Super Eagles’ major backer, the Star Lager will this Friday in Asaba celebrate with the team and the passionate fans as Super Eagles set to shine into the biggest ever Africa Cup of Nations in history.
This Friday is the last match day for Nigeria ahead of the 24-team format of the Africa Cup of Nations. The Super Eagles are facing Seychelles in what is a mere stroll in the park as the Nigerian team has already qualified.
The match is therefore a celebration of the qualifying ticket, being the first match of the team this year and thus part of the build-up to a more challenging competition ahead.
According to a media release, Star lager beer, the official backer of the team has already rolled out action plans.
The first indigenous beer to be brewed in Nigeria, Star Lager, will from this Friday in Asaba Delta State celebrate with passionate fans as Super Eagles of Nigeria look set to shine in the last African Cup of Nation (AFCON) qualifying match against Seychelles at the Stephen Keshi International Stadium.
The encounter, which is a dead-rubber as the team had already secured a qualification ticket to play at the continental premier football tournament in Egypt in June, will see Star Lager beer, the official beer of the Super Eagles thrill passionate football fans in and around Asaba, at the famous Fan Park located outside the stadium during the match.
Aside the AFCON qualifying match, Star Lager will also thrill fans at the same ground on Tuesday when the former African Champions and host of the next tournament, Pharaohs of Egypt engage the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a high profile International friendly match.
“As an official partner of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Nigerian Breweries Plc is solidly behind the Super Eagles to continue to conquer higher grounds and we as a corporate organisation will continue to build a fan base for the team as Nigeria stages a comeback to the Africa Cup of Nations tournament,” the Marketing Director, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mr. Emmanuel Oriakhi stated yesterday ahead of the matches.
The relationship between Nigerian Breweries Plc and the NFF, has continued to soar with Super Eagles now one of the favorites to win the tournament in Egypt this summer while Super Falcons still maintains her dominance on the continent in women soccer and are expected to make a mark at the forth coming FIFA Women’s tournament in France this year.
Nigerian Breweries Plc through the Star Fan Park activation on match days of the national team have been able to restore a solid fan base for the team similar to the passion Nigerian fans attach to major football clubs in the European leagues.
Since last year, the Star Fan Park has been the platform that unites Nigerian fans, offering consumers a range of premium live football experiences mixed with entertainment and fun with famous D J and prominent star artists on hand to add to the spice.
