Unilever Ghana Limited through its Rexona deodorant and anti-perspirant brand has launched the ‘’Be The Next Champion’’ campaign as part of its partnership with English giants Chelsea FC.
The campaign is a skills competition aimed at choosing a Ghanaian representative to be part of African 11 team to play against Chelsea legends.
The lucky aspiring footballer will spend a day training with Chelsea coaches at the team’s training ground in Cobham. The fans are not left out. One lucky fan will win a Chelsea dream to watch the Blues train and meet at the Cobham Training Centre.
According to the Managing Director of Unilever Ghana Limited, Mr Yeo Ziobeieton his outfit considers this campaign as an opportunity to provide a platform to showcase to the world the true spirit of Ghanaian football and keep this spirit alive especially so, considering the fact that Ghana did not qualify for World Cup this year.
