â€œTo win an opportunity to watch a match with Thierry Henry, consumers only need to buy a bottle of their iconic beer, Guinness, and text the code under the crown cork with their name to 1759,â€ observed the Guinness director.
Thierry Henry is famous for his time at Premier League Club Arsenal where he was part of a team that won two league titles and three FA Cups as well as leading his team to the 2006 UEFA Champions League Final in his role as captain.

The Made of Black campaign is something I can really relate to. This will be my first visit to Nigeria and I have heard a lot about the huge passion for football that exists there. I canâ€™t wait to arrive and meet all of the dedicated football fans and see for myself their Made of Black spirit,â€ the former Arsenal legend was quoted in a message on the campaign.
