Saltmarine Hyundai customer turns test drive into tickets

By simply taking a test drive in a Hyundai i20, one lucky customer from Saltmarine Hyundai in Dungannon has won tickets to see Northern Ireland play at UEFA EURO 2016 in France.

The dream football-fan prize was part of Hyundai’s sponsorship of UEFA EURO 2016 and saw customers across the country enter a prize draw by taking a test drive in a Hyundai i20. The top prize included flights, hospitality and tickets to the Northern Ireland - Ukraine match in Lyon, France on 16 June.

Lucky winner Robert McConnell from Portadown, said, “I couldn’t believe it at first, I thought someone was playing a joke. Then we found out that flights, transport and accommodation were included. It’s like a dream I can’t thank Saltmarine and Hyundai enough and can’t wait to go.”

Michael Salt, Saltmarine Hyundai Dealer Principal said, “The Hyundai Euro 2016 Test Drive Event gave our customers a chance to not only experience the popular Hyundai i20 but to also win VIP tickets to watch Northern Ireland play in the Euros!

“We also gave away Adidas EURO 2016 footballs for customers test driving any new Hyundai, so everyone was able to take home a piece of football fun. Being able to give away free tickets to such a highly anticipated match for Northern Ireland is a great way to say thank you to our customers and help celebrate real fans of football.” ​
