The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) has extended its partnership deal with Uncle Pop for the Women’s World Cup by three more years.

The Chinese leisure food company will continue to be the title sponsor for the 2018 – 2020 editions of the tournament.

ITTF President, Thomas Weikart, said of the agreement: “We are excited to have Uncle Pop continue the partnership for the Women’s World Cup for another three years after a very successful event in Canada last year, organized in cooperation with our partners Table Tennis Canada.”

He added “The partnership is a great fit for both parties, and being a global sport, we could definitely help Uncle Pop on their journey of the internalization of Chinese snack foods. We look forward to working with Uncle Pop to bring the Women’s World Cup to great new heights.”

Yang Xiaoyong, Chairman of Uncle Pop, stated: “I’m proud that Uncle Pop will continue to be the Title Sponsor of ITTF Women’s World Cup for the next three years. In 2017, Uncle Pop was the exclusive title sponsor of the ITTF Women’s World Cup. The competition was fierce and inspiring, and finally, it was Zhu Yuling, a Sichuan-born Chinese table tennis player, who won the title in Canada.”
