Anheuser-Busch InBev has lined up what it claims to be its largest on-pack promotion for the Budweiser beer brand in the UK.

The brewer said late last week that the push, entitled 'Predict & Win', forms part of the brand's sponsorship deal with this year's FIFA World Cup tournament in South Africa.

The promotion will run across 10m packs in the UK – not including Northern Ireland – and will offer consumers credits to make match predictions during the tournament

After buying a promotional pack, consumers can enter the on-pack code online at to redeem their credits. From 15 April, consumers can enter a quiz to win extra credits and, from 14 May until 11 July, consumers can use their credits to make predictions and win prizes.

Each week of the tournament the top 100 predictors will win prizes and at the end of the tournament the top 100 overall predictors will win prizes including a top prize of GBP100,000 (US$152,070).

Other prizes include televisions, home audio systems and online music download vouchers.

Predict & Win will also be supported in the UK by a “multi-million pound” advertising campaign including TV, outdoor, press and digital, in the run up to and during the tournament.

The World Cup kicks off on 11 June, when host nation South Africa takes on Mexico, with the final set for 11 July.
