BEKO Officially shows its presence in PH Markets with: "Kick your way to Barcelona: The Beko Grand Kick Off Challenge"



BEKO, one of the largest home appliance brands in Europe, is finally in the Philippines. Entering the Philippine market in July of 2015 and exclusively available in select SM Appliance Center stores, BEKO provides an innovative and reliable range of kitchen and home appliances which make consumers daily lives easier.

“Kick Your Way to Barcelona” with BEKO & FC Barcelona

As part of this global premium partnership with FC Barcelona, one of the top football clubs in the world (lead by Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr., Gerard Piqué, Luis Suárez and Andrés Iniesta), and to strengthen the Beko Philippines Facebook fan page (@BekoPh); BEKO Philippines launched the “Kick Your Way to Barcelona: The BEKO Grand Kick-off Challenge” Promo.


With BEKO Philippines awarding one (1) lucky winner with a tax-free, all-expense paid trip to Barcelona, Spain to watch an FC Barcelona match live in April 2017 (inclusive of a roundtrip ticket to and from Barcelona, hotel accommodation with breakfast, in land transfer, Barcelona city tour, & a VIP La Liga match Box Ticket), the promo attracted a number of Facebook followers to submit and post their creative selfies welcoming Beko’s arrival in the country with #HelloBekoPH. Successful entries qualified for the Kick-Off Challenge that was held on January 14, 2017 at Sparta Philippines, a sports complex which houses the country’s only FIFA 1-star certified indoor soccer pitch. The qualifying round aimed to select ten (10) participants who will move on to the final round on February 10.


During the Kick-Off Challenge qualifying round, each participant was given three (3) attempts within one (1) minute to try and kick the soccer ball inside a customized mock-up washing machine goal from a designated distance of twenty (20) feet. Since only one (1) participant was successful in hitting the goal, a second round to determine the remaining final nine (9) participants was conducted with which each participant was allowed to kick the ball with unlimited chances within one (1) minute from a nearer distance of fifteen (15) feet.

Seraphimsnotes points of view:
I was able to witnessed the kick-off.
and its fun to watch people who played 
Soccer and fulfill their dream to win
A goal to visit Barcelona for free.
With their perseverance and hardship to practice and train to kick the ball inside the hole. May the deserving individual reach the top and win.
As I excitedly attend the next final round on February 10. See you there!!
