-

Following successful live viewings of UEFA Champions League matches by fans in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt, internatio­nal premium lager beer, Heineken last Saturday, welcomed football fans into the Ocean View Ground, of Eko Hotel and Suites, in Lagos, for the historic final match between Real Madrid and Liverpool. This grand finale of the premium football viewing events was indeed a special one with the presence of Argentine football legend, Hernan Crespo, who joined hundreds of Nigerian fans to witness a truly memorable night of drama and action.

Crespo had spent time soaking in the city of Lagos by visiting leading art, culture, lifestyle, and educationa­l centre, Terra Kulture, to view stunning artworks on display.

He had also paid surprise visits to four lucky football fans in their offices in various parts of Lagos, delivering to the delighted fans exclusive front row invites to the UCL Final live match viewing experience put together by Heineken.

The 2017/2018 UCL final was all set to be a momentous occasion, with the Zinedine Zidane led Real Madrid team vying for an unpreceden­ted 13th overall and third consecutiv­e title win, while the Jorgen Klopp coached Liverpool side was hoping to win a sixth title on the night in Kiev, in their first final since 2007.

The trio of sports broadcaste­r, Moses Praiz, Hernan Crespo and exSuper Eagles coach, Samson Siasia, provided expert analysis and made prediction­s during half time.

While guests enjoyed playing various fun activities like table soccer, video games and so on, additional entertainm­ent was provided by DJ Neptune, with hype man, Shody, further galvanizin­g the excited crowd during the post-match after-party to create a carnival-like atmosphere.
