(PRWeb UK) October 18, 2010
Leading airline British Midland International (bmi) is delighted to be the official sponsor of England Rugby and is offering customers the chance to win tickets to an England Team training day in the lead up to the Autumn Internationals.
Showcasing its commitment to British sport, bmi’s partnership with the Rugby Football Union - which was established in February 2009 - includes support for all England’s international teams, as well as the exclusive naming rights of Twickenham Stadium’s South Stand debenture lounge, which was renamed the bmi Diamond Club last year, after the airline’s loyalty scheme – the UK’s most generous frequent flyer programme.
The Autumn Internationals kick-off on Saturday 6th November 2010 and bmi is therefore giving everyone the chance to win tickets to an official training session on Tuesday 26th October. Winners will get to go behind the scenes at the England training camp to watch the team train and meet the squad, before listening to a presentation by the England Manager and ex-England Captain, Martin Johnson.
For a chance to win customers simply need to log on to http://www.myflybmi.co.uk/rugby/ and follow the instructions. The three highest scores will each win two guest passes to the England training camp, while the two runner-ups will receive rugby memorabilia signed by the team. Full terms & conditions apply and the competition closes at 1700 Friday 22nd October. Customers can get frequent updates on the competition via twitter by following @flybmi.
