Tiger Street Football is returning to Asia for the fourth edition. 

It is back with an innovative, world-first new format that has brought out the most creative, agile and instinctive style of play for street football across the region.

The tournament kicked off in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 9 August, followed by Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia on 23 August, and finally the Grand Finals in Singapore on 6 September 2014 with the two time UEFA Champions League winner, Deco.

Let's find out more at the press meet with the official Tournament Ambassador, Deco, and some of Portugal’s most decorated players.

The event was held at Singapore Sports Hub.
This was my first time there.

The press meet started off with an opening speech by Mr Rene de Monchy, Head of Marketing, Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore.

Rene shared with us that Tiger Street Football is a great platform for the brand to bring unique and enjoyable experiences to the fans. The highlights in undoubtedly the all-star exhibition match between the region’s best street footballers and five of Portugal’s finest players. To top that off, being able to give a lucky fan the once in a lifetime opportunity to play as the sixth man in Team Deco.

Guess who is sitting in front of me?

They are Nuno Gomes and Paulo Ferreira.
