Other customers who purchased the handset can also get player autographs at a football carnival event on May 16, on a first-come-first-served basis.

Ferdinand and Aguero will be competing in an "Ultimate Selfie" challenge, taking photos of themselves while engaging in typical Singaporean activities as suggested by local fans via social media. They 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.
