Windhoek - The UEFA Champions League trophy tour this week made its way to southern Africa visiting South Africa and Namibia.

Accompanied by two-time champions league winner, and former Manchester United midfielder and current manager of Wales, Ryan Giggs, the trophy is in the region to give football fans a chance to get closer to the iconic UEFA Champions League trophy and to heroes of the game.

The trophy tour started in South Africa from Monday to Wednesday before making its way to Namibia on Thursday for a two-day stop.

The trophy is also set to make its way to Mozambique 6-7 April.

As part of its global campaign, the 2019 UEFA Champions League trophy tour presented by Heineken stopped at Nelson Mandela Square in Johannesburg on 5 March at 12h00-15h00 and then headed to The Polo Room at Inanda for the match night.

Lauren Muller, Marketing Manager Johannesburg said, “We are excited to bring the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour presented by Heineken to South Africa this year. The tour is a unique experience for global football fans outside of Europe to come face to face with the UEFA Champions League trophy and to meet Ryan Giggs in their home city. Our aim is to enable fans that would otherwise not get the opportunity to experience the unmissable action of the UEFA Champions League.”

On 6 March, Giggs and the trophy headed to Durban’s Sibaya Lodge to watch Manchester United take on Paris Saint Germain.

On Thursday, the trophy was on showcase in Namibia at an exclusive event at a local hotel.

Before arriving for the UEFA Champions League final in Madrid, Spain, on 1 June 2019, the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour will also make several stops in Indonesia, China, Nigeria and the USA.
