The latest Manchester derby may not have gone in City’s favour, but there was one Blues fan who came out on top!
Teeraphong Sae-Fung from Thailand was the winner of a special penalty shoot-out with Blues stopper Joe Hart.
The campaign “Win Penalty Shoot – out with Joe Hart,” sponsored by Big Cola, ” had been running since August this year and was aimed at consumers in Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Big Cola challenged consumers in all three countries to ‘Think Big’ and come to Manchester to try to score a penalty kick against Joe Hart.
After a massive and very positive response, eight winners were chosen through a mix of lucky draws and skill tests.
The eight winners arrived at Carrington on Thursday and stepped up to take their spot kicks against Joe.
Following a sudden death shoot out, Mike Summerbee presented the overall winner Teeraphong with his trophy at half-time during the derby.
Big Cola were represented by Mr. Sorin Voinea, Head of Marketing Asia-Pacific, AJE Group.
The Joe Hart video commercial, used to announce the competition, went viral and it was picked up and viewed on the Internet by people from several countries throughout Europe and Asia.
