Real vs Chelsea: Heineken host soccer fans to UCL live viewing experience in Owerri
There was real excitement in the air at the Chilis Bar in Owerri when Real Madrid sealed their place in the semi-final stage of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
The Heartland State was agog with the Heineken ‘Cheers to All Fans’ Campaign’ as the Premium beer brand was on hand to make the Champions League night a memorable one for the scores of fans and loyal consumers that made it to the exquisite Chilis Bar, Owerri.
With Real Madrid coming into the second-leg tie with a two-goal advantage, the odds were readily stalked against Chelsea.
However, Smart fans from all walks of life who thronged the Chilis Bar, enjoyed an unforgettable viewing experience with the Premium beer brand from the stable of Nigerian Breweries PLC and were soaked in the fun even after the 90 minutes of action was over at Stamford Bridge where the reigning champions eased their way to the last four courtesy of Rodrygo’s brace in the 58th and 80th minutes.
Top entertainer, DJ Bliss and hype man, Mr Barango, treated the fans to the best of trending Nigerian and international hit songs all night as fans that were on the edge of their seats while the game lasted soon switched into the party mood.
DJ Bliss, the crowd controller, kept the fans of both teams and consumers of Heineken’s mouth agape throughout with different tunes he made available before, at halftime and after the explosive tie.
Though Real Madrid fans went home happier with their resounding victory, Chelsea fans were consoled with the improved performance by Frank Lampard’s men but generally, everyone was a winner with plenty of Heineken merchandise freely given out to the fans and loyal consumers.
One of the winners, Ikenna Chilaka, a Chelsea fan who got the prediction of the halftime and full-time results got a classic power bank, bag, T-shirt, and face cap among others thumbed up by Heineken.
“It was a time filled with mixed feeling emotions for me but Heineken wiped that feeling of sadness with the gifts I won. I so much had fun and the fact that fans, friends, and families were able to come together to watch and support their clubs while sharing bottles of Heineken and still having fun while answering questions, winning branded gifts, and the DJ’s wonderful renditions gave us something to relish,” he said.
