Huawei to launch 5-a-side competition at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium
Huawei has strengthened its ties to Arsenal Football Club by announcing the inaugural Huawei Cup to take place at the Emirates Stadium.
The 5-a-side competition will be played out by customers, staff, press and partners on 21 May. Ex-Arsenal and England midfielder Ray Parlour will present the trophy to the winning team while posing for pictures during the contest.
Huawei UK executive vice-president Mark Mitchinson said: ‘Huawei is both proud and delighted to announce ‘The Huawei Cup’. This annual event is a money can’t buy experience that gives our most valued customers and partners the unique opportunity to play the beautiful game in a competitive yet friendly environment at one of the most impressive stadiums in the world. We look forward to welcoming our VIP guests to what promises to be an experience of a lifetime.’
In January the Chinese manufacturer signed a sponsorship deal with the Barclays Premier League team. The deal lasts until the end of the 2015/16 season.
