City drive off with new deal

Manchester City have increased their international profile by entering into a partnership with Japanese car manufacturer Daihatsu.

In a deal that emulates some of the many Manchester United have struck in their expanding sponsorship portfolio, Daihatsu will become City's official automotive partner in Indonesia next season.

City players will film a TV advert and will visit Indonesia this summer during the pre-season tour of south-east Asia.

To be chosen as Daihatsu's first-ever football club partner is not only a huge privilege, but a compliment to City's growing appeal around the world.
