Panasonic has come into an agreement with South China Football Team to become their principal sponsor for the 2009/10 season.
Panasonic has been a keen supporter of sports activities, especially football, both locally and internationally. The brand is currently the sponsor of Osaka Gamba in Japan.
Under the leadership of Chairman Steven Lo, South China Football Team continues to excel in the football field and gains lots of attention and exposure. Their commitment in continuous growth and success coincides perfectly with Panasonic's brand philosophy.
South China Football Team has gained encouraging results recently. On September 6, the Caroliners beat newly promoted Tai Chung in the First Division league opener by 4-0; on September 2, they humbled Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to win the Panasonic Invitation Cup and give their season a huge boost.
South China's goal in the new season is to continue with their local achievements and to extend the record in the international realm. The team is determined to gain recognition in Asia as well as other parts of the world.
Panasonic has plans to cooperate with South China in numerous aspects to achieve a win-win partnership. Key South China players including Man Pei-tak, Chan Siu-ki, Li Haiqiang and the newly crowned Hong Kong Footballer of the Year Lee Wai-lim will be featured in Panasonic's upcoming events and promotions.
