Indian football invites corporate partnerships

FIFA President Joseph S Blatter has invited Indian corporate houses to invest in indian football. Speaking at a meeting organised by the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), Blatter said: “Sponsors think they are only giving but we want a partnership.

Football offers you an opportunity not only to be identified locally, regionally and nationally but it can bring India to the knowledge of the world.” According to AFCMedia, Asian Football Confederation President Mohamed Bin Hammam said: “Professional football presents a win-win situation for both the club and the corporates.”
