June 20, 2018 3:28 pm Published by

As World Cup fever grips the nation, we’re doing something special for you.

Football fanatic or not, this is your chance to be part of the #WirexWorldCup.

Simply share your favourite football moments, whether you’re supporting your team at home, with your mates at the pub, or you get an opportunity to capture a moment when you are out and about. In return for sharing your masterpiece, we will give you the opportunity to win £100 worth of Bitcoin and have your Cryptoback™ elevated to 1% (for a whole month, every time you use your Wirex card in-store) and who knows, your entry could go viral.

It’s easy!

  1. Follow @wirexapp on Instagram
  2. Upload your football themed photo, video (not longer than 60 seconds) or GIF to Instagram with the hashtag #WirexWorldCup
  3. You have until 11:59pm on Sunday 29 July to submit your entry.

Here’s where it gets interesting.

We will choose 3 winners and announce them on 30 July 2018 🏆

🥇The Winner will receive an increase in their Cryptoback™ rewards (from 0.5% to 1%) for a month PLUS £100 worth of Bitcoin into their Wirex Account.

🏅The Runner Up will receive an increase in their Cryptoback™ rewards (from 0.5% to 1%) for a month

🏅The Fan Favourite will receive increase in their Cryptoback™ rewards (from 0.5% to 1%) for a month

Important things to consider:

Be creative! It could be a photo, video or GIF. Will you showcase your favourite team or player? Will it be at your local pitch? Are YOU the crazy neighbourhood fan who’s wrapped his car to look like a football?!

The Runner Up & The Overall Winner will be chosen by a panel of football mad judges.

Spread the word! The winner of The Fan Favourite will be the entry with the most likes on their post. So share your post and rack up those double taps!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a Wirex card yet. Getting your hands on one is easy and free. Download the Wirex app (if you haven’t done so already) and follow the instructions.
