Mastercard, UEFA Champions League Final 2017 // Best Use of Hospitality

With our friends at Mastercard, we hosted close to 800 guests from all over the world in a best-in-class hospitality suite and got as close as you can to the action with Mastercard’s player mascots at both the Men’s and Women’s Finals. In addition, we challenged fans to show how far they would go for their teams. More than 450 fans got their hair shaved match-day ready in our barber shop in the fanzone with some notorious #MadnessOrPriceless haircuts. There was a singing Barbershop Quartet and we delivered Priceless Surprises with our ambassador Ryan Giggs awarding tickets to the UCL Final along the way. 

A year of planning and hard work coming together for all but 90 minutes of football, but the team can’t wait to do it again in Kiev.
