Chinese La Liga shareholder's vacation request
Wu Bin, from Ningbo, Zhejiang province, recently applied for leave with a rather unusual request: to watch a football game in Spain.
Wu, who is a shareholder in La Liga's football team, Eibar, has been invited by the team's president to watch the home team take on Real Madrid in Spain on Nov 23.
The leave request note has been clicked by more than 1.14 million Internet users on Chinese Twitter-like microblogging service Sina Weibo, the Beijing Times reported.
In the first half of this year, many Chinese football fans, including Wu, became Eibar's small shareholders with 50 euros per share after the club issued shares to fill the gap in its annual budget.
Sociedad Deportiva Eibar, S.A.D. is a Spanish football club based in Eibar, Gipuzkoa, in the autonomous Basque Country. Founded on November 30, 1940, the team currently plays in La Liga.
