Harry Redknapp joins Mondelez and World Duty Free Cadbury FC tour

By Charlotte Turner |

Mondelez World Travel Retail (WTR) and World Duty Free hosted a football-themed activation at Stansted Airport last month for iconic British confectionery brand, Cadbury, which kicked off on the 4 April with a special guest appearance from English footballing legend, Harry Redknapp.

 

Redknapp inaugurated the ‘Cadbury FC tour’, visiting the activation as part of its official unveiling, attracting large crowds to the ‘Fan Zone’, which featured various digital elements including an interactive skills game, a virtual photo call opportunity, augmented reality sleeves, as well as exclusive laser-printed chocolate bars.

 

The Fanzone was completed by a Walk of Fame which included signed shirts from footballing stars Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane and Virgil Van Dijk.

 

TRACTION ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Following Redknapp’s visit, Jake Quickenden also made a stop at the Stansted activation. Quickenden became famous as a contestant on British reality television music competition The X Factor, as well as other local reality television shows including Dancing On Ice and Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.

 

The popular English star took photos with football fans, challenged travellers to kick-offs to win Cadbury prizes, and shared his experience with his one million followers on Instagram.

 

While the activation at Stansted is now over, Mondelez reveals that it will have some more exciting news to share in the coming weeks.
