Blog: Olly WehringWorld Cup Tickets - We have a Winner!

Olly Wehring | 1 June 2006

Our competition, in association with Budweiser, for two FIFA World Cup tickets has been running all week, but closed last night. We were deluged with entries (I exaggerate not), including entries from as far afield as New Zealand and Brazil.

But there can be only one winner, and that lucky football fan is...

James Sanderson, finance analyst at Constellation Brands Europe.

James and a friend will be in Nuremberg for England’s second group game against Trinidad & Tobago on 15 June.

Have a great time, James.

The correct answer, by the way, to the question ‘What is England’s FIFA World ranking’ is ten.

Our thanks go to Anheuser-Busch for their generous offer of the tickets. Keep your eyes peeled, meanwhile, for another competition we’ll be running to coincide with the start of the tournament next week.
