DHL Delivers Premier League Trophy to Thailand
DHL Express recently delivered Leicester City’s Premier League trophy to Thailand for a special event with customers, employees and fans in the country.
This was part of the ‘DHL Trophy Tour 2017’ to commemorate the Club’s first Premier League Trophy win in the 132 years since it was founded. Emile Heskey, legendary forward for LCFC and the England national team who scored more than 150 goals in his career, graced the event.
Leicester City’s Japanese star Shinji Okazaki also delivered a video message at the event: “Lifting the Premier League trophy was a really wonderful experience for me – it was something I dreamt of as a child. I hope many Asian football fans enjoyed a similar feeling at ‘The DHL Trophy Tour 2017’. I’m right in the middle of the league season here in the UK so unfortunately I couldn’t be there. Emile is a Leicester City legend and it is great that he can represent us and celebrate this historic achievement with you. To thank my supporters, I’ve also autographed some shirts and asked DHL to send them with the trophy!”
Chananyarak Phetcharat, Managing Director, DHL Express Thailand said, “DHL has been a proud partner of Leicester City since 2014, delivering official merchandise to 66 countries, including Thailand. We know the club is well loved in Thailand, hence we teamed up with Leicester City to deliver the DHL Trophy Tour 2017 here. We are proud to have been able to ensure the event’s success within a short window of only three days, through our Import Express Service.”
