Latest: Post-match update
QNET is calling on Independent Representatives across the globe to go football mad for just one day – Saturday, 17 August, 2013.
A long-time lover of professional sport, QNET is getting right behind the upcoming 2013/2014 season of the Barclays Premier League by being an advertising partner in the first round match between Manchester United and Swansea City at Liberty Stadium in Swansea, Wales.
As part of the major advertising deal, QNET will appear in side-line advertising and on TV sets around the world throughout the 90 minute match.
The Barclays Premier League, promoted as the greatest show on Earth, is one of the most widely broadcast and followed sports events in the world.
QNET networkers everywhere are being encouraged to notify their networks and plan to watch the game live so they can be part of the excitement and see QNET on a global stage.
“We want every Representative wherever they are to take part in the sensation that is the English footy. I want to take some of the electrifying atmosphere that beams out of TV sets across the globe during a Premier League match and inject that into the QNET network” says QNET Managing Director JR Mayer.
