period, the resort will be the venue for a star-studded mountaintop football
pitch that will allow guests to channel their inner Lionel Messi, Neymar and
Mohamed Salah. A trio of English footballing legends will also grace this
hallowed ground, bookending a celebration of the Beautiful Game and the quest
to be named as the best footballing team in the world.
Michael Owen, the former national team striker for England will be met and
greeted fans for an autograph session at the Times Square stage from 1.15pm,
before donning his jersey and cleats for a football clinic at 4.45pm at the
Football Village. Owen, who is also a skilled football commentator, then joined
eager fans as they counted down to the first football match – Russia vs. Saudi
Arabia – at the Opening Match Viewing Party, hosted at the Genting
International Showroom (GISR). During his first visit to Resorts World Genting,
the football legend said, "Although I've visited Malaysia many times
before, this is my first time to Resorts World Genting. I'm very excited to be
here at this resort where there's of course great mountain views, hotels, food
and attractions all under one roof and I'm especially looking forward to
sampling the local dishes which I know will be amazing."
Michael Owen with Roger Ong, Assistant Vice President of Promotions & Entertainment at Resorts World Genting
also made predictions for the ongoing football tournament saying,"My
fondest memories of this tournament were definitely from 1998 where I debuted
at these championships as an 18-year old where I didn't have much expectations
playing alongside great players that were in my team but then went on to score
the goal against Argentina. This time around, I think Brazil might take the
trophy and Germany have always been favourites but I also think England's
national team might have a shot for the finals if we have a good start to
ultimately become the dark horses. I think we definitely have the potential for
some great goals in us."
Since a day
would not be enough for Owen to meet his legion of adoring Malaysian fans, he
will be making additional Meet the Fan appearances on 15 June at the Genting
Club and on 16 June at Time Square Stage from 6.00pm that includes an autograph
session and also at Cloud 9 from 8.00pm.
