Bud Cup History
The Bud Cup started in 1998 and was part of Budweiser’s FIFA World Cup sponsorship platform as a marketing and promotional asset for local markets. The whole idea of the International 6 v 6 tournaments is to bring consumers together to celebrate their love of beer and their passion for football.
Budweiser (pronounced /ˈbʌdwaɪzər/) is a 5.0% abv American-style lager introduced in 1876 by Adolphus Busch and one of the highest selling beers in the United States. It is made with up to 30% rice in addition to hops and barley malt. Budweiser is produced in various breweries located around the United States and the rest of the world. It is a filtered beer available in draught and packaged forms. Now you can enjoy this beer in the selected local store nationwide.
Budweiser actually is also a German adjective which means something or someone from the city of České Budějovice in Southern Bohemia, Czech Republic.
