Star Lager the official beer of the Nigerian Super Eagles launched new special edition bottles on June 13 to amplify its support for Nigeria’s national team, the Super Eagles and football fans across the country.
The limited edition bottle is wrapped with new refined looks that mirrors the much celebrated Super Eagles Jersey.
The football inspired bottles carry the bold Star crest with a backdrop of green and white on the front, representing the colours of Nigeria and the national team. While three different jersey numbers — “1” representing the Star brand, “11” representing the Super Eagles, and “12” representing the Nigerian fans, who are regarded as the “12th player” on the pitch, can be found at the back of the label.
Commenting on the new label design, Senior Brand Manager, Star Lager Beer, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Abayomi Abidakun said, “With the nation about to begin their outing at the global tournament in Russia it is only befitting that we show love for our team. Star is proudly supporting the national team and millions of Nigerian football fans, and we wish the team a successful outing.”
Star and Nigerian football have a shared history, as both the beer and Nigerian national football team were born in 1949.
As official sponsors of the Super Eagles, Star Lager is providing support to the national team and football fans as well as offering premium satisfaction to over 180 million passionate fans that will be cheering the Super Eagles in the “Nigeria, United We Shine” campaign as they head to Russia.
