"With the Trophy Tour we want to show football fans in Thailand even more of what is at the heart of our competition"
- Richard Scudamore
The free interactive event gives fans that may never get the opportunity to visit a Barclays Premier League match the chance to discover more about the League, the players and the clubs through various behind-the-scenes experiences.
Fans will be able to sense what it feels like to sit in a Barclays Premier League ground, view the Premier League Trophy and learn about its history, as well as the chance to get a picture of themselves lifting the famous trophy with the help of green screen technology.
There are also numerous interactive exhibits in the 20 club pods, including giving supporters the chance to find out if they run faster than Theo Walcott, punch a corner flag like Tim Cahill and hear the noise of the loudest fans in the League.
Premier League Chief Executive Richard Scudamore, said: "We are excited about joining Barclays in bringing the Trophy Tour to Thailand for the first time.
"With the Trophy Tour we want to show football fans in Thailand even more of what is at the heart of our competition: the Trophy itself, as that is what every player and manager competes to get their hands on; the fantastic football as played by our 20 clubs, because that is what excites hundreds of millions week-in week-out; and the history and tradition of English football, as that is what helps create the huge interest in the competition."
The Barclays Premier League Trophy Tour will visit Singapore and Kuala Lumpur during March and April before continuing to the United States of America and Africa later in 2012.
The Barclays Premier League is the most popular continuous global sporting event, with every match-day broadcast to more than 640m households in 212 countries and territories.
