowd roar never fails to give me goosebumps. Brings back so many memories. I’ll never forget the time i went to Newlands to watch the Springboks play New Zealand ( the Cavalier’s) in the 80’s. There have been plenty of other more significant moments since, but that was the game that me made me love the game. Can’t wait to feel the human spirit at Newlands again this Saturday.
And i want you to feel it as well.
Ok here’s the drill.
I’m gonna give away one set of double tickets on Twitter and then 2 sets of double tickets to two people who leave a comment beneath this post. So six tickets in total. You can enter via either method or both if you want to maximise your chances.
- For the Twitter entry you need to follow @lifeissavage (so i track the entries) and then send out the following tweet:
” Win double tickets to see the Boks vs Australia at Newlands on Sept 28 and feel the
#HumanSpirit with @Absa and @lifeissavage “
Easy as that. I’ll pick a random winner this Thursday at 4pm. *UPDATE: have been given another set of double tickets so will give TWO sets away to random people on Twitter who send out that tweet above.
- Now for the other two sets of double tickets you will need to leave a comment beneath this post and tell me your best Springbok memory or story. Much like that first game i went to see at newlands when i was a school kid, i wanna know your best memory and be sure to use #HumanSpirit in your story and if you mention @Absa you get bonus points:)
One set of double tickets will randomly go to someone who leaves a comment and the other set will go to the funniest, best, most awesome comment. I’ll pick the winners on Thursday as well. The competition is open to anyone, but obviously if you want to see the game you need to be in Cape Town on Saturday.
And now for winning that signed Springbok jersey and ball. Of the 3 people who win the double tickets to the game only one of them will win the unique signed jersey and ball. The 3 winners will go heads-up against each other and need to document their ultimate #HumanSpirit moment from the game at Newlands on Saturday. They can send me pictures on Twitter or email me pics video or whatever best captures that moment. I’ll pick a winner on Sunday.
Now get involved.
*Sidenote – i initially made an error with the date of the game. It’s this Saturday the 28 September 2013. Those who tweeted with the incorrect date will still be entered into the draw. Thanks to the sharp people who pointed that out.
UPDATE 2: competition is closed and winners have been notified. Wish i could have given you all tickets to watch the game. Thanks for taking part.
