Standard Chartered launch SC Cup and a chance to watch Liverpool play
In a bid to give back big time to their customers, Standard Chartered have organised a five-a-side tournament with a once-in-a-lifetime prize awaiting the winners: an all expense-paid trip to Anfield to watch title-chasing Liverpool play in The English Premier League.
Set for 11 November at the Royal Aria Stadium in Tlokweng, the SC Cup will feature 24 teams made up of the bank’s clients.
Although it is yet to be confirmed which fixture the winners will take in during their three-night stay in Liverpool, the match will take place during the festive December period – so, whoever wins will want to pack plenty of warm clothing as the notorious Northern English winter will be in full force by then!
Launching the cup on Tuesday, Head of Consumer, Private and Business Banking, Moses Rutahigwa noted Liverpool’s world famous anthem, ‘You’ll never walk alone’ resonates with everything the bank stands for.
“Our value system as a Bank is closely aligned to that of Liverpool’s. We both believe in building a future that prioritises sustainability and uplifting underserved and underrepresented groups. We are committed to using our international reach to positively impact and empower local communities,” said Rutahigwa, whose organisation have been the Merseyside club’s main sponsor since 2010 and recently extended their partnership with the Reds until 2027.
“We invite our clients to seize this opportunity to take their shot to experience the glory of the Anfield stadium,” added Rutahigwa.
While the tournament is open to all Standard Chartered clients, those who are not currently clients but would like to enter the draw can open an account on the SC Mobile App with P100 or more, using the referral code 000071264.
Registration is open until 1st November.
