This summer just got more scintillating with the launch of the limited edition Sunfoil Test Series cards featuring all the Standard Bank Proteas players, available from Pick ‘n Pay stores countrywide from 5 January 2018. This exciting campaign, run by Willowton Group in conjunction with Cricket South Africa (CSA) and Pick ‘n Pay, will give fans an opportunity to identify their South African cricket heroes and exchange the colourful cards.
There are 24 must-have player cards up for grabs with images, career statistics and other useful information outlining the Protea players taking on India and Australia during the cricket tests hosted in South Africa between January and March. The first 20 people to collect all 24 cards will receive a one-of-a-kind prize hamper which includes Proteas cricket memorabilia, as well as a variety of Willowton products.
To get hold of these free player cards, all customers must do is purchase any one of the 30 participating Willowton products, among them 5l Sunfoil Pure Sunflower Oil and Sunshine D Lite 40% Fat Spread. The number of player cards issued per product may vary.
These collectable cards, individually wrapped in foil, can be swapped among friends with dedicated swap days hosted at various cricket stadia and Pick ‘n Pay outlets between 5 January and 4 April when the campaign ends. There will also be player card albums on sale to prominently display the 24 collectable cards.
Willowton Group, manufacturers of Sunfoil Pure Sunflower Cooking Oil, support South African cricket from development to national level, and have been sponsors of Proteas Test Series cricket since the 2011/2012 season.
“We are very excited about the launch of this interactive campaign which will shine a light on our cricket legends while also giving aspiring cricketers the chance to learn more about their heroes,” explained Shoaib Moosa, Chief Commercial Officer for Willowton Group. “We have always firmly believed in the unifying power of sport in our country and are proud to celebrate the South African cricketing talent while giving youngsters inspiration for a future career in sport.”
Clive Eksteen, CSA’s Head of Commercial, explained: “Fan cards are popular in many sports codes around the world and we are delighted to work together with the Willowton Group on this project.
“I’d like to encourage fans to go all out and ensure they have the full collection as this is a unique opportunity to own your own Proteas memorabilia.”
