Football

Probably the best prize 
in the world

Win a $22,000 trip: ● Watch UEFA EURO 2016 semi-final ● Play football with your mate at Stade de Lyon

Imagine walking out of the players' tunnel with fans chanting your name and the photographers jostling to snap your picture.

The giant screen at the 59,000-seater Stade de Lyon, venue of the UEFA EURO 2016 first semi-final, flashes your face and displays statistics to tell the crowd how good a footballer you are.

Confetti rains on you as you wear a personalised kit and step onto the hallowed turf, where illustrious company awaits.

You pinch yourself to see if you are dreaming. But then you aren't, and you find yourself among former European Championship winners such as Peter Schmeichel.

Sounds too good to be true? Your ultimate football dream may soon become a reality for you and a mate, thanks to Carlsberg. All you have to do is take part in the Carlsberg UEFA EURO 2016 contest (see far right) by picking the best of the four pre-determined All-Star sides of the tournament.

Pick what you think is the strongest line-up, then send it to us with your full name, contact details and explain in no more than 50 words why you are bringing that mate of yours to UEFA EURO 2016.

The Danish brewery calls it "probably the best prize in the world" and it's hard to disagree.

If the footballing gods are smiling on you, you will win a $22,000 trip to Lyon for you and your mate.

The package also includes two tickets to the UEFA EURO 2016 first semi-final on July 6 and a once-in-a-lifetime experience to wine and dine with football legends at the Carlsberg awards dinner.

And, incredibly, all those things about the confetti, giant screen and paparazzi awaiting the contest winners at the Stade de Lyon are real, as they will form part of the UEFA EURO 2016 experience.

As Carlsberg Singapore's General Manager, Jimmy Toh, puts it: "At Carlsberg, we strive to deliver the finest in everything we do, and when it comes to football, a sport that Carlsberg is passionate about, we are even more committed to delivering the best experiences to fans. We look forward to making a football fan's ultimate dream come true."
