To join this contest, simply share your local football story. It could be your first brush with a football (even if it wasn’t in a football game) or your first experience watching the game on TV. You can also share about how you first fell in love with the game, or how you and your pals have put together a competitive team, or even how you and your loved ones spend quality time together because of it.
Most importantly, it is YOUR account of what football means to you, right where you live. Here are 2 easy steps to enter:
1. Pen a blog post, photo story, video, slide show (anything!) about your local football story.
2. Email your blog’s link to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15, 2010. It will appear on http://www.sonyericsson.com/ExtraTime. The site will be launched by the end of February.
If your post is shortlisted by Sony Ericsson judges and then voted (by readers) as the best football story in the Asia-Pacific Region, Sony Ericsson will send you to football’s biggest event--the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa!
The winner will get a new Sony Ericsson handset to document and blog about his/her experience on the road to South Africa in words, images and video. Share the stories of people across the globe as you watch the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa--live.
