Tsingtao beer shows support for CBA
Tsingtao Beer, a long-term partner of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), has been supporting the long-awaited reopening of the league in some innovative ways.
Even with empty arenas and stringent virus-control measures, the return of the CBA and the presence of a Tsingtao beer robot cheering squad have lifted the country's spirits.
Although the game has been broadcast live, many fans are disappointed at not being able to witness the event in person.
To address this disappointment, CBA and Tsingtao Brewery have jointly launched limited edition commemorative tickets for the semi-finals, which were given away via online and offline activities.
