Vanity vibes! Super honoured to be playing for the unveil of the uefa trophy in Mumbai.
For those who are not a football savvy, the UEFA Champions League Trophy is one of the unique kinds of club football prizes in the world. The trophy was unveiled by the former UCL winner and one of Liverpool FC‘s greatest players, Luis Garcia. This happened in the presence of our very own Indian football star Sunil Chhetri at the Mahalaxmi Race Course in Mumbai.
Well, Mumbai was chosen through a contest conducted by Heineken on twitter and won against the cities like Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore and came as the most preferred venue for the event. The contest encouraged fans from the above cities to compete and vote for their city for a chance for their city to host the trophy. The competition was a neck to neck battle between the cities but eventually, Mumbai came was chosen to host the trophy. Along with that, 8 fortunate fans were chosen through twitter to play with the legends Luis Garcia and Sunil Chhetri in a 5 a side match which was held at the Turf Club in Mumbai.
The opening ceremony had many artists perform and Divine was the artist amongst them. He dished out tracks which made the crowd groove and sway on its feet and dance off to his music and well the rest is history.
