Fortuna bookmakers continue to be the main sponsor of Legia Warszawa. Its logo will be on the club t-shirts throughout the term of the agreement.
‘The extension of the sponsorship contract is one of the most important moments, because it proves that our original decision to start work together was a good one. It also shows that our years together have been beneficial for both sides,” says Jakub Szumielewicz, vice president of the board of Legia Warszawa.
The new contract, signed for three years, will come into force on January 1, 2017. The previous contract between Fortuna and Legia Warszawa came into force on January 1, 2014.
‘I remember that when we were signing the agreement I hoped that our cooperation would help both sides’ business development and that with their logo our their t-shirts, we could reach for success. I also remember that the Fortuna representatives said they hope our cooperation would help Legia Warszawa advance to the UEFA Champions League. It is very satisfying to be able to say that we managed to achieve it all,’ says Szumielewicz.
‘We are happy to remain the main sponsor of Legia Warszawa for the three upcoming years. Until now, our cooperation has been beneficial for both sides. During the last three years, Legia has won many championships and Fortuna has strengthened its position as the leader in the Polish bookmaking business. We wouldn’t be able to achieve this if we weren’t working together. Extending the contract means further development for both companies. We want to support Legia Warszawa on its way to further success and be an integral part of it,” says Leszek Haba, head of marketing PL in Fortuna.
Under the new contract, the Fortuna logo shall remain on official Legia t-shirts, on the stadium premises on ul.Łazienkowska 3 in Warsaw, as well as on informational and promotional materials. Legia and its main Sponsor also plan extra attractions for fans of Poland’s Champion.
‘Fortuna supports Polish football in spite of the fact that the current law regulating mutual bets and the way they are advertised, could be a lot better. It’s worth giving credit to the company for sponsoring Polish sports, because it helps fulfill or dreams of competing with leading European football clubs. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of our main Sponsor’, says Szumielewicz.
