11 December, 2015 – ROAD FC 027 will take place on 26 December at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center, an 18,000-capacity venue. China’s number one smartphone maker XIAOMI – the third largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world – is the title sponsor for ROAD FC 027 in Shanghai. Korea’s premier sports property ROAD FC will break into the China market with an unprecedented live broadcast on China’s state television broadcaster CCTV to a potential audience of over one billion people.
XIAOMI’s sponsorship of ROAD FC 027 in China comes just as the China – South Korea Free Trade Agreement goes into effect on 20th December. This historic event marks the first time XIAOMI has sponsored a Mixed Martial Arts event, or any sporting event on this dramatic scale. ROAD FC is proud to have such a quickly rising and dominant Chinese company supporting ROAD FC’s global expansion into the surging China market.
Previously, on 18 November, ROAD FC announced a partnership with China’s and Korea’s corporate giants Xiaomi, Tencent, Qihoo360, Baidu, and Kakao to write a new history of Mixed Martial Arts: “New Wave MMA: ROAD FC”. ROAD FC and these five major companies, together with 20 of China’s online game publishers, have created an innovative “fighting games federation” joint venture, called “MMA ACT” which will focus on integrating and developing virtual reality MMA interests
