There’s no contest: football is the world’s favorite sport. And the only people who love football as much – or sometimes even more – than the players are the fans. Wouldn’t it be great if there was somewhere MUFC fans in Singapore could connect with the community and experience global football culture from anywhere and everywhere?
Well, there’s a cool club for that now. The leading scotch label Chivas Regal Singapore created Regal F.C., a 3D game-like clubhouse where fans can explore and play, which launched late last year. A membership to the clubhouse unlocks exclusive members-only promotions, priority access to events, competitions, and prizes, shopping perks, and sweet opportunities – like, say, the chance at watching Manchester United play Liverpool in a friendly pre-season match. Club memberships are free and you can register here.
We’ve had a firsthand look at just how awesome it can be to be a part of Regal F.C. Coconuts’ own Rayner Lim, along with four lucky Regal F.C. members traveled from Singapore to the epic “Red War” last month to see Manchester United face off against Liverpool at Thailand’s Rajamangala Stadium for the Bangkok Century Cup 2022. From a meet and greet with players to watching the training and match and, of course, an after party, it’s clear Regal F.C. knows how to keep the spirit of the game alive and thriving. See for yourself here:
Regal F.C. not only celebrates the love for the game, but is also all about connecting with homegrown artists and forward-thinkers. Whether it’s ballers or players, designers or artists, makers or thinkers, the club was founded on the belief that “We rise together.”
To back up this bold mission statement is the Regal F.C. Fam, the club’s first creative council, comprised of five folks from Singapore’s creative scene: Dharni (beatboxer), Josiah Chua (fashion creative), Jun Tan (former footballer and founder of Junpiter Futbol), See Min Ng (body art artist), and YK (street photographer). Council members have put out Regal F.C. related work, including a beatboxing video class by Dharni, a Regal F.C. jersey jacket reconstructed from Chivas T-shirts and accessories by Chua, an interview series of three local footballers by Tan, Regal make-up art by Ng, and a mini photo series by YK.
“Regal F.C. was created from our love for football and for the people who love it passionately. Modern football culture goes beyond the pitch to intersect with music, gaming, fashion, art, and beyond — and Regal F.C. is a celebration of these cultural tenets,” says Joni Na, Brand Manager at Chivas Regal, Pernod Ricard Singapore.
“It brings together a community of entrepreneurs, rising stars and cultural tastemakers in a blend of creative expressions. We’re excited to bring a new experience to the Chivas community through a social club like Regal F.C.,” he added.
