Sony Xperia save more than goals

At the recent Sony Soccer Clinic, more than goals were saved.

The one-day event held exclusively for Sony Xperia fans at Suntec Convention Hall on 1 June 2014 guest-starred Peter Schmeichel, the “World’s Best Goalkeeper” who is best remembered for his years as goalkeeper with Manchester United, and for winning the UEFA Euro 1992 with Denmark. About 200 Xperia Z2 owners and their guests attended.

Amidst what must be a frenzy hosting the Danish retired goalkeeper and Xperia fans, Sony Mobile Singapore still made time to score in support of education of underprivileged kids.

One of the activities they organised was a Charity Penalty Challenge where for every goal saved, Sony Mobile Singapore pledged to make a donation of SGD10 to Project Happy Feet.

Even the Danish football superstar couldn’t stay away from some sporting fun.

The goalkeepers (who were staff members of Sony Mobile Singapore) worked hard and saved a total of 83 balls by end of day. To further their goodwill, Sony Mobile Singapore rounded up the score and made a cheque of SGD1,000 to Project Happy Feet.

Sony Mobile Singapore made good its promise - and went beyond

Thanks to the ingenuity of the Sony Mobile Singapore team, the star power of Peter Schmeichel, and the support from Xperia fans and Sony staff alike, not only goals were saved, but also the dreams of underprivileged children whose education are at risk of being disrupted because of financial hardship.

And that’s why we call this “the beautiful game”.

Project Happy Feet would like to thank the team at Sony Mobile Singapore for selecting Project Happy Feet as the recipient of this goodwill gesture.
