Fox International Channels hosts BPL LIVE Match Viewing Party 'Battle of the Reds'

The other day I was at Sunway Giza in Kota Damansara for the LIVE Match Viewing Party hosted by Fox International Channels (FIC). The place was pretty crowded as hundreds of fans witnessed eternal rivals Liverpool F.C. and Manchester United F.C. battle each other in High Definition (HD) at the Barclays Premier League (BPL).



Fans witnessed all the thrills and spills LIVE on Fox Sports, cheering on for their respective teams and jeering their rivals, in what was one of the most explosive and highly anticipated fixtures of this season.

In addition to the LIVE telecast of the “Battle of the Reds”, there were several exciting activities organised for the fans, including the Fox Sports Football Simulator, Fox Sports Double Dribble and Play Station 3 Football Challenge. Not to mention the trivia sessions, where fans were going all out to win merchandises as well as prizes from Fox Sports and sponsors such as Revive, Uberman and MYEG.

There are also merchandises of both football teams sold at the event.



Prizes were also given out to the top two ‘Best Dressed’ male and female as well as those who came up top in the ‘Score Prediction’ activities respectively. The crowd was not also at the receiving end as Fox Sports goodie bags were distributed to the early birds. On top of that, there were football jugglers and cheerleaders entertaining them with their performances.

“We are pleased to organise an event like this for the fans of English football, as we continue to bring our viewers the best in sports,” said Ms. Penny Tan, Marketing Director, FIC. 

“Watching the two football giants battle it out is even more exciting when you are surrounded by hundreds of fans who are emotionally invested in the game. It’s great to see that all the rivalry and trash-talking is done in good fun and doesn’t get out of hand, regardless of the outcome. Additionally, we are glad to see the fans’ reception to all the activities organised, as everyone seemed to be on a mission to go home with a prize. I guess that is the beauty of events like this, as it not only entertains but also, ultimately, brings the fans together,” she added.

Prizes for the lucky draw, football juggling and also the best dress at the event.

In a typical ‘Battle of the Reds’ showcase, the match was filled with non-stop excitement the entire 90 minutes, with Manchester United getting the better of their bitter rivals, Liverpool, 2-1. Although I am an Arsenal fan but I do enjoy the event and watching the football match despite having Steven Gerard out of the field after only 40 seconds in the match.

Fans can tune in to FOX Sports (ASTRO Channel 812) and FOX Sports HD (ASTRO Channel 832) to catch all the action of BPL Live, week in and week out. For more information on the match fixtures and times, please visit http://tv.foxsportsasia.com/
