The fan park by Guinness has been organised to give millions of Super Eagles fans that have come to sign on the largest Super Eagles jersey in the world unveiled recently, an opportunity to interact and engage in fun games that give them hearty cheers.

It would be recalled that the largest Super Eagles jersey was unveiled on January 14, at the Teslim Balogun Stadium to galvanise Nigerians to show their support for the Super Eagles by signing and writing their goodwill messages on the jersey.

According to the organisers, the goodwill messages will be collated and forwarded to the Super Eagles in South Africa. It is believed that the goodwill messages will inspire the team to greater height because Guinness believe the Super Eagles is made of more.

Waje, Ill bliss and Flavour performed the theme song for the Guinness Fly with the Eagles campaign and the audience were simply held spell bound listening to song. Produced by famous Music producer Cohbams, the Fly with the Eagles theme song exudes Guinness’ continuous desire to support the Super Eagles as they have done in the past five years.

Speaking on the idea behind the Guinness Fan Park, the Marketing and Innovation Director, Mr. Austin Ufomba said it is Guinness’ way of giving back to its numerous consumers.

According to Ufomba, “the Guinness Fan Park is an avenue for our esteemed consumers who are ardent fans of the Nigerian Super Eagles to watch matches of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa in a very relax atmosphere. As you can notice, the concert like atmosphere shows how well sports and entertainment can be combined to give our numerous consumers unique experiences.”

The Marketing Manager, Guinness, Mr. Obinna Anyalebechi also expressed his delight at the turn out of football fans to sign on the largest jersey and watch the football matches at the Guinness Fan Park.

“The turnout has been very impressive. It shows the faith millions of Nigeria still have in the Super Eagles despite the challenges. We have engaged the best of Nigeria musical talent to entertain fans at the park after the matches. It is Guinness’ way of providing our consumers with a once-in-a-life time experience which will forever remain in their memory” Anyalebechi said.

Fans at the park were held spell bound by the artistes’ performances. Kola Soul was a delight to watch as he performed his new single Sugar Cane Daddy. The crowd sang along the lyrics as the R&B and Soul full singer displayed the stuff he is made off.

The Mathematics crooner, Sound Sultan practically raised the roof with his scintillating performance at the park. On mounting the stage, the Orobo Ku e musician left no one in doubt as he engaged the crowd with his display.

For Duncan Mighty, it did not take the Port Harcourt boy long time to blend with the expectant crowd who have thronged the venue to watch his performance. Duncan Mighty had no reason to beg anyone because he simply did nothing wrong as he engaged the fans with his scintillating performance.

Guests at the park appreciated the gesture by Guinness to provide them with the opportunity as they engage in all activities which included ball juggling, singing and dancing competitions.
