Football fans in the Garden City were thrilled on Sunday August 25, 2013 when Harp Premium Lager gave them a spectacular experience at the star match between Dolphins FC and Enugu Rangers. Harp, official sponsor of the two opposing teams in addition to three others in the NPFL, used this opportunity to bring fun and entertainment to the match between the two epic teams.
Entry to the stadium was free for all fans as the gates were thrown open courtesy of the number one beer for friendship. The Harp Arena within the stadium grounds was a special treat for fans, highlights included penalty shoot-out and ball juggling competitions, beer sampling as well as a raffle draw that saw lucky consumers walk away with prizes such as Blackberry phones, generators and freezers.
Marketing Manager, Harp Lager, Paul Asemota said the beer saw an opportunity to connect with and also reward fans and consumers. “This reflects our commitment to enhance the experience of football fans across the country. Harp, the number one beer for friendship, is associated with vibrancy, fun and boldness; we definitely promise the fans more fun as they continue to support the Local League.”
Harp also made the game especially memorable for five fans who won a special experience in a Facebook contest, as they got a chance to meet and interact with some of the players.
The keenly contested encounter saw Dolphins FC edge out Enugu Rangers FC by two goals to nothing.
