The fans have spoken and more than 80% of the 11,000 tickets to The Castlewood Group Battle of the Reds 2015 have been snapped up in just four weeks. To meet the strong demand of the event, Masters Football Asia announced today that they are releasing an additional 7,000 tickets to the highly anticipated pop-up derby at the National Stadium on November 14.
In addition to the release of more tickets, ticket holders will also be in for a chance to win an exclusive opportunity to meet their sporting heroes. Starting in August, Masters Football Asia and Castlewood Group will give one ticket holder and a friend the opportunity to meet with both teams when they arrive in Singapore. The draw will be conducted on ONE FM from August and fans are advised to purchase their tickets early so as not to miss out on the opportunities to win their chance to meet their idols. Tickets holders just need to tune in to ONE FM and SMS their details as well as a copy of their tickets when prompted.
“Both Liverpool and Manchester United have a huge fan base in Singapore and I am very pleased with the response so far. The players are very excited and cannot wait to come back to Singapore and revive the rivalry and play to a huge crowd at one of the latest sporting venues in the world,” shared Steve Black, CEO, Masters Football Asia.
Chris Comer, CEO, Castlewood Group, commented, “Continuing our title sponsorship for this year’s Castlewood Group Battle Of The Reds is truly shaping up to be bigger and better than ever. Being able to give back to the local community by letting supporters have the opportunity to get up close and personal with their idols is one of the reasons we originally partnered with Masters Football Asia, so we are elated that we can have even more fans be able to be part of the action in Singapore’s National Stadium.”
More names have also been added to the line-up of both teams confirmed for November. Patrik Berger, Vladimir Smicer, Phil Babb and Bjorn Kvarme will be returning in November for the Liverpool Masters while the Manchester United Masters have bolstered the team with Lee Martin, Keith Gillespie, Quinton Fortune and Louis Saha. More names will be announced closer to date.
