Pepper launches comp for broker footy fans

by Miklos Bolza17 Jul 2017
Non-bank lender Pepper Money is offering members brokers the chance to play with some of the country’s AFL giants.

The newly released competition will allow the winner to earn a playing position in the Saints Legends Game on 20 August where they will play alongside legends such as Burke, Loewe, Milne and Fisher. The event is part of the curtain raiser in the upcoming Saints versus Kangaroos game.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and no doubt for many, it’s a chance to realise their childhood ambitions,” said Aaron Milburn, Pepper Money’s director of sales & distribution.

The experience includes two 20-minute halves on Etihad Stadium, a personalised playing kit, an official Saints Legends Game Footy Record, an invitation to attend the post-match Saints Premier Lounge game day function, and a Saints Legends Game DVD pack – all of which is worth $3,000.

Pepper was fortunate enough to have access to this opportunity through its partnership with St Kilda football club, Milburn told Australian Broker.

“They kindly offered us two playing positions in the game and we thought, what better way to reward our broker network than to offer them this unique opportunity.”

The lender ran a similar competition last year and the feedback was phenomenal, he said.

“The opportunity to experience what it’s like on game day for a professional footballer and being able to play at Etihad Stadium is something our winners won’t soon forget.”

There was more in common between business and sport than most people realise, Milburn added.

“These AFL legends represent team spirit, competition and desire to perform at their absolute peak. The legends embody Pepper’s core brand values – can do, balanced and real. We truly aim to help our customers succeed, and for our team, that’s what winning looks like.”

Entry is open to all accredited brokers available to travel from 19 to 21 August. Entrants need only visit the Pepper website and explain why they should become an AFL legend in 25 words or less.
