Cardiff City FC, Liverpool FC and football fans alike gathered for an evening of fun, food and football at U Mobile’s ‘#thebestfree Tengok Bola Viewing Party’ held at The Boulevard, Berjaya Times Square, last Saturday. U Mobile is the official telco partner for Cardiff City FC and the running ‘Road to Cardiff’ campaign gives U Mobile customers a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience to watch a Barclays Premier League football match live in Cardiff City.

Eleazar Joey Jin Shian from Labuan and Ho Yuan Hong from Penang were lucky winners of the ‘Road to Cardiff 3’ contest where they took a trip for two to watch the Cardiff City FC vs Liverpool FC in the UK. The latest campaign ran from 17 January till 6 March 2014, open to postpaid, prepaid and broadband customers.


Meanwhile at the live viewing party at The Boulevard, avid football fans gathered for a complimentary dinner and viewing. The match-up between bottom-rung Cardiff City FC versus title-contenders Liverpool FC was highly entertaining, with the minnows leading twice in the first half. Despite a gallant fight, Cardiff could not stop the onslaught of goals from on-form Liverpool after, with the game ending at 6-3 at the final whistle.

To get invites to the viewing party, U Mobile customers and fans only need to post a picture of themselves with an orange item on Instagram and tag @myumobile, two friends and with the hashtags #TheBestFree #TheBestUnlimited and #TheBestSurprises.

Some attractive prizes that were won included free 3D2N stay at Berjaya Tioman Resort, Sony Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, Samsung GALAXY Tab 3 7.0 and signed official football merchandise.

The next instalment of ‘Road to Cardiff’ kicked off on 17 March 2014 and will continue till 20 April 2014. Customers merely need to top up RM30 or more in order to participate. The contest is open to prepaid customers only and the winner will get to watch the Cardiff City FC vs Chelsea FC match live in Cardiff City, in May 2014.
