Football fans across the island rejoiced when Heineken brought the excitement of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) to Jamaica for the UCL Trophy Tour to Margaritaville in Ocho Rios. They were able to get a close look on Wednesday when Ruud van Nistelrooy, former Manchester United striker and UCL Ambassador, paid a visit with the trophy.

Through Heineken's 'Champion Di Trophy' campaign, the beer brand set to deliver an exciting schedule of activities, including fan access to van Nistelrooy, and a live performance by popular local musician I-Octane, who kept the energy up with hit songs like Whine and Jiggle, and Mama You Alone.

The four-day trophy tour, which took place from March 20 - 23, gave fans the rare opportunity to interact with the coveted trophy, and top football striker van Nistelrooy.

Other stops on the tour included Triple Century on Monday, March 20; Fya Side, Clarendon, and the National Indoor Stadium in Kingston on Tuesday, March 21; and Pier-1 on Thursday, March 23.
