From Thursday, 26 October to Sunday, 29 October, MultiChoice will take the famous Premier League winner’s trophy on a tour across select locations in Lagos, Nigeria, including a public viewing event where fans will have access to the trophy on Saturday, 28 October.
The Premier League trophy visits different countries, every year, where the league is significantly followed, and Nigeria ranks highly amongst countries like India, Japan and South East Asia where the league enjoys immense support and following. The trophy will be visiting Nigeria for the second time after a first visit in 2011, also courtesy MultiChoice.
Fans and followers of the Premier League will have the opportunity of living the dream of their football heroes when the Premier League Trophy arrives Lagos later in October. This presents a once in a lifetime experience for lucky MultiChoice subscribers, who will not only get a chance to be a part of the trophy tour around Lagos, but also meet Nigerian football legends like Jay Jay Okocha, Victor Ikpeba and a host of others.
