Singha Beer is Official Beer of RLWC2013

29 posts in this topic

Singha Beer, the original Thai beer and one of the world’s most celebrated international beer brands, has today been named as the Official Beer of Rugby League World Cup 2013.

 

Singha Beer will be available from both bars, and from roving sellers at many of the 21 venues throughout the 14-nation tournament, which starts with the enticing double-header and opening ceremony at Cardiff on Saturday (April 26).

 

Guntorn Permsup, Singha Beer’s Corporate Strategy Assistant Manager (International Sports Marketing), said:

 

“It is a great honour for Singha to be the Official Beer of Rugby League World Cup 2013. We are delighted for the given opportunity.

 

"Singha is the authentic original Thai beer since 1933 and has been established in the UK and Europe for more than 30 years. We are known for sponsoring Manchester United and Chelsea FC, as their Official Partners, and this tournament will enhance our reputation even further.

 

"We hope that this is just the beginning. Singha is a part of this wonderful event and I wish a great success in the tournament.”

 

RLWC2013 gets underway on Saturday October 26 with the opening ceremony and a spectacular double-header of matches,

England’s clash with Australia (2.30) and Wales v Italy (4.30).

If they are those "roving sellers" carrying beer barrels on their back that were at the Salford City Stadium, they are a complete pain in the a...  blocking your view of the game / passing overfilled plastic glasses over people.

Maybe there should be a cut-off point.

 

No, sorry, too late, we don't your money now.

<p>I was rather hoping that it would be Oakham Ales, so that I could celebrate in style - but this is a great name to have on board. Well done again.</p>

Perhaps they were due to announce it on Tuesday/Wednesday :ph34r: but thought "let's give it a couple of days".

I imagine thats spot on!

 

"We've sent Gareth Hock home for going on the lash and not turning up to training. On a separate note, we can happily announce an official beer of the World Cup!"

 

Probably wouldnt have had the desired impact.

How on earth can anyone complain when we get a decent name sponsor on board and one which is new to our sport. Going to treat myself to a few bottles this weekend. Who knows, if sales go up enough we might even see the Singa Super League. Stop moaning start supping

Won't be available at the French games. Which reminds me, did Catalans ever get shut down by the French government when Hull FC wore a shirt with a beer sponsor on it? Canetman told me it was a matter of when rather than if.

loony juice & gives me a headache. And also the poor people sitting near me.  Great news though, plenty of sponsors on board now. Hopefully some of them might stick with the sport (as long as we dont draw attention to how disfunctional we are!)

I'm not looking to whinge - a great new sponsor on board - fantastic news.

 

I quite like Singha, its the roving sellers though, they just get in the way for viewing the game, particularly if you are on the end of a row of seats.

Let's all charge our glasses and Singha long to the marketing maestro's of the RFL who have delivered such a well known refreshment as the mystery major sponsor to be unveiled prior to the start of the tournament. No doubt a poster of the England side beaming each with pint glass in hand will be released soonish....

Cheers.. hic.

When touring Thailand many years ago, I avoided it like the plague as it had all sorts of nasties in it back then. It is however a bit of a marketing success and a well known brand.

I hope they're paying handsomely!!!

I was in Thailand for a couple of days earlier this year and didn't drink any. I will be giving it a taste during the World Cup though!

Singha is a decent drop. Would drink more of it here in Oz if it weren't for price (only drink when on special) and the fact I make my own home brew these days :). But will definitely go out and buy a 6 pack as a thank you to sponsorship :)
