New Sponsorship For Cardiff FC

Cardiff City FC has just gotten a new owner who has bought a 36.7% stake. That stake's worth about £6 million.

Of all people, this new owner comes from Malaysia - Chan Tien Ghee. He said to be the business partner of Vincent Tan, one of the richest men in Malaysia, where both are mentioned to have collaborated to buy the Welsh football club.

Both of them became the first Malaysians to own an English football club. This is a rich man's game. Another top Malaysian businessman - Tony Fernandes, the owner of the low cost carrier - Airasia and Lotus F1 team, just missed out on West Ham recently.

Cardiff City will not worry about new sponsorships for the next few years to come. Why is that so?

Vincent Tan's vast business empire in Berjaya Group has a number of businesses that could sponsor Cardiff City and guess how the football jersey will look like next season.


Got the jersey design from another blogger.

Cardiff City is to play Blackpool for a place in the Premier League next season. It will be a good £6 million investment if it wins that ultimate play off finals.
