During the last year the team at the Dutch company COPA Football have been super busy with all sorts of projects to bring their brand closer to their fans through product design, social media and sponsorships. First up was to help bring the love of football to pint size cutie pies. Imagine a little Ronaldo or De Rossi fan running around sporting one of these “My First Football Shirts“.
Another great news from COPA is their involvement with the Tibetan football team and the Tibetan National Sports Association. The TNSA is trying to develop the love for sports in general with in the Tibetan community and the support from COPA would help with this mission especially when it comes to football. The Tibetan national football team is going to be sporting COPA kits for the next 2 years as a result of this sponsorship.
The story behind this young team is very interesting. Being known as “The Forbidden Team“, thanks to the China/Tibet situation, they were formed in 2001 in India. All members are exiled Tibetans who have come together all thanks to the dreams of one man, Michael Nybrandt from Denmark and TNSA’s Kasur Jetsun Pema, younger sister of H.H. the Dalai Lama.
This is such a great way to bring the love of sports and the attention required to build sports teams, from funding to education and training, to small countries and that’s why COPA is involved with this great cause and all for the love of football!
