Southampton Football Club and LD Sports today held a press conference in Macau to introduce their partnership to the Chinese media.

Representatives from the club, including majority shareholder and Chairman Mr Gao, Vice Chair Nelly Gao, Chief Executive Martin Semmens and Commercial Director David Thomas, were joined by Saints legends Rickie Lambert and Matt Le Tissier, alongside officials from LD Sports.

The brand new sports content, marketing and entertainment platform, which has now launched for the Chinese market, became Main Club Sponsor this summer, in what represents the biggest sponsorship deal in Southampton’s history.
