Singapore, 16 August 2014 – Epson, a world leader in digital imaging and printing solutions, brings football fever back to fans in Singapore, with a series of community and social media activities for Singapore’s most anticipated football event this year – the Singapore Selection vs Juventus Football Club match on 16 August 2014.
As Platinum Sponsor for the match, Epson rolled out a series of off-line and online activities to engage their partners and soccer fans. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, 20 children from Lakeside Children’s Home, one of Epson’s supported beneficiaries, had the opportunity to be a part of an exclusive football clinic with the Juventus players and coaches from SportCares Foundation to pick up football tips.
As a leading technology player, treats were in store for tech-savvy football fans, as Epson launched an extensive series of Facebook contests between June and August, with overwhelming response. Prizes include exclusive passes to watch the open training session, passes to get autographs with the Juventus players, match day tickets, and an exclusive meet & greet session with the Juventus Football Club players.
Exciting Activities Even Before The Match Day
Juventus Football Club Asia Pacific Tour 2014 Singapore Junior Football Clinic was held on Friday, 15 August, at the National Stadium. Partnering with SportCares Foundation, the football clinic saw 20 kids aged between 12 – 14 years old from Lakeside Children’s Home, Epson’s beneficiary, training under the guidance of SportCares Foundation’s coaches and Juventus Football Club players over five football stations.
