Panjim, October 5: FC Goa has announced Xiaomi, a popular smartphone brand as its title sponsor for the 2018-19 season of the Hero Indian Super League.

The highest scoring side from last season's ISL, the Gaurs have been one of the most consistently successful teams in the league - having reached the semis in three of the previous four seasons.

Partnering with FC Goa marks one of the firsts for Xiaomi India in terms of sports sponsorship. FC Goa showcased extreme rigor and a raw ability to lead, and Xiaomi India as a company shares the same beliefs. Xiaomi India rose to greater heights and has been the number 1 smartphone brand from Q3 2017 till Q2 2018, as per IDC.
