StubHub, the world’s largest ticket marketplace and global partner of Cerezo Osaka of the JLeague, will be the title sponsor for the “StubHub World Match 2017,” an international friendly Match featuring Cerezo Osaka versus La Liga’s Sevilla FC of Spain on July 17 in Osaka. The exhibition game is part of this summer’s JLeague International Series.
“As StubHub expands globally, our partnerships in the Asia Pacific region are increasingly important, and we are thrilled to extend our relationship with Cerezo Osaka as the title sponsor when it hosts Sevilla FC this summer,” Kohei Okusa, StubHub Japan marketing manager.
The StubHub World Match 2017 will take place at Yanmar Stadium Nagai in Osaka, and details including kick-off time and tickets will be announced in the coming days.
The La Liga team has a long history of winning, dating back 120 years, including five UEFA Cups (most recently in 2016) and five Spanish Cups.
The match marks the first time StubHub as a title sponsor for a JLeague exhibition match.
