Budweiser, the King of Beers, has once again, showcased its uniqueness at creating relevant, grand and memorable experiences that bring people together with a new lifestyle football show that made its debut on SuperSport on August 23, 2019.

It highlights their lifestyle, fashion style, how they impact their communities, their influence on fans across the globe and much more.

The weekly show is billed for 8:30 pm every Friday on SuperSport 3 with a repeat broadcast on Saturdays on any of the time slots – 8 am, 10 am and 2 pm across SuperSport Channels. The show promises to be fun as fans’ predictions on social media are revealed giving them the opportunity to see firsthand how they fared and an opportunity to be celebrated on the show when their predictions are successful on the ‘King of the Match’ and ‘Take your Shot’ segments.
According to Franscoe Bouwer, High-End Marketing Manager, International Breweries, “the English Premier League and the Spanish LaLiga have achieved worldwide popularity and acceptability.
