Winners of the various prizes are being contacted and will receive their prizes as soon as verifications are completed.
The ”Recharge and go to Old Trafford” promo is one of the benefits in the partnership between Globacom and Manchester United which was launched in February 2010 at a colourful ceremony in Lagos.
The promo requires subscribers to recharge with N500 or more to qualify for the draw. The more a subscriber recharges the more his or her chances of winning.
They are to recharge within a week to qualify for the lucky draw to win the all_expenses_paid trip to watch the next home match of Man United or any of the other prizes.
