Unofficially, football must be one of the most played games in Malaysia. I remember one of the first Pendidikan Jasmani classes back in primary school where we started out with stretchings and some light exercises, then were given a football to be played with some make shift goal posts (usually with some water bottles).
Fast forward a couple decades later, I’m still playing football on a weekly basis (futsal mostly though). The only thing that’s changed from those primary school time is my age, and that we have “proper” goal posts now.
This is where MILO Cans come in and asks an interesting question – why not go crazy and design your own goalposts?

To me, this is how you bring back the fun and back to football, with MILO Cans Twisted Football.
OK, so what is this wacky looking thing looming over the “traditional” goalpost and how do you use it?
Well, that would be the twisted goalpost design by you, and if players score a goal in between the traditional goalpost and the green twisted goalpost, the team gets two points instead of the usual one point. That makes the game a lot more interesting isn’t it? Higher risk, higher rewards.
