Last weekend, it was confirmed that VfL were back in Europe, and all this week, the Green-Whites have also been back in China! This was an ideal opportunity for the club to invite partners and friends from the sectors of finance, sport and politics to a grand gala dinner in the team’s hotel, the Crowne Plaza in Foshan. Some 500 guests answered the call, with the Foshan government represented by the deputy mayor Tang Ping. China tour partner FAW-VW, who run an automotive factory in Foshan, of course had a significant presence along with the VfL staff, players and coaches, with everyone enjoying a pleasant evening.
"Proof of our successful activities in China"
Part of the gala dinner included the signing ceremony with VfL Club of Champions partner Linglong Tire, who extended their association with the club. There was also a symbolic presentation of a suitcase from new luggage partner Titan, who have already started supplying the men’s and women’s first teams. "An evening with around 500 guests really shows the incredible interest that there is in VfL Wolfsburg, and furthermore is proof of the many years of successful activities that we’ve had in China," said VfL managing director Michael Meeske at the end of what was a highly successful event.
