BEIJING, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VisionChina Media Inc. ("VisionChina
Media" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: VISN), one of China's largest out-of-home
digital television advertising networks on mass transportation systems, today
announced that it has been officially appointed as the exclusive mobile TV

according to a five-year term strategic cooperation agreement. In 2013,
VisionChina Media will team with China Central Television ("CCTV") and SINA to

platforms.

Qilin Zhu, the general manger of the Chinese Football Association Super League

media coverage. Partnering with VisionChina Media will greatly enhance CSL's
nationwide impact. Football has become a truly international sport, and CSL is
one of the most influential sports leagues in China. This partnership combines
one of the most influential sporting events with one of the most powerful
media networks in China to provide seamless media coverage of CSL for
commuters, and to bring football into everyone's daily life."

Limin Li, VisionChina Media's chairman and chief executive officer, commented,
"During large sporting events like the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the 2010
Guangzhou Asian Games, the 2011 Shenzhen Universiade and the 2012 London
Olympics, the premium visual experience and live program coverage delivered by
our exclusive nationwide mobile TV networks across public transit systems
showcased our dissemination power and put us in front of millions of
commuters. Public transit commuters are a key demographic for Chinese
football. Our exclusive role as a mobile TV strategic partner of the CSL will
create an atmosphere of 'watching football at any time, at any place', which
will enhance the impact of the CSL across the country and make football a
truly national sport. At the same time, multiple efforts will be made to
create attractive and interactive advertising products. We believe we are well
positioned to realize the benefit of the vast business opportunities presented
by the CSL."

Mr. Li added, "The Chinese Football Association Super League Corporation and
representatives of its 16 football clubs recently met with us at our Shenzhen
headquarters to discuss the overall marketing strategy and plan for the 2013
CSL season. So far, we have developed six programs to capture highlights of
the games, broadcast live matches, provide real-time updates, and also share
news of individual football clubs, with the aim of bringing the enthusiasm and
culture of football to a wide range of audiences."

Mr. Li continued, "We will soon launch our interactive platform, VisionChina
Media - CSL, to enable audiences to interact in real-time with CSL matches and
campaigns broadcasted on mobile TV through their smartphones. Bus and subway
commuters will be able to obtain CSL news, match results and statistics, and
join online games. We believe the combination of our digital television
network and interactive application will enhance the fun experience for our
audiences and yield greater value for our advertisers. We are delighted to be
the exclusive mobile TV partner of the CSL, and we look forward to a great
2013 season."
