NEW YORK, Aug. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* welcomed New York Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo today to its newly-opened, high-tech wireless store in Washington Heights to meet fans and sign AT&T autograph cards. As part of the promotion, the first five guests who signed a two-year wireless service agreement or added an additional line to their wireless account received tickets to the upcoming sold-out New York Red Bulls-Los Angeles Galaxy game. Autographed merchandise was raffled off during Agudelo's appearance and one lucky fan will be eligible to win a trip to Los Angeles to attend a Cup Match scheduled for November 20, 2011, via a text-to-enter, text-to-win sweepstakes that will be active until October 20, 2011.
