If you heard Spanish football star and FC Barcelona ex-captain, Puyol is coming to Nigeria for the first time, then you heard right!
This year, one of football’s greatest stars, Puyol, will be leading the iconic UEFA Champions League Tour as presented by Heineken® in Nigeria between the 16th-18th of April, 2019.
The announcement of Puyol as the Legend leading the UEFA Champions League Tour as presented by Heineken® comes as a huge surprise to fans who have taken to social media to express their unbridled joy. Puyol is undoubtedly one of the most loved football superstars to have ever graced the beautiful game. With an illustrious career that saw him earn Legendary status at Barcelona, he also picked up the UEFA Champions League title three times.
Heineken®, which is arguably the world’s most international beer brand, is one of the biggest brand supporters of the UEFA Champions League. Its a 25-year relationship with UEFA has seen Heineken® become one of the most recognizable brands in the world of sports, particularly in European football.
Back in 2018, Heineken® brought Argentine football Legend, Hernan Crespo to the heart of Lagos, to experience to UEFA Champions League with Nigeria’s passionate football lovers. Football Legend Ruud Gullit has also made the trip to Nigeria, courtesy of Heineken®.
However, Heineken®’s latest endeavours are set to top these already impressive achievements as the brand is not only bringing a football superstar but also the UEFA Champions League Tour.
The tour will be a three-day experience that will feature exclusive encounters in Lagos and Uyo and an unmissable match to be played by select consumers and the Spanish superstar, Puyol.
With a commitment to giving fans truly premium experiences and the brand’s keen interest in continually exciting its consumers, it’s easy to see why Heineken® is one of the most likeable brands in the world.
For fans, however, the countdown begins. The countdown to the day when all of Nigeria will stand still and welcome one of the football’s most iconic personality.
