It is not every day that the likes of David James, Teddy Sheringham, Emile Heskey, Darren Anderton, Lee Hendrie, Carlton Palmer, Guido Buchwald, Michael Gray and Fredi Bobic would appear in the heartlands to take photos with fans and sign football memorabilia.
So it was no surprise when hundreds of fans lined up at the Courts Megastore in Tampines at noon yesterday to catch a glimpse of the stars.
The nine former England and Germany internationals made a special appearance for a meet-and-greet session with fans and lucky shoppers.
The players were in Singapore for the Battle of Europe at the National Stadium last night, won 4-2 by England.
The meet-and-greet opportunity was made possible by Courts, which sees football sponsorships as a good way to connect with Singaporeans who share a strong passion for the sport.
"Courts is proud to be able to bring a whole host of football legends to connect with fans and shoppers in our Megastore today," said Terry O'Connor, Group CEO of Courts Asia.
"We have always been committed to giving our shoppers the best experiences, and connecting via the shared passion of football is one of the best ways for us to give back to the local community." - DAVID LEE
