JOSUA Namoce was rewarded for his loyalty with The Fiji Times after he was announced the major winner in the newspaper's World Cup Trivia promotion.

Namoce won a 32 inch Sony Bravia TV and Blu-ray home theatre system in the first of the four competitions that the newspaper is running in a buildup to the FIFA World Cup in Brazil next month.

"I was actually surprised to read my name in the paper. I kind of suspected it because I have been buying The Fiji Times daily," Namoce, who works as a researcher, said.

"I don't know how many entries I sent.

"This is my second TV and I have put this one in my room so I can comfortably watch English Premier League, World Cup and other sports on TV."

The Fiji Times marketing manager Fotokalafi Ledua said readers were invited to answer the daily trivia questions printed in the newspaper and all correct answers went into the weekly and major draw.

"This promotion is the first of four that we're running as we build up to the FIFA World Cup and we received an overwhelming amount of entries from around the country," Ledua said.

"Our readers can enter via text on 1869 with Digicel or through the coupons that are published daily. "We're offering fantastic prizes every month and encourage everyone to enter as many times as they can to be in to win."

Prouds, Shop n Save, Digicel and JR White are the sponsors of the World Cup Trivia promotion.

Winners — Josua Namoce of Laucala Beach — 32" Sony Bravia TV and blu-ray home theatre system, Pushpa Jayaraman — Sony Xperia Miro Smartphone, Jonathan Lee & Peter Lagi — soccer kit worth $200, G.D. Sharma — $125 Digicel credit, Parveen R.N. — $100 Shop n Save Gift voucher
