Sydney FC, Shanghai form partnership

Australian A-League club Sydney FC said on Monday it was entering into a formal relationship with prominent Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.

Sydney FC said it would sign a letter of intent in Sydney on Monday aimed at expanding mutual ties in coaching, sports medicine and sports science, as well as player development through proposed exchanges of players.

A Sydney FC statement said the partnership, which will be formalised later this month, will provide for matches between the two clubs in Shanghai and Sydney.

The clubs also plan to promote sales of each other's merchandise, it said.

Shanghai Shenhua owner and chairman, Zhu Jun, said in the statement that the partnership would provide mutual benefits, both in football terms and commercially.

Sydney FC chairman, Andrew Kemeny, said the partnership was the first step in establishing the brand of Sydney FC within Asia and had the potential to provide his club with numerous benefits.

Shanghai Shenhua finished runners-up in the 2008 Chinese Super League, while Sydney FC are likely to miss out on this season's A-League playoffs with a few matches left to next month's finals.
