Tottenham urged to drop Chinese shirt sponsor AIA – Sports Business Journal

British politicians have called on Tottenham to sever ties with its main sponsor, AIA, as they accused the club of “collaborating with supporters of human rights abuses in Hong Kong.” The Chinese company AIA Group, Asia’s largest life insurer, has publicly supported Hong Kong’s national security law, which since its implementation in June 2020 has cracked down on freedom of expression, assembly and dissent. The law has resulted in the closure of civil society groups, trade unions and independent media as well as the arrest of more than 200 activists, journalists and former politicians, the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hong Kong said.

Days after the security law was imposed, AIA issued a public statement in support of the legislation, despite international condemnation and firm opposition from the British government. In a letter addressed to Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy, the parliamentary group called for the Premier League club to “end its partnership with AIA Group.” Tottenham declined to comment. AIA was approached for comment (LONDON TIMES, 11/1).
