The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has extended its relationship with ink cartridge specialist Epson for four more years.

Epson has worked alongside the AFC since 1997 and Zhang Jilong, acting president of the AFC, said that he is "quite excited" about the news.

"Epson believed in the potential of Asian football and our alliance started in 1997. Epson’s commitment is a testimony to the great appeal of AFC tournaments as a superior marketing platform," the representative added.

The new deal was sealed by World Sport Group, which is the AFC's marketing and media partner in association with Dentsu, with the endorsement covering all of the confederation's competitions, such as the AFC Asian Cup.

This agreement is not the only sponsorship that Epson has finalised in recent weeks, as the company has confirmed a new three-year contract with Manchester United.

As a result, the printing firm will continue as the club's official office equipment supplier.
