The GUINNESS FOOTBALL CHALLENGE, the TV game show phenomenon which has excited audiences across Africa for the last two years, is back for an incredible third Season, and this time around, it is going to be Pan-African!
The show kicks off on NTV on March 20th at 8pm, as we see football lovers from Uganda step up to see if they have what it takes to ‘Play for their Country’.
GUINNESS scoured the country last year to find contestants who were able to demonstrate that they are real team players with the confidence to live bold.
From the hundreds of hopefuls that turned out for the auditions at MUBS sports ground in Nakawa, just eight teams of football loving Ugandans were chosen to star in the new season of the show.
They will first take on football loving teams from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda in the trivia and skill challenges on the GUINNESS FOOTBALL CHALLENGE, and the teams who give 100% and show that they can be a player and not a spectator will then go on to represent Uganda in the Pan-African competition. The Pan-African episodes will see the best teams from the national episodes go head-to-head with contestants from Cameroun, Ghana, Tanzania and Kenya to see who has the skill and knowledge to go all the way and be crowned Pan-African champions and be in with a chance to win up to 250,000USD.
Season 2’s hosts Larry Asego and Flavia Tumusiime will team up again to host Season three and take the contestants through the national rounds.
Robert V. Nsibirwa, Brand Manager GUINNESS said “We are very excited to announce the return of the GUINNESS FOOTBALL CHALLENGE to Uganda. We have some great contestants this year and we can’t wait to see how they get on in the new Pan-African competition. We know how much the nation loves football, but will our contestants do us proud against the other nations? Make sure you tune in to find out!”
