While the excitement of the new season is already spreading like wildfire across the world, football fans in Nigeria are set for even more thrilling experience when the reigning English football kings, Manchester City begin their trophy tour of the country today.

Interestingly, Manchester City is not coming empty-handed to the country but with one of the club’s legends, Richard Micah, who is coming with one of City’s prized silverware of 2018/19 football season, the object of world’s most-followed domestic league.

The visit to Nigeria is partly to celebrate the making of football history, as Manchester City became the first football club to lift six trophies in one season.


The Cityzens are on the road to celebrate with fans in 15 countries, including Nigeria, from July this year and from August 29 to September 1, 2019, they will berth in Lagos.

The trophy tour is sponsored among others by NB Plc’s Star Lager.

Among many other things, this tour will bring an authentic Premiership League football experience to Lagos, just as Star Lager beer will engage passionate football fans in the country with teasers on all digital platforms tagged ‘An Evening with the Champions of England’.

Fans are expected to answer related questions about the club’s feat last season to win a ticket and be part of the unique programme on Sunday. 

Exciting activations and VIP interactions with the trophy and club legend will form the star event at the Heineken House in Ikoyi, Lagos, where Manchester City fans would be treated to an exclusive consumer experience.
