Former Manchester United English centre back Rio Ferdinand will headline the Guinness Pan African Football Extravaganza Finale in Lagos, Nigeria.
One team from Ugandans will have a chance to rub shoulders with the defender who also played for West Ham, Leeds United, Bournemouth and QPR.
Ferdinand, who is currently a BT Sport pundit, played 81 times for England, 312 for Man United where he won six league titles and a UEFA champions league title.
Uganda’s grand finale will be held on Saturday, December 7 at UMA exhibition hall in Kampala.
“I cannot tell you how delighted we are to be working with a legend like Rio Ferdinand, like I said at the launch, Guinness Night Football is not your everyday football; we are bringing the party and the fun to the game of football, trust me it does not get any better than Rio,” said Cathy Twesigye, Brand Manager Guinness.
Saturday’s action is expected to be nothing less than fire wax as it will be the weighing scale of who gets to meet Ferdinand in for the pan African Guinness-5 –Aside Football Extravaganza.
Winners in Kampala are set to join other players from around the content and together meet the Manchester legend for an epic footballing experience in a yet to be disclosed football capital.
