Nigeria: Pepsi Holds Five-Aside Football Tourney

As part of activities to launch its new advert campaign theme tagged Kicked In The Mix, Pepsi, a leading soft drink company will be organizing a 5-aside football tournament at the sports centre of the University of Lagos on Tuesday, June 26, 2012.

The tourney, which is aimed at creating excitement and fun for the university community, according to Mr. Norden Thurston of Seven-Up Bottling Company Plc, will involve registered teams from among the ranks of Unilag students.

According to him, students in the same department or hall of residence can form a team to participate in the competition and win fantastic prizes.

The competition according to Thurston has no age or gender barrier as students of the institution have equal opportunity to contest in as much as they can form the mandatory 8-member team and register to participate in the competition.

The one-day football competition will also feature some exciting side attractions like music and dance. Spectators will also have the opportunity to go home with lots of Pepsi branded gift items.
