Arsenal fans in Kenya and Imperial Bank Arsenal Affinity Account holders were given once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view and take photos with the FA Cup at the Capital Club, Nairobi on Tuesday.
The Gunners thrashed Aston Villa 4-0 in the final in May to retain the Cup.
This is the second time the FA Cup was coming to Kenya courtesy of Imperial Bank, Arsenal’s official partner after last year’s tour. Apart from posing for pictures, Gunners fans were also allowed to touch the glittering cup.
“This is a great chance for the fans in Kenya to get their photographs taken with the trophy. We were particularly eager to showcase it first in Kenya and share our excitement of our win with Arsenal fans here. We are happy that our partnership with Imperial Bank has helped us reach our fans in the country and expose them to the Cup,” said Gordon Tannock, Arsenal FC’s Head Partner Services.
