  • In 2016, 165 global teams traded Red Bull cans to live the experience of their dreams, from jumping out of a plane to getting tickets to a Champions League Game

  • Locally, our Malaysian representatives, the Hibiscus Tigers came in at 27th out of 165 teams and became No. 2 in social media reach in Asia

KUALA LUMPUR – If you are a bold and fearless university student, now is your time to shine – Red Bull Can You Make It? 2018 applications are officially open and awaiting your submissions. This competition is a dash to the finish line, but winning is not the main goal: Teams will have to cover more than 1,000 kilometers/miles in one week before reaching the final destination, using nothing but Red Bull cans as currency. The application has officially open and concludes on Wednesday, February 14, 2018.

On March 6, 2018, the 200 selected teams, chosen from 60 countries around the world from nearly every continent, will depart from one of the five starting points in Europe – Budapest, Madrid, Manchester, Rome and Stockholm. Each team will hand over their cash, credit cards and personal phones and have one week to make it to the final destination, Amsterdam! Instead of cash and credit cards, the students will be exchanging cans of Red Bull for everything they need on the journey – food, a place to sleep, transportation to the next location and other adventures that make the experience legendary. Selected team will create their own path by visiting checkpoints in various European cities, completing as many tasks on the Adventure List as they can, and posting photos and videos that build support among their family, friends and followers. Score is based on the Checkpoint Challenges, Adventure List tasks and Social Following achieved.

Where do you sign up for an adventure your mates have always dreamed of?

Step 1: Gather a team of three friends. You’ll each need to be a current university student. International students residing in Malaysia are now eligible to enter.


Step 2: Then, create a one-minute-long video explaining why your team should be chosen and submit it at no later than February 14, 2018. Be sure to share what makes you smart, clever, travel ready and primed for the adventure of your life.

Step 3: The next step is to earn online votes before getting to the starting line. After the voting period ends, a panel of judges will select a team to be Malaysia’s representative. They will then be invited to fly to one of the five Starting Points in Europe to begin their adventure.

Visit for all the details and submit your entry by February 14, 2018.
