On May 12, Manchester City defeated Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club 
(Brighton) 4-1 making it the sixth league title to be won by the Club. 
Throughout the season, Manchester City and Liverpool went back and forth, 
trading the lead. When the championship for the 2018/19 season drew near, 
Manchester City's last game against Brighton was a significant win as the Club 
has won the Carabao Cup and Premier League for the second year in a row.

"As the Official Tire Partner of Manchester City, we would like to congratulate 
the Club for their outstanding victory," said Travis Kang, Global CEO of Nexen 
Tire. "Ever since we partnered with Manchester City and became the Official 
Sleeve Partner, the Club continued to display records of success. Not only is 
this meaningful for the company, but this is also a reminder of the hard effort 
and team work that the Club put forward."

"It was another momentous season for Manchester City and Nexen Tire is proud to 
support and be a longstanding partner with Manchester City in this winning 
season and we will continue to reach out to more fans globally and drive our 
brand awareness." 

Nexen Tire extended its multi-year partnership with Manchester City in March 
2017, becoming the first ever Official Sleeve Partner in the EPL history. Since 
the partnership, Manchester City has been on a continuing success with two 
Premiere League wins for two years in a row. Through this partnership, the 
company has been increasing its global brand awareness and plans to continue 
its wide range of marketing efforts with the club. 2019 is also a momentous 
year for Nexen Tire as it completed four major facilities - R&D centers in 
Magok, the US, and Europe as well as a new plant that will open in Europe. With 
Nexen Tire's accomplishments and Manchester City's second-year win, the two 
partners created a synergy effect.

Meanwhile, Nexen Tire is scheduled to launch various local and international 
events for B2B and B2C to celebrate Manchester City's win.
