Lisburn man Mark Tennyson is about to enjoy a unique sporting treble thanks to Magners Original Irish Cider.

Mark, who was the lucky winner of the Magners Ultimate Sports Weekend, will be living the sporting dream as he heads off in November to enjoy three mega sporting events in three European cities – and all the action is packed into a single amazing long weekend.

Mark will kick start his VIP weekend at the Cheltenham Races, before heading to Edinburgh to watch Scotland vs Australia in the Rugby Union. The weekend will wrap up in Paris at the France vs Sweden World Cup Qualifier, all along with £500 thrown in to the kitty.

The Magners promotion was backed by comedian Colin Geddis, who added to the craic by recording a series of sports-themed videos for the Magners NI facebook page. There were prizes galore for fans of Magners and sport, but Mark clinched the ultimate prize with a simple scratchcard.

Magners Brand Manager, Julia Galbraith, said: “We thought this great sports-fest trip would be a fitting prize to round off what has been a truly phenomenal year of sport.

“Magners was delighted to offer this incredible opportunity and we packed as much as we could into four great days.

“Mark had better pack in some early training to prepare himself for this dash around three fabulous sporting set pieces. We’re over the moon that such an avid sports fan has won this ultimate sports weekend from Magners.”
