Official Orange CHAN 2014 sponsors POWER HORSE congratulate Nigeria on winning the bronze medal at the tournament in Cape Town

Ousting host nation South Africa and winning bronze with such a young team is a major achievement for Nigerian football according to the tournament's official sponsor POWER HORSE. As Nigeria is the premium energy drink's biggest market in Africa, the company has a special bond to football in the Gulf of Guinea nation and the Super Eagles in particular.

POWER HORSE Africa testimonial Morenikeji Taofeek Akanbi had failed to make the Super Eagles team for Orange CHAN 2014 due to being sidelined, but was invited to the Zim clash. “I kept my fingers crossed for my team mates and was delighted that they could defeat the Warriors”, the versatile striker said.

Akanbi, who moved to newly-promoted Crown FC ahead of the upcoming Nigerian Premier League season, will be POWER HORSE's face in the upcoming product promotion campaign on the African continent. Therefore, he was also assigned to handing over the top goalscorer trophy at the Orange 2014 CHAN final to South Africa ace Bernard Parker.

POWER HORSE, the energy drink with the black stallion logo, has signed a multi-year-deal to be official sponsor of the continent's major football competition in 2014 in South Africa and in 2016 Rwanda to take its engagement in African football to the next level. During Orange CHAN 2014, POWER HORSE added to the excitement of the football spectacle holding product samplings and crowd entertainment events in Cape Town and Bloemfontein.

Founded in 2004, POWER HORSE established its products as a leading brand in the premium segment of energy drinks. POWER HORSE is actually represented in more than 50 countries worldwide and it is the number one energy drink in wide parts of Africa and the Middle East. The product range includes the classic POWER HORSE regular, the calorie reduced POWER HORSE sugarfree and the flavored POWER HORSE Energy Cola.
