Liverpool Football Club launched an online store in China on Tuesday in partnership with JD.com, the country’s number two e-commerce society.
The tie-up will allow Liverpool, which finished eighth in the Premier League table and was in the final of the Europa League, to use the company’s online sales platform, JD Worldwide, to sell its merchandise across China.
