World Cup

July 11 - 17, 2018

Shoot for glory at the mall while you can


City Centre Bahrain has a football-themed stand at its Central Galleria to challenge shoppers with a fun commentator-style competition.

Participants are asked to break the record of the longest ‘goal shout’ for a chance to win exciting instant prizes.

Leaders will then be invited to strike the ball and aim at their favourite retailers’ logo to win instant prizes.

To participate, shoppers need to spend BD30 at the mall to receive their game coupon.

In addition, visitors who spend BD50 will be eligible for exclusive football player mementos designed in the style of traditional Russian dolls with five otherwise identical figurines of descending size placed inside one another.

There are eight designs to choose from, each one representing a different country and these limited-edition items will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Every week four lucky mall goers have been given a chance to win BD5,000 too. To enter the draw before Saturday, shoppers need to spend BD30 for which they will automatically get an ‘activation coupon’ offering the chance to win more prizes. Those spending within the sports category stores will double their chances.
