LONDON, England (Dec. 05, 2017) – To celebrate the end of the UEFA Champions League group stage, Nissan surprised football fans on their way to a match by challenging them to put their playing skills and knowledge of Europe’s biggest club competition to the test.
Teaming up with former stars and UCL legends Marcel Desailly and Mario Basler, Nissan took to the streets of London and Munich to find fans who would have what it takes to not only answer a series of tough questions on the history of the UEFA Champions League but also test their football skills against Nissan’s formidable Crossover the New X-Trail.
Those fans capable of rising to the challenge won tickets to the matchday 6 crucial final group games at both Chelsea and FC Bayern München.
