Mashreq, the UAE’s second oldest financial institution, has announced the launch of a limited edition Fifa World Cup Mashreq Visa Card.

Customers who opt for the branded credit and debit cards will receive welcome gifts such as football jerseys, an EA Sports Fifa 14 game DVD and Fifa Visa memorabilia.

They will also have access to a new rewards program named ‘Salaam Goals’ on transactions made using the cards.

The points accumulated can be redeemed for 2014 Fifa world cup merchandise, travel packages to countries participating in the event or for retail purchases in the UAE.

Nimish Dwivedi, head of payments at Mashreq, commented: "The Fifa World Cup is an historic event and creates unparalleled excitement amongst football fans, the world over.

"Mashreq has taken the lead to introduce a new card, inspired by the 2014 Fifa world cup theme, for football fans in the UAE," he added.
