New York, NY (PressExposure) April 16, 2014 -- Within the past month, three lucky winners have driven home in new rides thanks to SHOUT, the live fan engagement mobile application. Thousands of sports fans from all over the world have participated in SHOUT's "Ultimate Fan Challenge" competitions and only three SHOUTers have been crowned champions. On Sunday, April 13, Mark Wilson won D-Will's Champions Challenge and was personally given the keys to a new Fiat 500 by three-time NBA All-Star, Deron Williams following the Brooklyn vs. Orlando game at the Barclays Center.
D-Will's Champions Challenge was a season-long competition hosted by SHOUT where thousands of contestants answered a variety of trivia questions during each game with the hope of winning a car and a trip to New York City to meet the Nets starting point guard. Last week, the top four finalists were able to compete in the final round of the competition and watch the Nets take on the Magic in Deron Williams' personal suite at the Barclays Center.
"As the fan commissioner of SHOUT, I want to congratulate Mark Wilson, aka Mark22b, on winning the season long D-Will's Champions Challenge," said SHOUT CEO, Darl McBride. "Mark battled through an intense final round played out in Deron's suite inside Barclays Center to drive off in a pretty sweet Fiat 500 Sport."
D-Will's Champions Challenge was one of three marquee SHOUT competitions where users competed for a number of exciting prizes including new rides. On Saturday, March 22, 2014, Jonathan Tym won the Sheffield United F.C. "Ultimate Fan Challenge" and was awarded a new Ducati during the football club's 125th anniversary celebration when the Blades played the Wolverhampton Wanderers. The second Ducati was given to Thomas Burton after he knocked out his competition during the World Series of Fighting 9 title fight at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on March 29, 2014.
