The Shanghai Greenland Shenhua Football Club will call Primus Hotel Sydney home tonight ahead of their game against Sydney F.C at Allianz Stadium.
Greenland Group — the owners of Primus Hotel — purchased Shanghai Greenland Shenhua Football Club January 2014, strengthening its commitment to sport in China and their contribution to the sports industry as a whole.
Daniel Muhor, General Manager, Primus Hotel Sydney, said, “We are thrilled to welcome the Shanghai Greenland Shenhua Football Club to Primus this week. We take great pride in offering exceptional dining and superior accommodation – but more than that, it is an honour to be able to offer a home away from home. True hospitality is the heart of what we do and we are delighted to offer the very best in dining, entertainment and access to our vibrant city.”
The football team is led by Head Coach, Wu Jingui, and captained by Columbian born, Giovanni Moreno. Australian Socceroo’s great, Tim Cahill also previously played in the Shenhua team.
