After a nationwide hunt, 86 Tiger FC fans have proven to be the strongest and wisest footie contenders in the club’s search for ‘The Ultimate Fan’. These 86 showed the most potential when they outdid the other hopefuls through football quizzes at various clubhouse activations and a collaboration with an English daily, and will battle it out for the glorious title during Tiger FC’s Big Away Game on May 1 at Laundry Bar, The Curve.
The faceoff will see these footie geniuses try to survive another three rounds of tests, in the form of multiple choice and subjective questions, before the final four is identified for the knockout session at half-time of the 9pm match, displayed on an impressive 14 feet high LED P4 screen. The winner will be crowned Tiger FC ‘The Ultimate Fan’ and rewarded with a trip for two to France to watch the football match this July.
From 7pm, friends of finalists and Tiger FC fans can join in the fanfare by cheering them on and participating in various fun activities lined up with great prizes to be won with the purchase of Tiger Beer buckets. Priced at RM55 nett for one or RM105 nett for two buckets, each bucket comes with two game tokens for fans to have a go at the Football Kick Simulator or to challenge the machine in a PS4 FIFA game to win either an action camera at or a brand new Sony PlayStation 4 respectively.
Aspiring photographers are not forgotten. Capture the spirit of the event, upload it on Tiger Beer’s Instagram page, hashtag Ultimate Fan, and the best picture wins an action camera.
Tiger Beer marketing manager Jessie Chuah said, “We’ve had a successful hunt with an impressive amount of participants, who proved they were true fans with a strong appetite and passion for football. All of them were equipped with so much football knowledge, it was inspiring to witness.
“We’re glad to have provided an avenue to reward our sturdy legion of real fans. It’ll be exciting to see who gets crowned Tiger FC’s ultimate fan.”
Since September 2015, Tiger FC began its search for the ultimate fan instilled with football know-how and an unwavering passion for the sport at selected Tiger FC clubhouses throughout this 2015/16 football season. A total of 80 PS4s were given out to champions of the football quizzes held with 350 Under Armour T-shirts extended to consolation prize winners. Those who received the hi-tech gaming console were automatically in the running for ‘The Ultimate Fan’ battle.
