Carlsberg BPL Viewing Party @ Movida
MHB’s Naomi Tham and I headed over to the Carlsberg BPL viewing party at Movida, Sunway Giza on 11 May 2014 for the final found of matches in the BPL’s 2013/14 season. The party featured the three most impactful matches of the night simultaneously in HD on a giant screen (unfortunately Manchester United did so badly this season that they didn’t really have much to play for except for pride and managed a 1-1 draw against a surprisingly good Southampton outfit this year).
Juliet Yap, Marketing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia, said, “Throughout the 2013/2014 season, our involvement in the BPL has enabled us to enhance the viewing experience of football fans and reward them for their love for the sport. With the culmination of the season, Carlsberg’s first of its three years as the BPL’s official beer has drawn to an epic close. We are definitely gearing up for an even more remarkable 2014/2015 season and aim to make new and unforgettable memories with Carlsberg and football fans. We are proud to share their passion for Carlsberg and the beautiful game. Now that calls for a Carlsberg!”
Emotions ran high as fans watched Liverpool’s match at home against Newcastle, where the Reds had to come from behind to win a hard-fought 2-1 victory to secure second place in the league while Manchester City romped to an easy 2-0 win over West Ham United, securing their second league title in three (3) years. Better luck next year Liverpool!
It was quite an interesting atmosphere as there were activities throughout the night for the fans who turned out for the party such as temporary tattoos, iPad games, fastest kick contest, and foosball where fans could win themselves some Carlsberg merchandise. As part of the festivities of the night, Carlsberg also gave away some authentic, limited edition Liverpool and Manchester City jerseys autographed by all current players of the Liverpool and Man City Football Clubs respectively.
There were also performances by a cheerleading team, and a duo who performed some football juggling which amazed the guests.
As the official beer of the BPL, Carlsberg sent a large number of Carlsberg contest winners to enjoy a uniquely Carlsberg BPL experience in the UK, whereby winners and their friends were given the chance to watch their favourite clubs live in the UK with full VIP treatment at the Carlsberg Hospitality Lounge of each stadium visited. There were also contests where hundreds of BPL jerseys and other merchandise to lucky consumers.
The recent winner of Carlsberg’s “Price of Passion” contest, 26-year-old Jovi Chen who pledged to create a Carlsberg collage using nothing but selfies of himself with total strangers and managed to enlist the help of 250 unsuspecting mall-goers to accomplish the feat winning himself a Carlsberg VIP trip to the UK where he experienced the brand’s hospitality at a live BPL match between Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates Stadium.
