Singapore, 9 July 2018 - AIA Singapore today announced an exclusive partnership with Nazri Nasir, football coach and former captain of the Singapore national football team, to inspire more Singaporeans to live healthier, longer and better lives. With the support of Nazri, one of Singapore’s most prolific footballers, AIA Singapore launched a social media contest to celebrate Singaporeans who lead healthy and active lifestyles.
As the global principal partner of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (Spurs), AIA has been engaging communities through football and healthy living. With active participation in sports, AIA also promotes values of teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship to positively impact people’s lives.
Nazri has been a Spurs supporter since childhood and his dream is to visit the home of Tottenham Hotspur in North London. Through Nazri’s personal story and his motivation to lead a healthy lifestyle for his children, AIA Singapore hopes to inspire Singaporeans to overcome adversity and take charge of their health and future.
The AIA Mission: Spurs - Celebrating Courage Over Adversity contest sets out to search for passionate Spurs fans in Singapore who overcame life’s challenges and have since adopted a healthy and active lifestyle.
The most inspirational Spurs fan will win an exclusive journey of a lifetime for two to visit the world-class new stadium in London, England alongside Nazri.
“As an ex-professional footballer, I retired early and unfortunately, was not prepared for the next chapter of my life. Having gone through setbacks, both physically and financially, I realised the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and planning for the future. I hope to encourage more Singaporeans and the next generation to be the best that they can be through this initiative,” said Mr Nazri Nasir.
“We are very excited to work with Nazri to advocate healthy living and fulfil the dreams of Spurs fans of visiting the home of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. As always, we want to challenge ourselves to go beyond the traditional insurance model as we continuously invest in Singaporeans’ health, enabling them to live healthier, longer, better lives,” said Ms Ho Lee Yen, Chief Customer & Marketing Officer of AIA Singapore.
Other initiatives by AIA Singapore includes AIA Vitality, a first-in-market behavioural science backed wellness programme; the recent partnership with Medix to provide AIA Max Essential A/ A Saver customers with Personal Medical Case Management, and sponsoring fitness events such as The Music Run and Fitness Fest to make active living fun for all ages.
Interested individuals may find out more about the contest at www.facebook.com/Singapore.AIA from 16 July 2018, to stand a chance to win an exclusive trip to meet Spurs players and watch a match live at Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium in London. Deadline for submissions is 5 August 2018.
