In a thrilling first for football fans across Africa, Guinness is announcing a major new partnership with legendary footballer, Thierry Henry; an international football icon of the highest calibre. As part of its Made of Black programme, Guinness will be working with Henry to celebrate the unique passion of African fans and their Made of Black spirit.
Henry is famous for his time at the English 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. Named Professional Footballers’ Association Players’ Player of the Year twice, and the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year three times, Thierry Henry enriched the football viewing experience for all fans of the sport regardless of team loyalties.
He will work with Guinness in Nigeria and across Africa to shine a light on those who demonstrate their Made of Black spirit.
