Tiger Street Football set to re-ignite Kuala Lumpur

Top street football tournament looks set to heat up action in the capital with the appearance of Tournament Ambassador Fabio Cannavaro come August 17 - 18

Tiger Street Football, the highly anticipated five-a-side football tournament that pits top local teams against the finest international street football teams in a customised oval cage will return to the Old Wing of 1 Utama with an even louder roar on August 17-18. This exciting two-day tournament will also be broadcast on FOX SPORTS. In addition, legendary Italian football superstar and World Cup winning captain Fabio Cannavaro will also be stopping by Malaysia’ sunny shores as one of the highlights of the third  leg of this regional competition.

Dubbed as ‘The Biggest Street Football Festival in Asia’, Tiger Street Football 2013 promises to amplify the action with an improved, one-of-a-kind Tiger Street Football oval cage with no side-lines to take the intense, non-stop game to even greater heights. With two fast-paced six-minute halves per match, you can be sure that participating teams will not be holding back, which will definitely showcase Tiger Street Football’s unique brand of intense and innovative non-stop action.

Further setting itself apart from traditional football competitions, the Malaysian leg of Tiger Street Football 2013 will also be fuelled by an array of engaging side-line activities – ranging from performances by the hippest acts and artists to appearances by the ever-popular Tiger Cage Girls.

Tai See Wai, Marketing Manager for Tiger Beer shares, “With an incredible reception from football fans in Malaysia and across the region over the past two years, we are very excited to bring the latest iteration of the Tiger Street Football experience back here again. By bringing this regional tournament to Kuala Lumpur, we hope to continue reinforcing our commitment towards both the beautiful game and to bringing amazing lifestyle experiences for fans.”

Sherman Tan, Senior Director of Sales from FOX SPORTS Event Management added, “We are extremely excited and delighted to have Tiger as a committed partner of this unique and dynamic tournament.  From its inception since 2011, Tiger Street Football has since gained an immense following across Asia and we hope to continue to share our expertise in delivering a premium sports event that brings Tiger Beer’s edgy brand image to live and excite the audiences in Malaysia.”

The semis and final matches of Tiger Street Football Malaysia will also be telecast live on FOX SPORTS on Sunday, August 18 from 5 to 7pm (local time).
