Soccer fans, guess what? Heineken's second UCL stadium is opening up at Fairmont Heliopolis! If it's anything like their last one in Zamalek then you'll definitely find us there this coming Tuesday - if you can spot us among the crowd, that is.
Heineken is going all out this season with, not one, but two stadium experiences located at opposite ends of the city. The first one at the Cairo Marriott Hotel in Zamalek is truly an unparalleled experience - don't try to find something like it, mafeesh. The whole design of the place and the gigantic LED screen makes you feel like you’re actually in a stadium, and you can drink all the Heinekens you want, but you must promise us to enjoy responsibly *wink*. Our experience there was truly amazing; so much fun, the food was awesome, the drinks were flowing, and we played foosball, did the virtual reality challenge, and had an all-around awesome time.
The second stadium set to open this week at the Fairmont Heliopolis' Egyptian Nights is sure to be spectacular; we can't wait! Heineken promises that it will be nothing less than the Marriott experience. If you don't already know, Heineken has a virtual reality competition that could potentially take you to Ibiza - if you win, that is. Even if you don't go to Ibiza, Heineken won't let you go home empty handed - they wouldn't do that to you. Prizes in the form of cool Heineken merchandise await; all you have to do is buy two Heinekens, take part in the competition, get your scratch card, and take home your prize. Prizes vary from handbags to footballs, and a second grand prize to attend the Champion’s League final and party celebration right here in Cairo. All you have to worry about is getting yourself a reservation; everyone wants to go, and space is limited.
No but literally, that's actually all you have to worry about; you don't even have to fret about driving there and back or making sure that you drag along a friend to be a designated driver - a friend who will subsequently hate you because they just have to sit there and watch you knock back beers while they twiddle their thumbs. Now the reason you don't have to barter your favourite Pokemon card for a designated driver is because Uber offering complimentary rides to and from the Heineken Soccer Bar. Their promo code "HeinekenDowntown" is good for two rides to/from the soccer bar. YAAAS we don't have worry about losing our car keys.
