Manchester City: Tecno, one of world’s leading mobile phone companies signed a global partnership with football club Manchester City in 2016. The mobile phone company decided to reward its loyal customers from Africa with a trip to the UK to watch the match between Manchester City and Liverpool.

Tour of Etihad Stadium

The four loyal customers who were selected were treated to a tour of the Etihad Stadium, including the various facilities that are used by the players. The stadium which can accommodate over 55,000 people is such a piece of art, even the chilly Manchester weather could not dampen photo taking sessions.

Match day

As would be expected, the crowds arrived early ready to cheer their teams. The Tecno visitors were ushered into Legends, a vibrant restaurant where fans celebrate Manchester City’s great players. A sumptuous meal was served just before the great experience begun.

The match ended in a draw but it was an experience to remember for the Tecno Mobile Africa customers.
