This aligns perfectly with Coca-Cola’s mantra to uplift, unite and bridge divides.  It is why we are so proud of this opportunity to bring Nigerian football fans closer to EPL action and expand our extensive track record of sponsoring and supporting football locally and internationally.”

He added: With the slogan #LeggoNaija, it’s our way of saying “Let’s go”. It is a call to all EPL fans in Nigeria to support their individual clubs and cheer them up to victory; and beyond football, it’s a clarion call to all Nigerians to go out there and achieve their dreams, start something great, overcome all odds and make Nigeria Proud.”

With this refreshing partnership, Coca-Cola joins the likes of EA Sports, Barclays, Cadbury, Carling, Nike and TagHeuer as the seventh official partner of the EPL.
