Sophia Yang

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

I joined Media Base Sports as the Executive Director following the acquisition of the majority stake in MBS by Chinese listed sports group company Wuhan DDMC Culture Co., Ltd (DDMC).

I was born in Chengdu, China and completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in law at China's most prestigious law school, Wuhan University, where I obtained my Chinese Lawyer qualification certificate. In 2010, I obtained my doctoral degree in international commercial law after three wonderful years of studies at Basel University in Switzerland.

I started my career in the area of international arbitration as Deputy Counsel at two of the world's most prestigious arbitration institutions, Singapore International Arbitration Centre and ICC Court of Arbitration. Afterwards, I returned to private practice as a lawyer at the German office of an international law firm which is best known for its market leading practice in IP, media and sports.

Besides being a lawyer, I am an enthusiastic football fan. The love of sports motivated me to start my new life adventure at MBS in Barcelona.

I speak Chinese (native), English and basic German. Thanks to my truly international and multicultural experience after living and working in 7 different countries and regions (China, Singapore, Hong Kong, France, Switzerland, Germany and Spain), I am an open minded and optimistic person who can readily adapt to any new opportunity that presents itself.
