Guinness hosts matchday event at the Edge Convention Centre

Guinness held a matchday event at The Edge Convention Centre in Nairobi over the weekend. During the event over 4,000 football fans were treated to a matchday experience where every little detail had been curated just for them.

An abundance of screens including 3 mega screens meant no one missed a moment of the action, cozy seating kept everyone comfortable all through the games and an array of snack options paired with perfectly chilled Guinness created the ultimate football atmosphere at the Guinness Matchday.

This was a matchday truly made for the fans and by the fans as Guinness collaborated with some of Kenya’s most passionate football fans to bring this to life.

The Guinness Committee led by The Chairman, G Money made sure that the voice of the fans was at the centre of this next level live football viewing experience. Matchday Optics officer Zuhum worked with Guinness to transform The Edge Convention Centre into a football haven, complete with multiple display screens including 3 mega screens for a real-time, immersive viewing experience, complemented by a multi-directional audio system that enveloped attendees in the sonic ambiance of a live stadium.

Director of Drinks Analysis, Carol Radull was on hand (and even behind the bar) to ensure that all fans got their Guinness at the perfectly chilled temperature, while Chief Snacks Officer Nana Owiti sampled and picked out the perfect snack options to be enjoyed with a Guinness. whilst Soft-life Ambassador Eli Mwenda ensured fans got comfortable seating and dedicated booths for their groups as well as headphones for those who wanted to catch commentary from different games on different screens.

Guinness Marketing Manager Henrietta Reed reiterated the brand’s commitment to football fandom and facilitating experiences that enable fans to rally behind their teams like never before.

“Guinness shares in our football fans’ love for the game, which is what inspired the epic matchday experience we created this weekend. It was amazing seeing football fans coming together to rally behind their favorite teams and enjoy the space we carefully created for them with the help of our Guinness Matchday committee. Our fans got to enjoy some beautiful matchday moments together this last weekend and we are committed to doing even more of this, so watch out for what’s to come next on our brand pages,” said Ms. Reed.

Fans were treated to an electric atmosphere after the match thanks to chief Chief Vibes Officer Mukami Wambora and Chief Entertainment Officer Lotan Salapei who selected the ultimate line up of artists and DJs including Bien Aime and Fena Gitu with DJs CNG, Dream, Pskratch, Protege and Sir M keeping fans on the groove. Sauti Sol’s Bien delivered the perfect ending to the weekend with a charged performance of hit tracks from Kenyan boy band and his new album and a surprise appearance by Bensoul.
