Putting the fizz in Festival City

Festival City will welcome a festival of football tomorrow as more than 200 young players descend on the area to take part in the UAE leg of the Pepsi Street Skills competition.

Registration saw hundreds of 14-19 year olds apply for the chance to dazzle the audience and win the chance to travel to London and Barcelona to meet superstars Cesc Fabregas, Lionel Messi and Thierry Henry.

Ibrahim Binaquil, GCC senior brand manager for PepsiCo International, said: "Ten players will be nominated to win the dream trip to meet International Pepsi stars Fabregas, Messi and Henry in London and Barcelona.

"These are three of the most loved football players, and the winner will meet them."

The Pepsi Skills challenge has already been to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia and will travel next to Oman on June 27.
