“For us, it is a pleasure to start this relationship with an international brand like Midea, as it will help us both to continue to meet our objectives. As CFM RAYADAS, we believe in alliances with serious brands, we believe in win-win alliances. These associations are based on trust. We share values ​​and principles related to our businesses with our business partners. For us, it is a pleasure to welcome a brand like Midea, a company with an international scope and, thus, to be able to begin this work process from this tournament.”

 

Fernando Herrán, General Manager Midea Mexico and Latin America:

“This sponsorship makes a lot of sense for us, we agree with many of the values ​​and principles of the Club and I believe that this must be one of the bases of a successful relationship.

The Monterrey Football Club is a young team and is one of the most successful in Mexican soccer in recent years, both in its men's and women's league; Midea is, among many others, the world’s #1 Air-Treatment Brand [1] and the world’s #1 Small Cooking Appliances Brand [2],but it is also a young brand that is in a solid process of global expansion.

We are going to collaborate in general with the Monterrey Football Club AC, both with its Women's and Men's teams, but we decided to have a stronger participation with the women's team, the Rayadas, because we believe in the empowerment of women, being them who go out to the field of life every day to pursue their dreams.

That is why we launched the hashtag #mujeresalacancha [#womenonthefield] to generate dialogue with all of them and recognize their fight and dedication every day in life and on the field.

Midea offers Major Appliances, Air Conditioning and Small Appliances products of excellent performance and quality to millions of people around the world, seeking with them that our consumers always feel at home and we are sure that this alliance with the Rayadas and the Rayados will allow us to be closer to our consumers in Mexico every day.”
