Five Manchester City online stores launched in Asia

English Premier League club Manchester City has partnered with EZ Shopnet to launch five online stores serving Asian fans.

Manchester City online stores will be launched for customers in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia.

As the club’s new online retail partner for Asia Pacific, Hong Kong-based EZ Shopnet will help to meet fast growing demand across Asia Pacific for official Club merchandise. Each of the five stores operates in local languages and currencies, with local customer support enabling the club to get official merchandise to its fans quickly and cost effectively.

Manchester City is following the lead of rivals Manchester United and Chelsea in cashing in on the growing fan base for EPL across broader Asia. It recently opened a regional management office in Singapore.


Omar Berrada, group commercial director for City Football Marketing, which brokers Manchester City’s commercial partnerships and manages all of its retail and licensing, said that through EZ Shopnet, the club can get even closer to its growing fan base across Asia Pacific and deliver them a better and quicker service.

“We have seen an enormous growth in our followers in the region and we are extremely happy that they will have easier access to official City kits and our wide range of merchandise than ever before.”
