GP Flair fan meets Lionel Messi with FootBubbles campaign

A worldwide FootBubbles campaign has given one lucky fan the chance to meet football player, Lionel Messi, thanks to GP Flair.

The competition saw fans upload their FootBubbles skills to Facebook in a bid to win the prize.

Flair’s FootBubbles range lets fans train just like the famous footballer with special socks designed in the style of Messi’s boots, and a unique bubble solution that allows the wearer to play keepy-uppie.

Hasan Khan was crowned the winner of the competition and was flown to Barcelona to watch Messi during a training session with FC Bareclona.

“It’s so rewarding to see the Footbubbles campaign making young fans’ dreams come true,” said Anne-Marie Noon, marketing manager at GP Flair.

“With the recent launch of the new Messi Training System collection, this is a really exciting time for the range.”
