Anthony Bullard was selected as the winner of Budweiser’s global promotion, and as the winner from the Bahamas, joined other winners from around the world for a week of football, fellowship and of course, beer, at the FIFA World Cup in Moscow, Russia.
Over 44,000 rowdy fans, mostly a sea of yellow-clad Brazilian enthusiasts, watched with eager anticipation at every opportunity for their star forward Neymar Jr and his efforts to score a goal.
For much of the evening, the Brazilian fan base overpowered the cheers of pockets of Serbian supporters from the opening kick.
Guests were able to taste dishes from the menu which was specially designed for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and try the SPA programmes. The Bud Loft also hosted a number of parties on the 12th floor of the hotel included a special space called Bud Studios, arranged for bloggers for content editing and promotion.
Bullard was accompanied by his wife, Dolores, on the trip to Moscow.
“I was in denial at first but everyone started sending me the newspaper clipping saying he had won. My mind started shifting to preparation right after that,” she said, “Every night we saw the game in a different place and the organizers had everything running like clockwork. We really felt privileged and it was an unbelievable experience.”
