A die-hard Arsenal fan, Oluwatoyin Famoofo, was full of praises to MTN as he was one of 11 lucky subscribers of the telecommunication company who attended an exclusive interactive session with three first team players of the English Premier League side.
"It's an experience I will never forget. As a die-hard Arsenal fan I had always wanted to meet the players and interact but I never imagined it would happen this way. I did not only ask them all the questions I had wanted but also met other Arsenal fans.
"All these could not have been possible without MTN, so I want to give a big kudos to them. They did a great job!" the excited fan said of the interactive session with Arsenal players.
The MTN/Arsenal Q&A Session, which held at the MTN Headquarters, Golden Plaza, Ikoyi, Lagos on Wednesday, 31st January, 2018, featured a live video conference where 11 excited fans interacted directly with Arsenal players - team captain, Laurent Koscielny; attacking forward, Danny Welbeck and defender, Shkodran Mustafi and got to ask them whatever questions they chose.
The 'Lucky 11' emerged from a draw which held on Friday, 26th January, 2018 in Lagos. They were picked from the numerous Arsenal fans who subscribe weekly to MTN's service providing exclusive daily content on Arsenal FC (including match day highlights & interviews, press conferences, as well as classic banners of both Arsenal legends and present day players).
"MTN is a brand that truly cares about its customers. Hence, going the extra mile to provide unique, enjoyable and memorable experiences such as this for our customers gives us great joy. You'd agree with me that Gunners' fans are generally passionate about football and even more about the players and the club which has a rich history of supporting Nigerian talent such as Nwankwo Kanu and Alex Iwobi" said the General Manager, Brands and Communication of MTN, Richard Iweanoge while commenting on the event.
"This Q&A session has therefore given numerous Arsenal fans in Nigeria the opportunity to interact and also discuss matters affecting their club directly with the players. It's like being called to Arsenal's board meeting and we're glad we are the brand making it happen," he concluded.
