I had 2 in mind, but ill go with the old reliable "Coke" or "Coca-Cola"[/QUOTE]

Good thing you didn't go with the other one! Indeed, guessing the sponsor correctly for the [B]Coca-Cola North American Cup[/B] nets you both a 100 point reputation boost, and a cash prize of £1M, which will go straight into the club's bank balance.

[quote name='kipfizh']Challenge #1

Given Manngeld's German roots, I'm going to go with Volkswagen.[/QUOTE]

And straight away, a second winner! The [B]Volkswagen European Super Cup[/B] is maybe not the most glamorous of competitions for arguably the biggest company in Manngeld's homeland, but it does fetch your German based club a glamorous prize of £1M.

[quote name='b101']Challenge #1 : Apple[/QUOTE]

A very good guess, but unfortunately not. Too busy convincing the world that the new iPad is slightly different, the American technology giants were not interested in any deal.

[quote name='mightymariner']Challenge #1 Mercedes[/QUOTE]

Unfortunately not. Mercedes were interested in a sponsorship deal, but Manngeld decided in the end that Volkswagen would be a better choice.

[quote name='robbo3d']Challenge #1

Korea Ferrous Metals Export & Import Corporation[/QUOTE]

A cracking guess, but not a successful one I'm afraid. Bit of a mouthful for sponsorship purposes.

This is unfortunately true; I can however block any new stadium builds in FMRTE I believe.

All incorrect guesses I'm afraid. I'm toying with the idea that, in an hour or so, I'll allow all those who have failed to guess a sponsor correctly to have another crack at it. I'll also tell you now, that only four countries have more than one sponsor from their shores, and three of those speak English.

Woo hoo! With all our money spent on infrastructure, this is the only £1m the club has, so a very nice little bonus...

[B]Budweiser[/B] seems like a likely sponsor.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='glennuk']Mangeld - but if that isn't a company, then Allianz![/QUOTE]

I'm afraid none of these are correct. (Glenn, Manngeld Enterprises is indeed a company and a sponsor but of course had already been unveiled before the challenge began. They're hosting it! ;))

[quote name='PRDH']Challenge #1 - Samsung[/QUOTE]

Our third winner! Correctly identifying the [B]Samsung Asian Super Cup[/B] earns a cool £1M for your club.

[quote name='18Rabbit']Challenge #1 Virgin Group, Richard Branson loves crazy schemes.[/QUOTE]

We have the first jackpot of the day! Branson loved it indeed, and is paying a considerable sum to sponsor the [B]Virgin Cup Winners' Cup[/B]. This correct guess means that Il Viola Diavoli will gain the advantage of a young superstar. Details on this player will be shared once the sign up proper begins.

Hang on, second guesses hadn't started yet! :p

[quote name='resde34']Can those who have guessed guess again?[/QUOTE]

Those who failed at their first guess can indeed go again.

A hint; failed guesses have included confectioners, banks and vehicle manufactures. There are sponsors remaining unidentified from each of these categories.

Good thinking, but unfortunately they aren't. There aren't individual sponsors per country by the way, but rather 3/4 per continent as well as 2 for the worldwide competititions.

Just a quick question, would it be possible for you to put a list of the competitions, and then when we guess them right you fill in the sponsor, so people have a better idea of what to guess? Its just a suggestion.

I'm afraid these three have all been guessed before! (Samsung correctly). I'm not that mean so I'll let you three have another go :p

[quote name='b101']Right, next guess: Petrobas[/QUOTE]

The fifth correct answer, congratulations. The Brazilian energy giants are paying for the right to sponsor the [B]Petrobras South American Premier Division[/B]. A 100 point rep boost and £1M coming your way.

Have you thought about touting it around the small club challenge threads? Tend to be plenty of active users to lure in...

I thought about it, but didn't think it'd be right to hijack others' threads for advertising. I'll be posting in the Sign Ups HQ at some point soon.

Well, well, well. Didn't think that one would be going any time soon! A fantastic guess, correctly identifying the [B]MTN African Cup[/B] nets you a well earned 100+ rep and £1M.
