Flour Power: Pang Extends Port MOU


At a press conference this morning, the Port Authority and Mme Pang announced that her MOU with Port would be extended for a further 5 years. The agreement, which was due to run out at the end of 2019, will now expire in 2024. We also understand that the agreement can be cancelled at 6-12 months’ notice with the agreement of both sides.

Whilst most fans I know, myself included, still have their reservations about Pang’s tenure at Port, it has to be said that without her largesse the club would probably be playing in T2 if at all, and the quality of players she’s brought in, and the spectacle they’re providing, can’t be denied. It’s such a shame that, after 4 years, the commercial & PR side of the club is still virtually non-existent, but one might hold out some forlorn hope that, with a longer-term deal now in place, there is more reason to get this side of things sorted out.

With the worry of what might happen without Pang’s financial backing now lifted, we Port fans can get on with enjoying what promises to be an exciting 2019 season.
