McDonald’s Qatar Launches Player Escort Programme for Young Footballers
Imagine the thrill of a young child from Qatar standing beside their football hero and hearing the roar of the crowd in front of millions of fans at the FIFA World Cup! Well now they have a chance to enter and win at their local McDonald’s.
Qatar’s favourite quick service restaurant is giving two budding young football fans the opportunity to win a once in a lifetime chance to experience the game first hand this year in Brazil through the Player Escort Program. The lucky winners will travel to Brazil with their parents as part of this exciting opportunity.
Football fans ages eight to ten-years old can simply sign up to the ‘Shoot & Score’ competition at McDonald’s Suhaim Bin Hamad branch for three consecutive Fridays on 21, 28 February and 4 March 2014. Their names will then be entered into a draw for their chance to win and lucky winners will be announced on 14 March 2014.
