KSL FC on their way to Brazil after winning futsal contest
LIVING up to Kia’s tagline “The Power to Surprise”, Naza Kia Malaysia has created extraordinary opportunities for locals at the World Cup in Brazil through Kia Motor’s global partnership as the official partner of 2014 FIFA World Cup.
KSL FC which won the Champs to Rio futsal tournament organised by Naza Kia Malaysia, will get to represent Malaysia at the Kia Champ Into The Arena tournament in Salvador, Brazil from July 4-7.
Champs to Rio is an initiative by Naza Kia Malaysia for Malaysians to experience and be a part of the excitement and energy of World Cup 2014, one of the biggest sports events of the year.
In addition to the all-expenses paid trip to Brazil, the team will get RM10,000 in cash, a champion cup, champion medals, exclusive jerseys and tickets to the Quarter Finals of World Cup 2014.
The players also received exclusive jerseys which they will wear in the global futsal matches in Brazil.
“Futsal and football are games that unite Malaysians and share a common thread of passion, skill and determination,” said Naza Kia Malaysia Chief Operating Officer Datuk Syed Hafiz Syed Abu Bakar.
“With Champs to Rio, you get the best of both worlds where the game of futsal acts as a foretaste to the prize of being part of FIFA World Cup in Brazil,” he said.
NAZA Kia Malaysia has continued to excite the public, under the “World Cup Rocks with Kia” campaign by giving 10 lucky winners the opportunity to watch the FIFA World Cup via an all-expense paid trip to Brazil.
Under the Test Drive Kia on Tour roadshow, the last two tickets were won by Lee Fee Mei from Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
She was chosen through a lucky draw by Naza Kia Malaysia Chief Operating Officer Datuk Syed Hafiz Syed Abu Bakar, at the final World Cup edition Test Drive Kia on Tour roadshow, held at Suria KLCC from May 16 to 21.
The Test Drive Kia on Tour roadshow kicked off in March this year to celebrate the advent of the greatest sporting event of the year, and to highlight Kia’s global partnership with the FIFA World Cup.
The first roadshow was held at Queensbay Mall in Penang (Mar 6-9), followed by The Curve in Damansara (Mar 16-19), KSL City in Johor Baru (April 4-6) before finally ending it at Suria KLCC in Kuala Lumpur (May 16-21).
“Through our global partnership with FIFA World Cup, we are able to extend extraordinary opportunities and experiences to our fellow Malaysians.
“This is part of Kia’s legacy to continuously surprise and excite customers and the communities around it, not just through the cars but through the promise of the brand,” he said.
