At Gala Avenue, a landmark of Shanghai's Lujiazui area, the Tsingtao Beer viewing party for the 2019 AFC Champions League gathered 400 football fans to cheer for the Shanghai SIPG Football Club. Shanghai SIPG sealed a quarter-final berth by beating South Korea's Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors Football Club with a 5-3 penalty shootout win.
From April to May when the AFC Champions League group stage was played, Tsingtao Beer organized viewing parties in Jinan, Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shanghai, bringing football fans an audio-visual feast celebrating the sport.
Apart from a mini show, each party featured performances from football babies, live bands and DJs, which pushed each party to an exciting climax.
In addition, Tsingtao Beer brought the studio of PP Sports, China's leader in digital sports media, to the party, inviting famous football commentators such as Liu Huan, He Yu, Lou Yichen, and Liu Yue to analyze the football players, coaches, and lineup live.
"I used to listen to the commentaries on TV or computer. The party offers me a chance to get close to the football commentators and it will be the most memorable moment for me," said one of the football fans.
Every attendee was also provided with a memorial special edition Tsingtao Beer can engraved with Tsingtao Beer AFC Champions League, unlimited drinks of Tsingtao Beer, a football jersey, as well as color painting services. The party also invited multiple football players and famous retired soccer stars to comment on the match, as well as take photos with the fans, adding more excitement to the festive atmosphere.
