In September 2009 a company, Ascendo Industrial, which is owned by Huang's wife was awarded a product licence by Global Brands Group to allowing Ascendo to use FIFA's logo and brand name for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. In a deal signed by Huang - who was company's managing director at the time - Ascendo Industrial then subcontracted the production of FIFA memorabilia to a Shanghai Fashion Plastic & Gifts in China.[2][4]
