Manchester rivals Rio Ferdinand and Sergio Agüero face-off in Singapore in May

SINGAPORE - Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand and Manchester City's Sergio Agüero will be in Singapore on May 15 and 16 to spar off the pitch.

The footballers will take part in the SingTel Game On! challenge organised by the telco and Samsung.

One of the challenges is for the footballers to take selfies with a GALAXY S5 LTE phone while engaging in typical Singaporean activities as suggested by local fans via social media. For example, they could take a selfie of themselves enjoying a hawker centre meal.

The footballers will then post their selfies on their own Twitter pages and encourage their fans to retweet them. The player with the most number of retweets will win the challenge.

Fans who want to meet the players can also take part in the challenge. Take a creative selfie while enjoying a popular Singaporean activity and share it via Twitter using the #SGGameOn hashtag from April 23 to May 4.

Ferdinand and Agüero will then choose their favourite selfie tweet and invite the lucky fan and a friend to join them at an exclusive dinner.

There will also be a street carnival event where the footballers will take part in a series of football-themed challenges. Customers who purchased the handset can also get player autographs at the carnival on May 16 on a first-come-first-served basis.

If you want to join the exclusive dinner with the footballers and didn't win the selfie challenge, there is another contest. Four SingTel customers who purchase the GALAXY S5 LTE from April 11 to May 8 will win a seat at the dinner.
