Carlsberg’s sponsorship of the Maybank Malaysian Open 2012 is yet another superb avenue for the most preferred beer brand in Malaysia to support the development of Malaysian golf at the country’s most prestigious golf tournament that offers an increased prize fund of USD 2.5 million. Carlsberg will tee-off a number of engaging consumer promotions and exciting activities that promise unique experience to consumers.
Carlsberg has over the years strengthened its market leader position and cultivated an ardent consumer base by reaching out to the golfing fraternity through the Malaysian Golf Open, the region’s leading national open as well as via the Carlsberg Golf Classic, the nation’s longest running amateur golf tournament. Such endeavours have today solidified Carlsberg’s market leadership in the golf segment and the choice of high-end and exclusive golf clubs around the country.
“Carlsberg is committed to support the development of golf in this country, while answering the national call to promote Malaysia as a sports-tourism destination. Carlsberg’s sponsorship of the MMO began in 2001 and continues to 2015. It has been a strategic partnership as being the nation’s most preferred beer brand Carlsberg is proud to be presented as the exclusive beer at the country’s most prestigious golf tournament”, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia Soren Ravn shared.
Carlsberg and the Malaysian Open go back to 2001 when the brand was presented as the title sponsor for five years until 2005. Carlsberg continued its sponsorship as main sponsor in the following years and last year, the brand signed up another five-year sponsorship of the Maybank Malaysian Open, from 2011 to 2015. Carlsberg is probably the longest standing sponsor of the national open.
Carlsberg consumers will be rewarded with entrance tickets to the MMO when they take part in Carlsberg promotions at participating outlets and golf clubs around the country. In the Klang Valley, customers can get a four-day season pass to the tournament or a Carlsberg golf umbrella for every purchase of three jugs (while stocks last).
