(SOUTH AFRICA), 22 December 2011. Kia Motors is actively involved in many sports across the globe, one of which is tennis.
Notably in this regard, Kia is the main sponsor of the Australian Open, and is also proud to have Rafael Nadal as one of the company’s global brand ambassadors.
“We feel very honored to have Rafael Nadal as our global brand ambassador, as his fighter spirit on court and humble nature off court, is a great match with the Kia brand”, comments David Sieff, National Marketing Manager, Kia Motors South Africa.
As part of its close affiliation to the Australian Open, Kia runs an annual competition, called the Kia Lucky Drive to Australia promotion. This exciting competition ran from 1 October 2011 to 14 November 2011 and provided all potential customers who test drove any Kia within these dates with an amazing opportunity to win a trip to Melbourne, Australia in January 2012. The complete package includes a viewing of 1 men’s and ladies semi final during the 2012 Australian Open as well as an exciting city tour of Melbourne.
This year, the lucky winner is Cherece Donnelly, who test drove and purchased a new Cerato at Kia Alberton. Congratulations to Cherece!
