Complete launches World Cup draw

Complete Mortgage and Loan Services has launched a World Cup draw to run from June 9 to July 9 2006.

Each case submitted by brokers in this period will be allocated a ticket in a prize draw, with a chance to win one of five flat screen TV sets.

Each of Complete’s 32 major lenders have been drawn out a hat to represent one of the national World Cup finalist teams.

Every case submitted during the period of the world cup will get one ticket in the draw.

At the end of stage one, every case submitted up to that point qualifies for the chance to win a flat screen TV, with only cases allocated to the 16 nations in the knock out stage going forward to the next round.

As the last eight, four and two nations emerge, further prize draws will take place, and cases allocated to the defeated nations will drop out of the draw.

Complete will be sending a daily email newsletter to all brokers on its database that will contain the latest product details, live World Cup updates and links to relevant football websites.

Tristan Pile, head of sales and marketing at Complete, says: The whole nation is gripped by World Cup fever and Complete wants to join fully in the spirit of the tournament.

Our prize draw is intended to add some World Cup suspense and excitement to the daily task of submitting cases, with the added bonus of the chance of winning flat screen TVs for five lucky brokers
