The most highly anticipated international cup competition of the year, EURO 2024, is just over two months away. Being a globally broadcast event, EURO 2024 presents a unique opportunity for brands. It gives them the chance to become a household name by coming on as major sponsors.

Chinese e-commerce platform AliExpress, which is a part of the multi-billion conglomerate Alibaba Group, has cashed in on the said opportunity. As unveiled by UEFA — the body governing all-things-soccer in Europe — AliExpress will serve as an official global partner of the 2024 European Championship in Germany.

It is a historic feat by AliExpress, as no e-commerce platform had previously acted as one of the official sponsors of a men’s European Championship. UEFA’s marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein announced the momentous partnership at the iconic Olympiastadion in Berlin in the presence of AliExpress’ European commercial director Gary Topp and Germany legend Oliver Bierhoff on Wednesday (March 27).
