Established in 1988, Wanda Group has developed into a conglomerate of commercial management, culture, real estate and finance. In 2017, it ranked 380th on the Fortune Global 500 List and its assets amounted to 700 billion yuan with operating revenue of 227.3 billion yuan.
As a company, Wanda’s purpose is to make life richer and build more prosperous communities. From building places where people can live; to places where they can meet; to places where they can relax and be entertained. Places that become the heart of cities.
Sport is also in Wanda’s DNA. Its association began more than 30 years ago when it sponsored a small, local football team in its home city of Dalian. That season, the team went on to win the country’s first ever professional league and Wanda’s affinity with sport has grown from those humble beginnings.
Today, Wanda sees its sporting partnerships as a powerful way of bringing to life its philosophy in the modern world. Football is the most popular sport in the world. A source of passion, devotion, hope and joy. With its global reach and billions of fans, football has unique potential to bring communities together. Wanda has therefore invested in key strategic partnerships with FIFA and Atletico Madrid, aimed at delivering spectacular and unique experiences to football fans and players all over the world and to developing the next generation of Chinese football stars.
Wanda is proud to be at the heart of the Atletico Madrid community, associated with the most spectacular modern football arena in the world and committed to supporting the long term success of the club.
