It is understood that the two 50-year-old difference between the "European business card" and "Chinese business card" from the beginning to the confirmation of cooperation, only a few months apart. Both sides showed great sincerity in holding hands at first sight, with Uefa president Alexander Chiefelin bringing the UEFA de Laone Cup and the European Carling Cup, while Alipay invited Jack Ma.
At the press conference, UEFA President Ache Ferrin gave a speech when he spoke with Ma Yun when he met in Moscow five months ago. "That is not a typical commercial negotiation," he said. "We didn't talk too much. Business, not talking about money and profit, we talk about football passion, talk about how to help children change the world, talk about how we can help women's football development. That is the most impressive meeting I have.
Ma Yun shared his understanding of football. "Football should be accessible to everyone, especially when girls can fight for their dreams on the football field. We should be proud of them. This is sportsmanship, sports. It’s not just sports. There is deep value behind sports.” For example, “There is always a lot of conflict in this world. The best solution is football. Football matches can promote peace and maintain peace. This is what we need. What China needs, the world needs."
Regarding why Alipay cooperates with UEFA, Ma Yun said, “Alibaba and Alipay are very willing to support the development of sports. We are willing to improve and enhance inclusiveness, promote health, happiness and happiness, and promote the spirit of teamwork in China. The spirit of cooperation, this is our initial heart."
Ma Yun also said that in this eight-year cooperation, Alipay will use its self-developed technology to produce a "chemical reaction" with football, and together with UEFA to meet the digital age, "through technology to help football, let everyone You can enjoy football matches and enjoy playing football together at any time and anywhere."
