FIFA goes green with Yingli Green Energy

It started as mere mutterings from Asia Sponsorship News after learning the identity of the new global sponsor from invitations sent to the local media, but now FIFA have confirmed that Yingli Green Energy will be their global sponsor for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Not only is Yingli Green Energy the first Chinese company to sign a global sponsorship deal with FIFA, they are also the first renewable energy company to sponsor the world cup. And as one of China’s biggest solar panel and solar energy product manufacturers, this company is well positioned to answer FIFA’s call to make the world’s most popular sport not only a celebration of the game but also a sign of respect for the planet that we inhabit.
