Since the South American country of Brazil was announced as winning the bid to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup, a massive build-up towards the event could be felt across the world.

This news has set a whole bunch of planning and literally, the ball rolling as the country prepared for a stadium and thousands of football fanatics around the world started saving towards their “take me to Brazil” fund to witness the men in studded boots in action.

Well, if you aren’t as organised or, like me, are a fan of football, but not the type to fly to another country to watch it, you might be in luck.

While driving to work, I was intrigued hearing a radio advert about Visa’s latest promotion to win double tickets to see all the studded action, the nail biting thrills and of course all the hunky football players for the ladies at the final match at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

This got me thinking, maybe I should enter, especially considering that this way my year of being competition crazy.

Although terms and conditions apply, all it takes to enter and to perhaps board a flight for you and a friend, partner or football fanatic is to swipe your Visa Cheque Card every time you spend.

Enter simply by swiping your Visa card, so the more you swipe, the better your chances at securing your seats for two at Brazil’s event of the year. The competition is valid from 14 February 2014 – 13 April 2014.

Once you’ve made your purchases, visit the Visa website’s promotion page and fill out your entry to seal the deal.
