The Un-carrier steps up as first-ever Presenting Sponsor of MLB All-Star Game and celebrates All-Star Week with epic prizes for fans as well as player appearances and maybe even free snacks at the ballpark
Cincinnati, Ohio — July 10, 2015 — As the first ever Presenting Sponsor of the MLB All-Star Game, T-Mobile is stepping things up with an epic fan giveaway. To celebrate the Un-carrier’s latest industry-rattling move – ‘Mobile without Borders,’ giving Simple Choice™ customers mobile calling, texting and 4G LTE coverage in three countries (the US, Mexico & Canada) with just one rate plan, T-Mobile will give $5 million in travel to Mexico or Canada to 10,000 eligible fans if there’s a 3-for-1 homer (three-run home run) during the All-Star Game.
Fans can enter for a chance to win by simply tweeting their prediction for which player will hit a 3-for-1 home run during the All-Star Game with the hashtags #3for1HomeRun and #sweepstakes. And, when a player hits a 3-for-1 homer, 10,000 fans who’ve tweeted predictions will be selected at random to win a $500 travel voucher towards travel to Mexico or Canada. That’s a lot of margaritas and/or poutine!
“Yesterday we broke down borders for US wireless customers and gave them the freedom to use their phones in Mexico and Canada – just like in the US. The Un-carrier is the 1st , and only place consumers can get 3 countries under 1 plan at no extra cost.” Said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Now we’re making 3-for-1 count in a big way during the MLB All-Star Game. Any 3 for 1 homerun hit will give 10K fans free travel to Mexico or Canada. It’s all part of Un-carrier Amped!
Fans can participate by tweeting through the end of the All-Star Game presented by T-Mobile which airs on FOX on July 14th. Learn more at http://3for1HomeRun.com/rules
