Fans turned up proudly sporting their team colours and crests to cheer their respective teams and jeer their rivals in good jest in the Reds Showdown live on FOX Sports.
Other exciting activities awaited the fans before the live telecast of the match begin including FOX Sports Football Simulator and FOX Sports Double Dribble.

The top two ‘Best Dressed’ fans also walked home with official Manchester United and Liverpool jerseys and the honour of being the most fashionable fans of the night. Aside from that, prizes were also awarded to the fans who accurately called the results in the ‘Score Prediction’ activity.
The match finally ended 1-0 in Manchester United‘s favour, with Wayne Rooney scoring the winning goal 12 minutes from time.
“We are pleased that our BPL viewing party has turned to be an even bigger success than last year. FOX Sports will continue to bring our viewers the best in sports entertainment and are proud to be able to cater to fans of English football on-screen and off-screen,” said Ms. Penny Tan, Marketing Director of FOX International Channels.
“We at FOX Sports understand that a sense of community makes up as much of the experience as the actual match viewing itself. It’s great to amp up the excitement of a match by sharing the joy with hundreds of fans who are equally emotionally invested in the game. We’re glad that ultimately our viewing party has brought fans of both teams together, proving that rivalries on the field still cannot break the bond of Malaysians,” she added.
