FIFA World Cup
In 2010, Yingli Solar became the first renewable energy and the first Chinese company in history to sponsor the FIFA World Cup™. By joining a list of prestigious sponsors, we answered FIFA’s call to make the world’s most popular sport not only a celebration of the game, but also a sign of respect for the planet that we inhabit.
Part of our global sponsorship of the World Cup™ in South Africa was to utilize Yingli Solar’s expertise in renewable energy by building 20 football centers that provide children in Africa with access to state of the art football stadiums powered by Yingli Solar panels. The program is referred to as “Football for Hope. Energy for Hope” to encapsulate Yingli Solar’s involvement.
In June 2011, we announced the continuation of our partnership with FIFA for the 2014 World Cup™ in Brazil. We are excited to once again join with FIFA in using clean and affordable solar energy to create a more sustainable future.
Stay tuned for more exciting announcements and to learn how you can join us in Brazil.
We are committed to making the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ the greenest FIFA World Cup in history.
