NFL fan Latrell Charleson was granted the wish of a lifetime after using his Visa card, issued by M&T Bank, during a promotional period this past fall. He was automatically entered for a chance to win a trip for two to Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas next weekend. While at home with three Buffalo State hockey teammates, he got the winning call: “It was unbelievable,” he told Visa. “I was in shock and didn't believe what just happened. The woman on the phone had to tell me again!”
One lucky swipe had won Charleson, who calls Port Laberni in British Columbia home, a three-night trip for two, including transportation, tickets to the Super Bowl LI and NFL Experience, travel accommodations and a $250 Visa gift card. Visa will host several winners of various Super Bowl LI promotions and their guests in Houston next weekend.
Charleson’s father, a die-hard NFL football fan, will be his plus-one at the game. “I've always wanted to do something really special for my dad and now winning this has given me the opportunity to bring him to the Super Bowl,” he said.
