The give-away will feature on 4.5 million specially-marked 50cl bottles of Powerade Berry & Tropical Fruits, Cherry , Mango

From mid-August, consumers can text a

code found on the reverse

of the label or enter via theextraman.com. Tickets will be drawn weekly, with one pair of tickets to be won for 13 World Cup matches, including travel and accommodation. Everyone

who enters

will

win a free day pass for

Virgin Active gyms.

Marketing controller Sarah Mitchell said: "Previous on-pack promotions with Powerade and rugby or football ha ve led to major increases in purchase rates of the drink

and we are expecting a similar response to our Rugby World Cup promotion."

The campaign will run with the strapline
