This is all about Kenyon, selling brand Chelsea and marketing in Asia.
Absolutely, and as far as we are concerned it is pointless. But from there perspective it is a big deal, not bothered by it, and if through this we manage to snap up a star out of nowhere then it will be good too.

Think it has something to do with Samsung sponsorship coming to an end and the next being lined up are Etihad as well
