Want to get up close with Pirlo and Buffon

Juventus F.C. headed by their star players such as Andrea Pirlo (front row, centre) and Gianluca Buffon (back row, second from right).

Fancy sharing a toast with Juventus' king of cool Andrea Pirlo?

Or snapping a selfie with one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Bianconeri shot-stopper Gianluigi Buffon?

Well, you could do just that if you win "The Best A Fan Can Get" football experience, presented by The New Paper and Gillette as part of the exhibition match between a Singapore Selection side and Italian champions Juventus at the new Singapore Sports Hub next Saturday.

All you have to do is snap a photo of yourself doing a wacky goal celebration with a Gillette razor.

Upload the photo on Facebook, Instagram or twitter with the hashtag "TNPxGilletteFootball" and you stand a chance to win the experience of a lifetime.

One lucky reader will win not only two Category One match tickets -which cost $180 each - to the match, but also two tickets to the Serie A giants' training and autograph session. The winner will also be invited to a VIP cocktail function with the Juventus players and staff before the game.

On top of that, he will also get to step out onto the hallowed turf of the National Stadium to present the Gillette Man of the Match award right after next Saturday's big match. The contest closes on Monday, and the winner will be selected by a judging panel consisting of TNP, Gillette and its associated agencies

Said local football fan Fadhli Kamal: "I'm not exactly a huge fan of Juventus, but I had been mulling over going to the match since it will be the first one played at the new National Stadium.

"Now that I know about this contest, I'll definitely try my best to come up with a creative celebration and win it. "Getting to meet stars of world football up close does not come by often, so this is an opportunity not to be missed."
