The Dutch brewer has also extended its UEFA Champions League partnership by another three years, from 2021 to 2024.

Heineken’s Euro 2020 contract includes exclusive pouring rights at stadiums, fan zones and fan villages, LED pitch boarding exposure, digital rights, Man of the Match presentations, match screenings and ticket giveaways.
The brand will also activate global TV and digital integrated marketing campaigns – utilising its global football ambassador Thierry Henry.
