Tuesday, 7th May 2019, marked one of the most anticipated matches in football history. Durban Media and Influencers were invited to an exclusive VIP UEFA Champions League Viewing Experience all in the name of #Heineken and Football!
Before the actual venue of events, News Cafe, Umhlanga was the pre-destination spot for welcoming drinks and tags before all invited guests were to be whisked away in VIP shuttles to the “secret location”.
Upon arrival, Bright Red and Green Lights brightened up the entire venue stating that Heineken has officially left its mark not only upon the secret location but the city of Durban. Guests arrived in numbers to bear witness to a mighty match between soccer teams-Liverpool and Barcelona in the Semi-Finals of the League.
Durbanites at heart and Hosts for the evening, Homeground Presenter: Minnie Dlamini-Jones and The River Actor: Lungile Shabalala kept everyone entertained with their witty humor and soccer knowledge.
The room had an intense division as most guests were in support of the Mighty Spanish Team- Barcelona and a few true supporters of the English team – Liverpool stood firmly behind their team.
In the first 15minutes, Divock Origi scored a beautiful goal which threw Barcelona off its entire strategy. This led to Georginio Wijnaldum who further thrashed the English team with two goals in the second half but a beautiful ending by Divock who scored the 4th goal for the team leaving the underdogs victorious at the Semi-Finals!
#Unmissable Moments at the secret location was absolutely epic. #Liverpool smashed #Barcelona 4-0, #Heineken was flowing and we ended the night dancing away to Gagasi DJ’s, Sphe and Naves. Heineken really knows how to throw a party. Salute!!!
