We are humble to announce that we became the official premium quality fan sunglasses partner for China’s oldest soccer club: Beijing Sinobo Guoan F. C.
The hard work paid off as the feedback we got from Beijing was incredible. Yu Yang & Zhang Yuning, the two stars of Beijing FC loved the sunglasses from first sight and immediately agreed to model and promoting them among fans. In terms of popularity, both of them are as popular as Christiano Ronaldo or David Beckham in the Western World.
About Soccer Fans in China
237 million Chinese say that football is their favorite sport and market research suggests that China has a fan potential of about 308 million soccer fans. (How football fans tick in China, Ispo.com, Jun. 2018). Chinese fans love to follow international soccer players and if a particular player changes club e.g. in Europe, the receiving club normally has a spike of Social Media Fans from China as well as the fan gear sales go up. (CNBC, Jan. 2019).
Even though Beijing F.C. has about 20,000 annual pass holders and their home games are attended by an average of 40,0000 people, they want to increase their fan base with exactly that strategy: Bring in soccer players from abroad that have a large following, and produce premium quality fan gear.
We are happy to be part among their selection of gear and are excited that fans are now able to show their Beijing F.C. pride right where everyone sees it: In the middle of their faces. As always with Vision1 sunglasses, the spectacles wearer has a clear see through to never miss a goal.

We are super thrilled to have landed our first deal in China and are honored to work with such a traditional club such as Beijing Sinobo Guoan F.C.. Thanks to our official Chinese Distributor Tiande Warrior (Beijing) Sports Development Co. Ltd. for making this happen. We are looking forward to equip more Chinese soccer enthusiasts with fan sunglasses!
