Chengdu Airline has been unveiled as the title sponsor of the International Table Tennis Federation’s (ITTF) Men’s World Cup, which takes place in the Chinese city from November 29 to December 1.

The agreement grants Chengdu Airline category exclusivity for the airline service during the tournament, which will be contested by 20 players.

This year will mark the first time that the Men’s World Cup has been held in Chengdu, although the city did recently host the Women’s World Cup.

Chengdu Airline also served as an official sponsor of the 2018 Women’s World Cup.

Chinese food products manufacturer Uncle Pop is the current title sponsor of the Women’s World Cup under an agreement that expires after the 2020 edition.
