Tiger Street Football brings nonstop action to Mongolia and Asia

By K.Tugchin

Tiger Street Football 2013 continues to deliver exciting weekends filled with street football action into cities across Asia. The regional street football tournament brings together top local and international teams to compete for the chance to win cash prizes and the opportunity to represent their country at the Tiger Street Football Grand Finals in November in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and win the grand prize of 30,000 USD.

Asawin Rojmethatawee, the Regional Activation and Digital Manager of Tiger Beer, shared, “Building on the tremendous reception from the previous legs in Cambodia, Australia, and Malaysia, we are excited to bring the unique Tiger Street Football experience including spectacular displays of inventive, non-stop football action next to Mongolia, China, Singapore, and Vietnam. Through Tiger Street Football, we aim to strengthen our commitment towards developing the game across the region and bringing an unrivalled lifestyle experience to fans and spectators on a whole new level.”

The tournament, led by the Official Ambassador of the sport and Italian football legend, Fabio Cannavaro, concluded the Malaysia leg over the weekend of August 17 and 18. The Old Wing Carpark at 1 Utama in Kuala Lumpur was transformed into an adrenaline-filled football cage specially built for 32 top local teams to battle it out to win the top honor. The winning team, Fisherman’s Friend Team D, emerged after a goal-packed finals match to win 3,000 USD and the title of Tiger Street Football Local Champion.

The action in Kuala Lumpur certainly ramped up a notch on the second day when the top four local teams from Day 1 were joined by a selection of four specially invited street football teams from Holland, UK, Singapore, and Thailand for the Tiger Street Football International Tournament finals. The Malaysian team showcased fluid attacking plays in front of their ardent local supporters to record a stunning 3-2 victory over their English opposition, thus, becoming the Tiger Street Football International Champions and bagging a 5,000-USD cash prize.

Tiger Street Football in Malaysia was the 3rd leg of the regional football tournament, which already brought the action to Phnom Penh, Cambodia in March and Sydney, Australia in May 2013. The tournament tour will be moving on to China, Mongolia, and Singapore before culminating in an epic grand finale with the local champions competing in the Tiger Street Football Tournament in Ho Chi Minh from November 9 to 10, 2013.

Besides the on-court football action, fans can look forward to a number of entertaining urban acts including a BMX showcase, dances by the Tiger Cage Girls, and an edgy graffiti installation. Fabio Cannavaro will be making appearances to give football fans the opportunity to meet and interact with the World Cup-winning, former FIFA World Player of the Year in person. Cannavaro consistently gives fans an unbeatable experience by participating in an exhibition match where fans can admire his slick moves on the pitch.
