Aligning with organisations who share a similar philosophy and approach to innovation is important to us and we are excited to see this partnership come to life.”
Brando Brandstaeter, Head of Brand & Communications at Midea’s International Business Division, commented: “Midea is probably one of the biggest companies many consumers around the world have just started to be aware of, and with City’s help we aim to make a great leap forward. Midea is huge, we offer one of the world’s most comprehensive product ranges in the home appliance industry. We have been looking for the right partner for the last 2 years and we are excited to have found the perfect match with Manchester City, an organisation that shares our philosophy in going above and beyond for their fans.
