Reds fans have had their say and voted for the best Premier League game of all time, in a special poll to celebrate the 30th anniversary of LFC’s partnership with Carlsberg – the longest partnership in Premier League and club history.
The poll invited fans to vote on the Reds’ best Premier League match since the association with the Danish brewing company began in 1992, voting for their favourite from a shortlist of 30 games picked out by a panel from across the three decades.
Fans crowned the stunning 5-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford in October 2021 as the runaway winner, tallying nearly 40% of the votes to finish ahead of this season’s 9-0 defeat of AFC Bournemouth, and the 4-3 thriller with Manchester City in January 2018.
Carlsberg and LFC have enjoyed a long-lasting and loyal relationship over the last three decades. The partnership was launched in 1992 which saw Carlsberg become the Principal Partner of the club and take pride of place on the front of the Reds shirt, witnessing some of the club’s most iconic and celebrated moments on the pitch before becoming Official Beer in 2010.
Louise Bach, Global Sponsorship Director, Carlsberg, said: “As a club partner since 1992 we’ve been there for the ups and the downs of every Premier League game the club has been a part of. Now, to find out which is the fans’ favourite after 30 years is incredibly exciting.
“Carlsberg’s involvement with the Club has always been about celebrating the fans and being a part of their journey. So many great games and great goals were celebrated with a Carlsberg and this match is a worthy winner!
“We are extremely proud to be celebrating 30 years as partners of Liverpool FC. This partnership is deeply rooted in a shared set of values and goes way beyond a regular sponsorship.”
Commenting on the milestone anniversary Ben Latty, Commercial Director, Liverpool FC said: “We’re incredibly proud to have such a long-standing Partner in Carlsberg – they are truly woven into the fabric of the club and are a big part of the LFC family.
“Everyone associated with Liverpool FC appreciates this unique and loyal relationship – from front of shirt sponsor to becoming the Club’s Official Beer, the partnership is a testament to the strong link and shared values between both brands.
“We’re excited about the future and we’re very much looking forward to seeing the partnership continue to evolve and grow from strength to strength!”
