South African soccer team, the Orlando Pirates, have announced LG Electronics as their official Consumer Electronics and Mobile Partner in 2018.
The new deal will mean an upgrade for the hospitality facilities at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto, a suburb of Johannesburg, where the stadium suite areas will be fitted with top of the range LG UHD TVs.
The Club’s training facility, Rand Stadium, will also receive an LG makeover, while the Pirates will introduce the LG Fans Player of The Month category, scheduled to commence at the start of the upcoming 2018/19 Season.
The club’s supporters will be given an opportunity to vote online for their favourite player. The winning player will be awarded with the latest LG V30+ Smartphone, whilst one lucky voter will win themselves an LG / Orlando Pirates hamper.
Joseph Bertrand, brand & sponsorship manager, Orlando Pirates FC, said:
The Orlando Pirates brand is synonymous with innovation and quality. It is through these principles of continuous evolution that this great brand is able to partner up with an equally innovative and quality brand in LG Electronics.
The synergy between these two brands made it a natural progression for us to partner up with LG Electronics, as they perfectly complement the character of the club and our aim of being a world class team.
