Solar And Football - A Perfect Match For Yingli Solar

SINGAPORE, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (NYSE: YGE) ("Yingli Green Energy" or the "Company"), the largest vertically integrated photovoltaic ("PV") module manufacturer in the world, known as " Yingli Solar," is excited to announce that the Company will sponsor ten youths from South East Asia for a chance of a lifetime to compete in the upcoming FC Bayern Munchen (FCB) Youth Cup, an international competition for talented young football players from across the world. The youths will first train with their new teammates in Thailand on the 12 th to 17 th of May before they meet with the other teams from Austria, China, Germany, Italy, India, Japan and USA for the Youth Cup finals on the 22 nd of May at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany. In participation of this event, these ten selected youths from Thailand & Myanmar had each been presented a Yingli medal by Germany's Ambassador to Thailand H.E. Mr. Rolf Schulze at a press conference held on the 13 th May 2014 at 11:00 hours at the Hotel Golden Tulip Sovereign in Bangkok.


As an Official Premium Partner of FCB, the Company sponsors the Youth Cup with the goal of providing youths from various countries and diverse social backgrounds with the opportunity to train with one of the world's most successful football clubs. To build its Southeast Asia Youth Cup team, the Company joined forces with the Football Association of Thailand (FAT) and Myanmar Football Federation (MFF). Over 200 youths took part in the open tryouts in March. Among many others, two youths from Thailand travelled together for 9 hours from the border close to Laos to take part in the Bangkok tryouts. The Company seeks to promote the development of youth football in Southeast Asia as part of its initiative to bring awareness to environmental issues and to drive the importance of solar energy.

In addition to sponsoring FC Bayern Munchen, the Company is also the proud sponsor of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ and has taken another significant step in introducing clean solar energy to making  this event more sustainable. The Company became the first Chinese and the first renewable energy company to be a FIFA World Cup™ sponsor in 2010. The FIFA World Cup™ finals, which are the world's most-watched single-sport events, will take place in Brazil during June and July of 2014.

The Company has installed over 1,500 YGE 245 Series solar modules placed on a metal ring that encircles the top of the Brazil's highest-profile football stadium, Estadio do Maracana. Owned by the State Government, the Maracana stadium was opened in 1950 to host the 1950 FIFA World Cup™ and was the world's largest stadium by capacity at the time. Currently seating 82,238 spectators, the arena will be the host facility for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ final game.

The Company has also supplied 1 MW of solar panels to Grupo Neoenergia, one of Brazil's largest energy companies to deliver clean electricity to Arena Pernambuco, the site of five 2014 FIFA World Cup™ matches. The ground-mounted system is the first solar farm in the Brazilian State of Pernambuco and will incorporate more than 3,650 Yingli Solar monocrystalline PANDA Series panels.
