Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 phones will be bundled with a free ESPN app for a limited period, offering exclusive access to goals and highlights of Premier League football matches.
ESPN Goals will be pre-loaded on all handsets in the X10 range (that’s the original X10, the X10 Mini and the messaging focused X10 Mini Pro) until November 26th. During the first three months, accessing video footage will be completely free.
As well as the chance to see action from the last three seasons of the Football League’s top flight, the app also includes news and live scores to keep you in the loop with what’s happening while you’re out and about.
To promote the tie-in, a competition is also in the offing with a top prize of a “footballer’s salary” of £100,000, plus weekly prizes of £1,000 for five weekly winners.
Richard Dorman, Senior Marketing Partnerships Manager, Sony Ericsson, said: “The ESPN partnership and talkSPORT ‘win a footballers salary’ prize build on previous marketing programmes and perfectly complement our existing football portfolio.
“Our approach is to provide our customers with instant mobile content, enhance their fan experience and bring them closer to the much loved game.“
He added: “The retail offer ensures that purchasers of our XPERIA range will reap the reward of free Premiership goal highlights with the additional bonus of the chance to win a footballers salary.”
To be in with a chance of winning one of the weekly prizes of £1,000, you’ll need to vote for your favourite goal from three selected by a panel of talkSport experts and hope that your selection matches theirs.
The winner of the £100,000 grand prize will be determined by a draw, with everyone who entered over the competition's four-week run in with a shout of snaring the cash.
