Official release from the Asian Football Confederation

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is delighted to announce Epson has extended its commercial engagement with Asian football for a further four years.

Epson, which has worked with the AFC since 1997, has extended its commercial relationship with Asian football's governing body through the AFC National Programme until 2016.

"I couldn't be more excited about the extension of AFC's sponsorship agreement with Epson," said Zhang Jilong, Acting President of the AFC.

"Epson believed in the potential of Asian football and our alliance started in 1997. Epson's commitment is a testimony to the great appeal of AFC tournaments as a superior marketing platform.

"Asian football has provided great value in recent years to its sponsors and I can assure Epson that AFC's events will transport your brand throughout Asia and help in connecting with your customers.

"The advances currently being seen could not have been achieved without the support of our commercial partners and we hope that our relationship with Epson will allow football in our continent to continue to flourish."
