Jamaica will be the only Caribbean country to host one of world football's most prestigious trophies, the UEFA Champions League Trophy, which will be presented in an official four day tour by Heineken on March 20 -23.

The trophy will make stops in Kingston, Clarendon, St Ann and St James.

Suwannee Stewart, Brand Manager for Heineken told STAR SPORTS that Heineken International decided that this year Jamaica would be the first stop on the Global Trophy Tour.

"For us, that means we start the race and you know how we Jamaicans get when it comes to Sports," he said.

 

International superstar

 

Stewart implored fans and consumers across the island to get involved, and salute the trophy.

"We are also bringing an international superstar in the history of the UEFA Champion League; a star baller, and a great guy, who Jamaicans will love, from the moment he steps foot on Jamaican soil," the brand manager revealed.

"This Trophy has never before graced Caribbean shores, and so Heineken wanted to bring the legendary Champion's League Trophy first to our country to symbolise the strength of Jamaica as a destination for our brand, and for international football," he added.
