Perez Kasoro and Dean Ocama were overjoyed last Friday as they each received Ush1.5m as well as a DSTV Walka 7 courtesy of Guinness for taking part in the Guinness Fantasy Manager game.Kasoro and Ocama topped the monthly leaderboards for the month of December 2013 and January 2014.
My game plan involved selecting Star players like Liverpool’s Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez as well as Manchester City’s Argentine wizard Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero, said Kasoro.
Having amassed over 750 points, Kasoro has now vowed to up his ante and win the Manager of the season award that comes with a cash prize of Ugx 5m.
Ocama on the other hand kept it simple during the month of January 2014 looking out for consistent performers like Southampton’s Adam Lalana, Manchester City’s Ivorian midfielder Yaya Toure as well other goal scoring midfielders. The Capacity Building Officer at the World Wide Fund for Nature currently has 854 points and has his eyes set on the Manager of the season award too.
He added, “This money will help me save up on my salary as well as help me pay rent upfront for months ahead.”
Phoebe Nakabazzi, the Guinness Brand Manager says that the brand plans to make the game show more exciting in the coming seasons with bigger offers.
“We want to create more hype around this game and we hope to make it bigger in the coming years to the extent that we want some of the winners to be flown out to watch some English Premier League Matches.”
Managers of the week for the months of December 2013 and January 2014 were awarded with the DSTV walka 3.5 each.
GUINNESS FOOTBALL MANAGER was launched in August by Italian footballer and Champion League winning manager, Roberto Di Matteo, when he visited Uganda. Each week, Di Matteo selects his very own ‘Player Made of More’ – the player he believes has made the most significant contribution in that week’s matches and any managers with that player in their fantasy team, will be awarded extra points.
