Flair and Tigerhead Toys made one boy’s dream come true last week with a trip to Barcelona to meet footballing legend Leo Messi.

Following a summer of activity, kids across the UK entered an online Meet Leo Messi competition, organised in celebration of the Messi Training System collection of balls, goals and football training aids.

The winner, nine-year-old Cameron Massey from Birmingham, went with his family for a two-night stay in Barcelona and attended the meet and greet experience held at the Barcelona Sports City training ground.

“It was fantastic to meet my idol Lionel Messi,” he says. “I will remember this for the rest of my life, and it proves that dreams can come true.”

During the event, Cameron got to pose for pictures with Messi who also signed t-shirts and Messi Training System products for him to keep as a special memento of the occasion.

Iulia Toader, Boys Marketing Manager, Flair says: “We spread the word of this very special prize through social media, pre-roll activity, kid’s influencer videos and with the help of Kick and Kick Extra Magazines. 

"We are delighted to have been able to be part of his very special experience.”
