BARCLAYS Tanzania sent its customers to watch the thrilling 2013 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) final match between Nigeria and Burkina Faso held in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Barclays Tanzania Head of Corporate Affairs, Tunu Towo Kavishe said the bank decided to send some of its customers to watch 'live' the final match and the trip that was fully financed by the bank.
"We decided to take some of our customers to South Africa to watch the final AFCON match as a gesture of appreciation to their contribution on the development of our bank," said Tunu in a statement released on Sunday.
She added that the bank knows the importance of its customers and the society in general to participate in sports and entertainment in order to strengthen their mental and physical health, something which is very important for their daily activities, and the bank believes that the customers that have witnessed the final have enjoyed it.
This is not the first time for Barclays Tanzania to send some of its customers to watch international matches abroad, because the bank through its Barclays Premier League (BPL) promotion sends some Tanzanians to watch the English Premier League matches.
Through that promotion, one customer with his or her partner wins a go-and-return air ticket to England to watch one of the premier league matches. In addition to that accommodation and transportation is also fully paid for by the bank.
