Shackara Watson’s purchase of a Hyundai Creta also got her a ticket for two to the World Cup in Russia, where she will watch Brazil tackle Serbia.

She was presented with her prize in the Hyundai Showroom along Old Hope Road in St Andrew on Monday.

Watson's trip was the main prize in Hyundai Jamaica's World Cup promotional campaign, ‘Hyundai Fortune Drive To Russia’, which gave individuals who purchased a vehicle a chance to win the ticket for two to the ‘greatest show on earth’.

She will stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in Moscow.

The draw took place on May 30, a day before Watson's birthday and she recalled the surreal moment of the announcement of her winning, having previously been unlucky with promotions.

"I am ecstatic, elated. I was very shocked when I got the call as I didn't believe it until I told the lady that I was coming down to the office to verify it,” Watson said, noting that she’s especially happy to be given the opportunity to watch her favourite team, Brazil, in the  World Cup.

Watson, an administrative coordinator at Norman Manley International Airport, will use the trip as a family outing, as she will take along her partner, Chauvin Allen, and their toddler, Aiden.

Allen, who says he also supports Brazil, was as joyful as his partner.

"I am still in disbelief. I am going to Russia to see my team play. I am an ecstatic football fan and I am grateful for the experience," Allen said.

Meanwhile, Hyundai Jamaica will be hosting a viewing of the match next week Wednesday at popular entertainment spot, 100 Hope Road. The company will also be giving away other prizes at the viewing while giving patrons the opportunity to test drive a Hyundai vehicle.
