at the event, Hieneken’s Global Sponsorship Director, Hans Eric Tuijt said the
trophy tour means a lot to Hieneken.
He
described Hieneken is premium brand with fans all over the world and added that
partnering with UEFA to bring the UCL trophy to Nigeria is special.
Unveiling
the UCL trophy also known as the big ears, Dutch legend Ruud Gullit said it was
a wonderful experience on the tour.
“Meeting
with passionate fans who always want to touch and take pictures with the trophy
is something I will always remember,” Gullit said.
Gullit
who was part of the Milan team that won back to back European Cup Championship
commended  Hieneken for bringing the
trophy to the fans and giving them an opportunity to be part of a magical
experience.
The
UCL trophy tour which has gone around the world will be visiting Argentina,
Nigeria and Vietnam this year.

is the biggest football competition in the world as the best players get to
participate unlike the World Cup where some star players miss out.

fans is a huge gesture,” Oliseh said.
