The 2005 Mastercard Beijing Community Cup
Thanks to Mastercard, the multinational payment solutions giant, this year's event promises to build on the success of previous years and raise more funds for the charities concerned, while providing a day-out to remember for the players, fans and media inside the Workers' Stadium, the home of Chinese football.
The MasterCard brand is recognised globally for its support of the game with an unprecedented commitment to five of football's most prestigious events.
In 2003, MasterCard extended alliances with the 2006 FIFA World Cup™, the 2004 UEFA European Football Championship™, UEFA Champions League and CONMEBOL Copa America. In addition, MasterCard is a sponsor of Manchester United's 2005 Asian tour, which will bring world class football to Asian fans in Beijing, Hong Kong and Japan.
Whilst MasterCard is synonymous with the highest echelons of the game, its support also extends all the way to the sport's grass roots as shown by its sponsorship of events such as the 2005 MasterCard Beijing Community Cup. As well as the raising of vital funds to donate to worthy causes, Mastercard's support of the 2005 Mastercard Beijing Community Cup and of Manchester United's Asian tour also shows Mastercard's desire to work hand-in-hand with local partners to bring both sides of the game closer and deliver priceless football memories to Chinese fans.
