In 2013, Heineken® gave football fans in Nigeria, Argentina and Vietnam the chance to see and get up close to the prestigious trophy. Like Heineken®, the trophy is a true global icon. It represents the excellence of the UEFA Champions League worldwide and the ultimate achievement in European club football. In order to make the event memorable, various events and activities have been lined up by the brand to give consumers, trade partners as well as the media first hand contact with the trophy which is making its tour of Nigeria for the second time after it did so in 2009. In a statement, Marketing Director Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mr. Walter Drenth, said “the Champions league trophy tour is an activity unique to Heineken®. No other brand is capable of holding the trophy tour outside of Europe.” He promised football fans that the brand – in consonance with its tagline of “Opening Your World”- would provide an experience that only Heineken® can deliver its consumers. On August 31, 2013, Heineken® announced the extension of its sponsorship with the UEFA Champions League. The new agreement means that the brand will continue as an official partner of the world’s most prestigious club football competition up to and including the 2017 / 2018 season.
