Mumbai was chosen for the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour through a Twitter contest by Heineken? across four cities (Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata). The contest encouraged fans from each city to tweet, vote and compete for their chance to host the trophy. Each city was given a specific hashtag, for example: #ChampionTheTrophyBLR ? for Bangalore, #ChampionTheTrophyMUM ? for Mumbai, and fans battled it out online with the maximum tweets to win the rights to unveil the trophy in their city. The competition was close, but after days of continuous voting and tweeting, the city of Mumbai emerged victorious.
