Milo Cans Twisted Football returns with new challenges this year and will feature the two winning twisted goalposts -- "King of the Gate" and "Super Ring" -- in live tournaments set to run from April to July. The matches will be held in the central, southern, northern and east coast regions.
The Milo Cans Twisted Football Tournament is open to Malaysian males aged 18 to 35. Participants will need to form teams that comprise one official and a maximum of nine players, and come up with a team name. There is a registration fee of RM200 per team.
Teams can refer to the competition schedules and register online at www.facebook.com/milocans.
The champions of each regional tournament will walk away with RM3,000 cash, a trophy, medals and Milo Cans hampers.
The teams that finish second will each receive RM1,500 cash, medals and hampers while the third place teams will each get RM1,000 cash, medals and hampers.
"Sports is about pushing boundaries and taking things to another level. Milo Cans recognises that Malaysian youth are constantly looking for new opportunities to do just that and the Milo Cans Next Games campaign redefines familiar sports by introducing unique elements to the game to create new and positive sports challenges for Malaysian youth to enjoy," said Teo Heng Keat, head of the liquid drinks business unit of Nestle at the Milo Cans Twisted Football Tournament launch at the PKNS Sports Complex in Kelana Jaya recently.
Present at the event was Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin, vice president of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and former national player Dollah Salleh, who helmed his own Team Dollah in a friendly exhibition match against Team Milo.
Dollah will be providing football tips on the Milo Cans Facebook fanpage and making special appearances at selected roadshow events nationwide.
The championship will kick off in the central region with matches on April 6-7, followed by tournaments in the southern region on May 4-5, northern region on June 1-2, and east coast on July 6-7.
