Microsoft 2011 Rugby World Cup Competition

Microsoft New Zealand, an Official Sponsor of the 2011 Rugby World Cup, is today launching a competition that will allow one lucky winner and 14 of their mates to win the Microsoft Corporate Box for the Final.

The prize includes the Corporate Box for the Final at Eden Park on Sunday 23 October for 15 people, overnight accommodation in Auckland and transport to Auckland from one location.

To enter, visit and register as the captain of your team, then nominate 14 of your closest mates.

Valued at more than NZ$2 million, Microsoft's sponsorship includes some of the company's latest software and technology. The company is providing a range of desktop and server software licenses, including Silverlight Player, Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2010, Windows Server, SQL Server, SharePoint Server and SharePoint Online. This technology will support the successful operation of RWC 2011. The sponsorship also enables cost effective global content distribution, using Silverlight technology to help provide a great online viewing experience to those unable to make it to the matches.
