The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) confirms that Sinopec Lubricant Company is a Major Sponsor of the upcoming Dishang 2020 ITTF Men’s World Cup, scheduled for 13 – 15 November 2020.
The largest high-tier lubricant manufacturer and marketer in China, Sinopec Lubricant Company has widely applied its leading lubrication technology for aerospace in high-end equipment manufacturing, aviation, high-speed railway, large ships, construction machinery and passenger vehicles.
The company is a natural fit as Major Sponsor of the Dishang 2020 ITTF Men’s World Cup, having established an extensive and in-depth association with the sports industry at large. An Official Sponsor at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and the forthcoming Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games, Sinopec Lubricant Company’s support for sport is unequalled by its competitors in the lubricant industry.
The ITTF Men’s World Cup traditionally sits amongst the most prestigious annual international table tennis events, featuring many of the sport’s best players from all parts of the world and counting towards the Grand Slam (Olympic Games, World Championships, World Cups).
Staged at the newly opened Weihai Nanhai Olympic Center in Weihai, China, the Dishang 2020 ITTF Men’s World Cup will see 21 of the biggest names in table tennis battle it out for major honours. The event will see the return of international men’s table tennis action as part of the #RESTART series, following months of inactivity due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is a great honour for Sinopec Lubricant Company to reach this agreement with the ITTF to become the Major Sponsor of the 2020 ITTF Men’s World Cup. Our company has built a close and dynamic association with the sports industry over the years and now we are delighted to be partnering with table tennis, which has the reputation of being our “national game” in China. I hope that our role as Major Sponsor will resonate with sports fans and bring more attention and support for table tennis.” – Sinopec Lubricant Company
“Table tennis enjoys a strong audience base in China, and China plays a pivotal role in popularising and promoting table tennis around the world. We have seen an increasing number of Chinese leading enterprises in various fields supporting table tennis, which demonstrates just how bright the future is for our sport, and we are delighted to have Sinopec Lubricant Company on board for the 2020 ITTF Men’s World Cup. Bonded by the table tennis culture of fair play and sportsmanship, we share a common philosophy of continuous improvement and excellence.” – Xu Yi, ITTF Head of Sponsorship (China)
