Headed over  to Movida in Sunway Giza, Petaling Jaya on 21 April 2013 with the Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers girls and Andy Kho for the Stadium Carlsberg viewing party for the Tottenham Hotspurs vs. Manchester City and Liverpool vs. Chelsea matches, with a special appreance of 27 football legends who were taken on a bar-hopping ‘Meet The Fans’ spree throughout the Klang Valley which included SOULed Out, Sri Hartamas; Dong Men, Scott Garden; and Brussels, Jaya One, before heading over to the main event at Movida, Sunway Giza.

Rob Jones, Dietmar Hamann, Stephen Henchoz, Frank Le Boeuf, Dennis Wise, Ronny Johnsen, Bjørn Tore Kvarme, Mark Wright, Tore Andre Flo, Lee Sharpe, and Jason McAteer were among the legends who visited the outlets.

Carlsberg and football?

Well over the years, Carlsberg’s has supported the beautiful game with its sponsorship of Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspurs and Stoke City football clubs. It is also the official beer for several major national and international tournaments, including the UEFA EURO Championships which began in 1988.

Now back to the story.

The grand prize for the games that consumers could participate in that night was a 50" LED TV! Unfortunately I didn't win it but I did manage to win a fully customized orginal EPL jersey! Yay!

“EPL fans worldwide have been looking forward to these two matches as there are not many super clashes left till this late into the season, and Malaysian football fans are some of the most enthusiastic around. With the EPL legends in town, we were able to give our consumers and fans of the game an even more exhilarating and unique viewing experience of these two games,” said Soren Ravn, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia.

“Our consumers have come to expect the very best from us given football has long been a part of Carlsberg’s rich heritage. Over the years we have earned the right to be the game’s beer of choice and with our official involvement in EPL, fans should gear up for even more excitement when Carlsberg kicks off the 2013/14 season in August as the League’s beer partner for three years. Now that calls for a Carlsberg!” explained Soren while he was busy ‘layaning’ us and the rest of the VIP guests.

I thought the EPL sponsorship by Carlsberg was exciting news indeed!

Well here’s how the matches finished:

Tottenham Hotspurs 3 – 1 Manchester City (way to go Spurs!)

Liverpool 2 – 2 Chelsea (famous for the Suarez ‘biting’ incident hahaha!)
