Midea Enlists Fans to Select the Ultimate AFF All Star Team

The Home Appliances giant has introduced an online campaign for fans to assemble their all-star team in ASEAN football history and win prizes

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 9 November 2021 - Midea, one of the world's leading home appliances producers and main sponsors of the upcoming ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Championship – also known as the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 – launched an interactive online campaign to engage football fans around the world ahead of their 11.11 shopping carnival.  

  The campaign, known as #HomeOfTheBest11, put the power in fans' hands as they determine the best 11 players in ASEAN football history. Participants can select the best player for each position they think most people would vote for on the official AFF Suzuki Cup website. The final #Best11 All Star team will be unveiled on November 11 at 11:11 am Singapore time. Consumers across ASEAN countries will also have the chance to preview the exciting 11.11 deals on local Midea e-commerce outlets and plan their buys. Fans with the most correct picks will stand the chance to win prizes provided by Midea and AFF, with a total of 88 winners across Southeast Asia. The prizes range from exclusive signed AFF merchandise to Midea home appliances.   "We are thrilled to be at the center of all the enthusiasm around the AFF Suzuki Cup and honored to be able to bring fans around the region together despite the distance. We used 11 Midea star appliances to represent each position within the #Best11 All Star team, and to highlight their individual strengths and characteristics. We look forward to finding out who fans think are the best AFF players of all time," said Jackie Huang, General Manager of Midea International Business Asia & Pacific Region.   To rally fans' support and participation in the campaign, three legendary AFF players – including forward Safee Sali from Malayasia, midfielder Charyl Chappuis from Thailand, and former Indonesian team captain Ponaryo Astaman – released videos on both Midea's and AFF's Facebook pages and urged people to make their best 11 picks before 11.11.   Charyl Chappuis, professional football player for the Thailand national team, shared, "I am excited about this one-of-a-kind opportunity for fans around the world to band together and share their common passion for ASEAN football."   The #HomeOfTheBest11 campaign began on November 1 at 11:11 am and ends on November 11 at 11:11 am Singapore time. Fans are invited to check out the promotional videos on Midea's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MideaGlobal/, and take part in the voting by visiting the AFF Suzuki Cup website at www.affsuzukicup.com/2020/fan-zone/midea-home-of-the-best-11.
