Moini, a third year student of Information Technology at Kyambogo University in Kampala proved that he knew his football and has thus bagged the UGX 5,000,000 that had been staked.
Since the launch of the game, thousands have taken part in the game show that gave them the chance to prove their soccer prowess by managing their own teams and scoring points to win fantastic prizes every week.
One thing for sure though is thatmany of them didn’t lose their hair as shown by the resilience portrayed by Dennis Moini who emerged Manager of the Season.
“They (colleagues) would always help me out, advising on the players to look out for. At the beginning of the season, I used players like Wane Rooney (Manchester United) and Liverpool’s Mignolet. I later on dropped them opting for more consistent performers like Luis Suarez and the Manchester City’s players,” Moini said while receiving his cash at the Uganda Breweries Limited.
“Of course I have to do something for my colleagues; they helped me out a lot during the English Premier League season. At the moment, I have not yet decided what to do with the money. I will do that when I get home.”
Phoebe Nakabazzi, the Brand Manager Guinness at UBL said that the participation in the campaign met their expectations with thousands taking part in the game show.
“Every week, we computed the top 105 players and rewarded five players every month. So in the ten months, 51 players were rewarded. We are now planning for something bigger next season,” she said.
