Sing Tel and Samsung are teaming up to pit Manchester rivals Rio Ferdinand and Sergio Aguero against each other in a series of challenges in Singapore.

SingTel Game On! takes place on May 15-16 and gives fans who purchase the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE from April 11-May 8 a chance to dine with the two global superstars.

During their visit to Singapore, Ferdinand and Aguero will take part in the 'Ultimate Selfie' challenge, snapping pictures of themselves while participating in a selection of local activities, as proposed by natives on social media. These selfies will then be published on Twitter, with the player that receives the most retweets emerging victorious.

Supporters can also get involved by taking their own selfies while engaging in traditional Singaporean pastimes and tweeting them using the hashtag #SGGameOn. The Premier League footballers will then single out their favourite tweet and invite that individual to join their dinner festivities.

In the build-up to the event next week, Ferdinand threw down the gauntlet to his Argentine nemesis via Facebook today.

"This time next week it will be me vs Aguero on the streets of Singapore. S,G, game on!" 

SingTel Game On! is ultimately a bit of light-hearted promotion in the build-up to the World Cup next month, but you sense that Ferdinand and Aguero – with their highly competitive nature and the deep-rooted history between the clubs – will both want to prevail over the other.
