Vote for World Cup Fan of the Tournament

Friday, July 9, 2010

Pretoria - Every FIFA World Cup attracts some of the most creative and impassioned soccer fans and this year the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa has been no different.

South Africa has introduced a whole new breed of multi-coloured fans into the world; dressed head to toe in makarapas, oversized glasses and giant wigs, and armed with vuvuzelas in every colour.

Now, with the World Cup drawing to a close this weekend, soccer fans are urged to vote for the most creative and zaniest fan seen strutting their stuff at one of the stadiums.

This through Hyundai's Fan of the Tournament competition. At every world cup match up until the week of the finals, Hyundai selected the Fan of the Match and uploaded the photographs onto the fifa.com website. The public were also encouraged to submit their own photographs. Voting is now open to the public and the photograph that receives the most votes will win a brand new Hyundai i10.

"This is a great way to really engage with the fans and show them that their spirit plays a significant part of every football match. We are very excited to see who is globally voted the Fan of the Tournament and to award them their brand new Hyundai." Hyundai South Africa CEO Alan Ross said.
