Merriment fills the air as ardent football fans gather at the IOI City Mall today. Coming from all walks of life, these fans are here to commemorate the official regional partnership in Malaysia between two larger-than-life icons – DASHING, Malaysia’s leading brand of male grooming and personal care products and Juventus , one of the world’s most respected and revered football clubs. DASHING, a name that stands for fun, brotherhood, contemporary masculinity and active lifestyle, transformed the mall’s centre court into an interactive exciting Football Experience Centre. At this unique “experience centre”, guests were able to put their football skills to the test with games such as Radar Speed Cage, Target Football, Goalkeeper Reaction Test and Electronic Skills Mat.

Sriram adds “In the coming months, DASHING has lined up a number of exciting launches, activations and promotions in partnership with Juventus . Several Malaysian fans will get the golden opportunity to visit the facilities of Juventus first-hand, in a money-can’t buy experience”
Tomas Aricò, Juventus Head of Partnerships, stated: “The announcement of this partnership with DASHING in Malaysia represents for Juventus another significant step into its international activity and confirms Club growing presence in the APAC region further supported by its newly opened branch in Hong Kong, here represented by its Managing Director, Federico Palomba”.
