Barclays Premier League Champions, Manchester City, have announced a new club partnership with QNet.
The three year partnership announced at a press conference at the Etihad Stadium alongside Jesus Navas, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic, will see the award winning wellness and lifestyle company become the Club’s Official Direct Selling Partner.
Founded in 1998, with 25 offices across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, QNET is one of the Asia’s leading directing selling companies.
As part of the deal, QNET will have access to a series of Manchester City money-can’t buy experiences such as player meet and greets which they can use as incentives for high performing Independent Representatives or rewards for loyal customers.
Specialising in a variety of lifestyle enhancing products and services, ranging from health and nutrition, personal care, education and home care, QNET are also heavily involved in philanthropic work internationally.
Commenting on the partnership, Tom Glick, Chief Business Officer for Manchester City, said: "QNET’s grass roots philosophy of empowering ordinary people around the world to start their own business and succeed has been the key to their rapid growth, which now extends to over 100 countries worldwide.
"We are delighted to be working with QNET in a partnership that presents both parties with exciting opportunities to collaborate through football across the world and continues our exciting growth across Asia."
QNET is the flagship international direct selling subsidiary of the QI Group of Companies helmed by Malaysian entrepreneur, Vijay Eswaran, who added: "We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Manchester City.
"Like QNET City started from humble beginnings as a community club, and rose to prominence after years of hard work and effort.
"City’s focus on giving back to the community through football mirrors our own philosophy of RYTHM (Raise Yourself To Help Mankind), through which we seek to empower people to better their lives and help others do the same.
"We believe that people are at their strongest when they work as a group, just as in football. To win, we assemble the best players, train very hard, formulate specific strategies, outdo our opponents and continuously improve our skills and knowledge of the game.
"We look forward to working with the Club to continue our engagement with communities around the world and also to improving the standard of football in Asia, through coaching clinics and training opportunities."
In addition to Manchester City, QNET had embarked on several sports sponsorship in the past, the major one being its partnership with the Marussia Formula One Team.
