A worldwide FootBubbles campaign has given one UK fan the opportunity to meet Lionel Messi.
The Footbubbles competition saw football fans upload their Footbubbles skills to Facebook in a bid to win the once in a lifetime prize. The GP Flair Footbubbles range lets fans train just like Messi with special socks, designed in the style of Messi’s boots, and a unique bubble solution which allows the wearer to play keepy-uppie.
As part of the competition prize, Hasan Khan from London was flown out to Barcelona to watch Messi during an FC Barcelona training session, and afterwards he was given the chance to hang out with the star for pictures and autographs.
Anne-Marie Noon, marketing manager at GP Flair, commented: “It’s so rewarding to see the Footbubbles campaign making young fans’ dreams come true. With the recent launch of the new Messi Training System collection, this is a really exciting time for the range.”
The Footbubbles brand is part of a larger Messi range which also includes the new Messi Training System range.
