Last weekend April 7th was the launch of the EUFA ERUO 2012 Trophy in Town media event. I had the pleasure to attend the event thanks of course to Tim Chew from Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers. The event was held at Sunway Pyramid with eager football and Carlsberg fans just waiting to see the much anticipated EUFA EURO 2012 Trophy in all it’s sterling silver glory. – ok actually it was a well made replica by Carlsberg, but good enough! ^_^
This was the first appearance of the EUFA EURO trophy in Malaysia since the European championships began. Soren Ravn Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia told the crowd that “As official sponsor and most preferred beer in the country, they are proud to reward football fans in Malaysia with a chance to get up close and personal with the cup…”
and not just him there was another surprise too. Fans could also get up close and personal with.. The legendary goalkeeper to Manchester United, the player who was voted as the best goalkeeper in the year 1992 and 1993. The Great Dane.
I wasn’t a fan of Manchester United till probably 7 years ago. Back then i didn’t get to see Scemeichel play, however i’ve heard about him, i read about him and i also saw his old footage via youtube. And he is a crazy fabulous goalkeeper! Just check this video out of all his highlights.
The legend walked on to stage to a very astonished crowd and Soren had a quick chit chat session with him before opening up the stage so people could take shots with the Trophy.
And of course i quickly managed to get a shot of the man himself together with Soren and York Spencer – Marketing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia.
Oh just to let you know he will going around KL to meet and great the fans. Telling them a bit more bout his role as ambassador and of course to answer questions from the fans. This will be happening on the 11th of April.
The good stuff doesn’t stop there. Carlsberg then told the crowd that they will be sending 100 fortunate fans to catch the semi-final live of Euro 2012 in Ukraine!
According to Carlsberg, participation in its “Are You Fan Enough?” promotion to win a trip to Ukraine couldn’t be any easier. All one needs to do is purchase Carlberg in a quart, pint or can at any bar, restaurant or supermarket. Checkout more details on their website here and on their facebook page.
So are you game to be part of EURO 2012? ^_^
