Shandong Luneng partners with Didi Chuxing

Chinese Super League (CSL) club Shandong Luneng have announced a partnership with ride-sharing service Didi Chuxing.

The ride-hailing business is looking to support the club in its upcoming home matches in the CSL and the Chinese FA Cup for 2017. The partnership is also expected to provide peripheral products and riding discounts for Luneng fans during the games.

Shandong Luneng was valued as the fifth most valuable team in China according to Forbes in 2015, and are currently fifth in the CSL, having lost only five of the 23 games they have played so far this season. The side most recently held Jiangsu Suning FC to a 0-0 stalemate, and will be looking for a win when they host Yanbian Fude on 16th September.
