Meet Didier Drogba Up, Close and Personal at Yokohama VIP Dinner
Yokohama, the official partner of five-time Premier League Champions and current FA Cup holders Chelsea FC, brought club legend Didier Drogba to Selangor, Malaysia on Saturday 8th December, 2018.
The unique fan event was fronted by Chelsea legend and Yokohama ambassador Drogba, who is admired by Chelsea and football fans across the world. Having won 12 major club trophies during his two spells at the club (2004-2012 and 2014-15), Drogba is seen as a true global superstar and an inspiration to millions around the world.
The special meet-and-greet event with Drogba took place at the Sunway Pyramid Mall, from 12.30pm to 2pm, and saw hundreds of Chelsea football fans filling the LG2 Central Avenue.
As Yokohama’s global ambassador, Drogba also made his presence in an exclusive Yokohama VIP dinner that was held at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur later that day. About 200 people were invited by YHI Malaysia, the sole distributor of Yokohama tyres in Malaysia, including dealers, guests and media to meet the former Blues striker.
The event started with a performance by a group of football freestylers, followed by a question-and-answer session during which Drogba answered questions from Chelsea’s fans who were also Yokohama’s dealers.
Dealers were trilled with the opportunity to meet the English League Club legend up close and personal and having their merchandise autographed. Each table also enjoyed the moment of having a group photo taken with him. It was indeed a wonderful and once-in-a-life time experience for the dealers.
Yokohama has started a new initiative ‘Drive for More’ that would run across France, India, Malaysia, Portugal, Spain and Vietnam, with Drogba meeting Chelsea fans and Yokohama customers along the way to discuss his glittering career. Drogba would visit a number of Yokohama’s key markets in the world, including Malaysia, following a successful sales and marketing campaign from September to November this year.
