Two more Chi­nese com­pa­nies will join Wanda Group as FIFA part­ners this year, Wang Jian­lin, chair­man of Wanda, said.

Wang made the an­nounce­ment at a news con­fer­ence and did not dis­close de­tails.

Wanda Group has signed a spon­sor­ship con­tract with FIFA, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment by the world soc­cer gov­ern­ing body. The con­tract will grant Wanda the highest level of spon­sor­ship rights, which will be valid for 15 years and in­cludes the next four FIFA World Cup events, it said.

There are eight seats for the top-level FIFA spon­sors glob­ally, with US com­pa­nies dom­i­nat­ing the list.
