Hisense has cemented its place as a global leader in technology for the home in the last two decades, which is the result of a long-term commitment it has shown to some of the world’s most loved sporting properties, which include the FIFA World Cup 2022™, as well as its newly announced sponsorship to the UEFA EURO 2024™.

By partnering with the Parisian club, Hisense can count on one of the largest communities in world sport, with over 200 million followers, to attract new customers through innovative campaigns.
