DeKALB – A football superfan is headed to Miami for Super Bowl LIV thanks to his love for Subway.
Ruben Vicencio, of DeKalb, won a sweepstakes through a Subway in Rochelle which will send him and his wife, Sylvia, to the Super Bowl, according to a news release.
The Vicencios were sent off in style during a send-off party Monday at the Subway at 1085 N. Seventh St., Rochelle.
Subway Franchise owner Jim Sigwards and Business Development Agent Brandon Willhelm hosted the party.
The sweepstakes was sponsored by Visa as part of SubwayMyWay Rewards, where members received one entry into the football sweepstakes for each Visa purchase made at Subway during the month of November 2019, the release states.
When asked about his reaction upon winning, Vicencio said he could hardly believe it.
“I received an email notifying me that I won,” Vicencio said in the news release. “At first, I thought it wasn’t real. I told my wife and she didn’t believe me, but it turns out it was very real, and we are very excited.”
