CROUCH DOWNLOAD ENGAGE with Rob Kearney and Guinness

GUINNESS®, Proud Partner of Irish rugby, and Irish International rugby player, Rob Kearney, have teamed up to announce three extraordinary experiences for rugby fans on the new Guinness Plus mobile App, to celebrate the upcoming Guinness Series. The experiences are linked to each of the upcoming Internationals against Samoa, Australia and World Champions, New Zealand. Rugby fans who download the Guinness Plus App and use the check-ins throughout the Guinness Series will be in with the chance to win ‘Money Can’t Buy’ experiences for them and their friends.

Irish International rugby player, Rob Kearney commented, “The Guinness Series is a fantastic tournament, with some of the toughest teams in the world playing us at our home ground! It’s exciting and demanding, with three matches in quick succession. We’re looking forward to having our fans there to support us and with these three incredible experiences on the Guinness Plus App, rugby supporters are going to have the chance to get up close to the action at the All Black game, meet one of Ireland’s rugby legends, and if we beat Samoa, there’s a surprise reward for every App user!”

The first International will see Ireland play Samoa, Guinness is urging people to get behind the team, and if Ireland wins, everyone who checked in to a participating pub using the Guinness Plus App will receive a surprise reward to celebrate. Rugby fans should check in to the pub before the final whistle on match day, 9th November, to enter.

In the run up to the Wallabies match, Guinness Plus will be giving rugby fans the chance to win an incredible experience at the International against World Champions, New Zealand. A lucky Guinness Plus App user will have the chance to present man of the match, as well as tickets for themselves and three friends to watch the All Blacks in action. Rugby fans will need to download Guinness Plus and check in to a participating pub before 11.59pm on the day of the Australia International, 16th November to enter.

For the final Guinness Series match against World Champions, New Zealand, users who check in to a participating pub before 11.59pm on match day, 24th November, will have the chance to rub shoulders with an Irish rugby legend! The winner will have a pint and a chat about all things rugby with one of Ireland’s leading ex-Internationals, in their local with three of their friends.

In addition, to the incredible experiences, Guinness Plus will also have tickets to be won to all three of the Guinness Series Internationals throughout the tournament.

Christopher Wooff, Senior Brand Manager, GUINNESS® said; “Guinness is a proud sponsor of Irish rugby and the Guinness Series. The 2013 Series promises to be one of the most exciting yet with Samoa’s exciting flair rugby, our first match against the Wallabies since our win in 2011, and a final match against the World Champions, New Zealand. The Guinness Plus App is a new way for us to reward pub goers around the country and the Guinness Series experiences we are announcing today will enhance rugby fans’ pubs visits during the tournament and bring them closer to the action.”
