Indian elite soccer side Bengaluru FC have announced a partnership with Acer for the 2017/18 season.

The Taiwanese electronics company will be the Indian Super League (ISL) outfit’s official technology partner.

Acer will also collaborate with Bengaluru to host social activities at the team’s Sree Kanteerava Stadium.

“We are excited to flag off our first association with Bengaluru FC in the fourth season of ISL,” said Chandrahas Panigrahi, chief marketing officer and head of business at Acer India. “Through this tie-up, we want to show our support to the spirit of football and look forward to connect with youngsters. The fourth season of this tournament has created an extreme enthusiasm in the country and Acer is very pleased to be a part of this season by associating with one of the most vibrant ISL teams - Bengaluru FC.”

“We are very delighted to have Acer, a global technology giant, on board as technology partners,” added Mustafa Ghouse, chief operating officer of Bengaluru FC. “I believe that this association is going to prove beneficial for both of us with their range of technologically advanced products. Acer’s vision as a brand aligns with ours as a club and we are glad to have them on board for what we are hoping will be a successful Indian Super League campaign.”

Bengaluru are top of the Indian Super League in 2017/18 after winning two of their opening three games. They lost 4-3 away to FC Goa on 30th November, and face NorthEast United on Wednesday.
