IN continuation of its unflinching support to Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Guinness Nigeria Monday unveiled world’s largest football jersey to drum up backing for the Stephen Keshi-tutored side.
At the Teslim Balogun Stadium, the 275.5 X 245.9 square metres jersey was unveiled and it is to be signed by millions of Nigerians willing to support the team for football fiesta.
According to the Marketing and Innovation Director, Guinness Nigeria Plc, Austin Ufomba, the unveiling of the jersey is one of the activations put together by the company to rally support for the senior national team.
“Even when the team failed to qualify for the 2012 Nations Cup, Guinness has remained committed to supporting the team and this jersey unveiling is one of the activations under the Guinness Fly With the Eagles promo. Already 200 people that will fly to South Africa to support the team have been selected through the daily draw while the promo is still ongoing. The jersey will go round the country and fans are expected to sign on it to show their support to the team,” Ufomba said.
The record-breaking attempt is to help break the world record for the largest football jersey on Planet Earth, and Guinness is proud sponsor of this historical event.
Also, fans will get the rare privilege of writing their messages of support to the Super Eagles on this massive jersey, which will be on display at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, from yesterday to Friday January 25, 2013.
