Heineken UEFA Champions League finale winners emerge

Thirteen lucky Nigerian Heineken fans are now set to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience as this year’s UEFA Champions League draws to a close.The lucky Heineken fans who were amongst the over 3000 UEFA football fans that took part in the raffle draws across Nigeria have won an all-expense paid trip to Heineken’s world-famous Ibiza Finale, where fans converge from all over the world to watch the UEFA Champions League final match.

They will also enjoy lavish beach parties on the exotic island of Ibiza, a lush tourist destination off the coast of Spain. Other winners of the raffle draw took home various premium quality consolation prizes.

For Daniel Ogar, an Abuja-based Arsenal fan, the dream trip will soothe the pain of seeing his team knocked out of the tournament.  He enthused, “I have never been part of any raffle draw event but, this evening, I linked up with my friends at this bar and as fate would have it, I am a winner! Stanley Mgbemere had similarly arrived the aptly named Abuja Dream Recreation Centre with hopes of watching Arsenal defy the odds but he left with much more than he could ever have imagined. “Although the match did not go the way of my darling team Arsenal, I am compensated with the fact that I will enjoy an all-expense paid trip to Europe, courtesy of Heineken.”

IzunnaNwobodo andEgbuche Pope also won at the same Abuja bar. In Enugu, OgbonnaIfeanyi’s life changing date with destiny was at Bush House Arena. “I have always enjoyed my Heineken beer, but had never previously been interested in any form of lottery or raffle draw. Even this evening, I was passive about the whole exercise, but a friend encouraged me to enter the draw.” The other winners from Enugu were Aramide Kehinde, OnyekachiColins and LowisNkemjika Ezema. They will be joined from Port Harcourt by OgieOmanoye, Raymond Iyala and Nkemka Eze, who all won their trips at Lesuka Bar.

Chinedu Chine won from Ibiza Bar in Festac Town, Lagos. Scarcely believing his luck, he pleaded, “Please if it’s dream, don’t wake me up”.

But for the other Lagos-based winner, it was not purely a matter of luck. Informed choice and dogged determination also played a part. Bello Sharafa had read about the draws in the newspapers. “Although I always like to enjoy my match night in the bar, when I learnt that Heineken was coming to this particular place, I decided to come here.”

“As an FC Barcelona fan, my reward is double portion because the result of the match went my way and at same time I won a ticket to travel to Europe!”

Aside the unique opportunity to enjoy the UEFA Champions League final match in Ibiza, Nigerian consumers have also been part of Heineken’s ’90 prizes in 90 minutes’ promotion.
