Millington was among hundreds of other Vincentians who entered the Heineken UEFA Champions League “Road to the Final” and “Find Your Seats” promotions, which began on March 15.

By purchasing Heineken at participating outlets, each participant was given the chance to win the grand prize of two tickets to the Official UEFA Champions League ‘Road to the Final’ Viewing Party on May 25 at the Grand Stand, Queen’s Park Savannah, Trinidad.

Other prizes included Heineken brand caps, glasses and bags.

“For all the years I have been drinking Heineken, I am proud that I am the winner of this promotion,” Millington told SEARCHLIGHT on Wednesday, just before he collected his tickets.

Meanwhile, Heineken’s brand manager Vance Garraway said they are satisfied with the response from the public with regard to the promotion.

“Heineken is basically a premium brand and anything Heineken associates itself with is big events… It’s a brand that people recognize and a brand that people associate themselves with and Mr Millington’s prize’s a perfect example of the returns you can get from Heineken,” Garraway stated.

Millington leaves the island on Saturday and returns on Sunday.(AA)
