Shanghai Port Football Club has signed a new sponsorship deal with the GD6, an online casino, who have been their official team sponsor since 201. The agreement is for an undisclosed amount and will run until 2023.
The deal includes access to team branding on the front of all official playing kits and assets such as training gear and match day tickets for players and fans alike. “We are very excited to be partnering with such an historic football club,” says Gary Lee, the Media Director of GD6. “We are committed to making our name not only known across Asia but also around the world.”
This is great news for both parties as it means that Shanghai Port F.C can now enjoy increased exposure in China, which is their primary market, while at the same time GD6 is able to promote itself as a reputable online betting site more effectively throughout Asia.
In a statement from Sun X iang, the Deputy General Manager of Shanghai Port F.C, he said “we are pleased to be able to continue our partnership with GD6 as they have shown commitment to supporting us both on and off the field.” In addition to being a member in good standing of FIFA since 2017, Shanghai Port F.C has been competing in China League One Division B since 2005.
GD6 hopes that this association will help them continue to break into the Chinese market as well as cement their position as leaders in Asian betting platforms.
