This simply means wise words of support by a fan could be seen by the Premier League’s massive cumulative audience of 4.7 billion people!
The launch took place at a Carlsberg hosted football viewing party held at the latest sports bar in town, Score, which saw Liverpool matched up against Everton while Arsenal faced Southampton in a clash of league powerhouses.
To get BPL fans excited about the much anticipated matches, the country’s No. 1 most preferred beer brand gave away authentic Liverpool merchandise to fans who participated in the “Guess the Score and Win” contest.
Juliet Yap, Marketing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia, said: “As the official beer sponsor of the Premier League, we have access to exclusive rights and the network to bring a uniquely Carlsberg BPL experience to our fans and football diehards in the country.”

We have a strong football heritage spanning almost 40 years and this has played a key role in building a loyal following of footie fans both in Malaysia and worldwide.”
In addition to the Strikr app, the Carlsberg BPL experience is also about rewarding consumers via its numerous contests with premium BPL merchandise and giving those lucky ones the chance to watch their favourite teams in action in the United Kingdom.
Guests at the viewing party also took part in fun interactive football games on the X-Box Kinect and i-Pad, while victories, be it on screen or online, were toasted with cold glasses of Carlsberg!
