Epson Brings World-Class Soccer Entertainment To Local Shores As Platinum Sponsor for Juventus Vs Singapore Match
Singapore, 10 June 2014 – Epson, a world leader in digital imaging and printing solutions announced today its role as the official platinum sponsor for the highly-anticipated friendly match between Italian football giants Juventus Football Club and a Singapore selection team on 16 August 2014. The sponsorship was announced at the Fullerton Hotel today, with World Sport Group and Francesco Calvo, Commercial Director of Juventus, in attendance.
The sponsorship is in line with Epson’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) outreach efforts to give back to the community, promote football through technology, and engage its customers and partners via high-profile platforms.
“Epson has always found ways to give back to the community that has provided us with so much,” says Mr Koichi Endo, Managing Director, Epson Regional. “This match is a chance to fly our local colours and show off the skills of our team as they face off against one of Europe’s best. I am confident that while they will learn much from Juventus Football Club, they will also teach them a few new tricks!”
The sponsorship, which starts with immediate effect, will see Epson support the live match as well as a series of fringe engagement activities with its imaging and printing equipment. Members of the public will stand a chance to win live match tickets and attractive memorabilia through Epson’s promotional activities, to be rolled out between late June and September.
Said Ms Tan May Lin, General Manager, Epson Singapore (Sales Division), “Football is the world’s and Singapore’s most popular sport, and is close to the heart of Epson. We are delighted to help raise the football interest and excitement here in Singapore with the opportunity for one of Europe’s most successful football clubs and our very own Singapore team to face off and glean pointers. With the friendly match and series of engagement activities, we hope more people can appreciate and enjoy the sport through Epson.”
