– ManagerZone AB, the parent company of ManagerZone Inc., creator of the world’s largest online sport management game for football and hockey, in partnership with Fujian Newland Network S&T, Ltd. (Newland), has had an extremely successful launch of its first Public Test in the Chinese Market.

“We are truly excited to see ManagerZone go into public test after a long year of work getting the game ready for the Chinese market,” said Johan Christenson, Chairman of ManagerZone. “Newland has been tremendous to work with in every way and we are of course very pleased with the number of registered managers after only a few days. There is a clear demand for a game like ManagerZone in China.”

“This initial week has shown exactly how important China and our partner Newland is,” said Göran Christenson, President of ManagerZone. “More than 100,000 have signed up in the first week in China. It speaks volume for how large of a part China will play for ManagerZone as a whole. We expect China to bring ManagerZone’s total number of team managers to over one million before the summer of 2005.”

Linxuejie, CEO of NewLand Network S&T, Ltd., also expressed his expectations on the future of Chinese ManagerZone when he said, “Newland is a leading hi-tech group in China and we view ManagerZone as our entry into the online entertainment market. Newland is very confident about the future of ManagerZone in China. Over the last 9 months, millions of RMB have been put toward this project, and Newland Network S&T has grown to a 50 person company in support of the initiative. According to the information and site data from the first few days of the public test, we are very confident that ManagerZone will become one of the most popular online games in China.”
