Azkals, Global FC forge stronger ties with KIA
THE PHILIPPINE men’s national team and United Football League powerhouse Global FC have renewed their partnership with KIA Motors, which will play a key role in supporting the two teams in their campaigns.
The Azkals are vying in the AFC Challenge Cup in May, and KIA’s exclusive country distributor, Columbian Autocar Corp., is looking forward to another year of supporting the team.
Global, which is seeing action in the Singapore Cup, UFL and Smart Club Championship, will also have KIA as its major sponsor and transportation provider.
“The Azkals represent determination, excellence and inspiration and KIA is very proud to stand behind this team in elevating these positive values,” said CAC vice president for marketing Hernando Gañac Jr.
Under the agreement, the Azkals will team up with CAC and KIA in conducting activities to promote football, including a clinic during the KIA Cup.
Dan Palami signed the deal in behalf of the Azkals and Global.
Among the Azkals involved in the previous KIA Cup clinic were skipper Chieffy Caligdong, James and Phil Younghusband, Misagh Bahadoran, Carlie de Murga and OJ Porteria. Cedelf P. Tupas
