KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 16 May 2014 – Samsung Malaysia Electronics is giving all new owners of the GALAXY S5 the chance to win a series of delightful prizes from 15 May to 15 June 2014, as part of its GALAXY 11 global marketing campaign. The prizes include flight tickets to Brazil, the recently launched 55-inch Samsung Curved UHD TV or limited edition GALAXY 11 footballs.
“We are thrilled to provide fans with new and exciting ways to participate in the GALAXY 11 campaign throughout the football season,” said Ng Long Shyang, Vice President, IT & Mobile Business Unit at Samsung Malaysia Electronics. “Through the GALAXY 11 platform, we hope to fuel Malaysians’ passion and enthusiasm for football, and our current promotion is our way to reward these fans, and spur them to delve deeper into the spirit of the upcoming football season.”
GALAXY 11 is Samsung’s multi-platform fantasy-layered global marketing campaign that tells the story of 13 top-class football players from around the world, who attempt to save the planet from alien domination in a ‘winner takes Earth’ match on a virtual football pitch this summer. The campaign has embarked on the next phase – ‘GALAXY 11 Team Training’, designed to stimulate fans’ imaginations, inspire engagement and utilise the newest Samsung GALAXY devices to unlock entertaining moments and experiences.
World Tour for GALAXY 11
Another way that fans can get immersed in the campaign is to visit the GALAXY 11 World Tour taking place at the Orange Atrium Concourse, Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall from 12 to 22 June. There will be an interactive studio that allows football enthusiasts to train and play like the GALAXY 11 team through entertaining programmes and experiences with the latest Samsung devices – GALAXY S5, Gear 2 and Gear Fit.
GALAXY 11-Themed Mobile Games
