French professional football club Pau FC has announced its partnership with Mansion Sports as a premium partner beginning September 2022.
The partnership deal will include prominent placements of the Mansion Sports logo on the PAU FC players’ jersey and training kit and Mansion Sports branding at the stadium grandstand.
In return, Pau FC will be promoted in the Asian markets where Mansion Sports have a presence. A club tour in Vietnam is lined up for next year.
General Manager of Mansion Sports Entertainment, Sunil Jamthani, shared his delight in having Pau FC become part of the growing family that is Mansion Sports:
“We are happy to have a football club rich in history such as Pau FC to become part of the Mansion Sports family. We promise to deliver only the best to our esteemed partners.”
Pau Football Club owner Bernard Laporte-Fray is honored by this new partnership, “We are delighted to realize today a new step in our international development through the partnership with Mansion Sports. This new cooperation opens the club’s doors to a new territory with great potential, which augurs rich exchanges both in human and structural terms.”
Nguyễn Quang Hải was signed by Pau FC this summer for the 2022-23 season. This marks the first time a football player from Vietnam played for a French football club.
He made his debut on July 31 in a match against En Avant Guingamp.
Pau FC currently sees action at Ligue 2, the second level of French football. Starting out as Bleuets de Notre-Dame de Pau in 1920, they split up to form Football Club de Pau in 1959.
In 1995, the club went under administration and were relegated to the fourth tier. Bernard Laporte-Fray became owner and reformed it as Pau Football Club. The club has gradually climbed the French football hierarchy since, getting promoted to Ligue 2 in 2020.

ABOUT Pau Football Club (Pau FC)
Founded in 1995, Pau FC came out of the former Football Club de Pau, which was formed in 1959 to separate itself from Bleuets de Notre-Dame de Pau.
Managed by Didier Tholot, Pau FC plays its home games at the Nouste Camp. It was the smallest ground in the French second division, with a capacity of just more than 4,000. Aside from the Nouste Camp, they have previously made Stade du Hameau their home for almost three decades, which they have shared with Rugby Union club Section Paloise.
