Delo Group is to become the first ever title rights sponsor of the WOMEN’S EHF Champions League in an agreement signed with EHF Marketing GmbH.
The partnership contract for the seasons 2019/20 and 2020/21 was signed on 25 February 2019 in Vienna by Igor Yakovenko, CEO of DeloPorts, and Managing Director of EHF Marketing GmbH, David Szlezak.
Delo will give its name to Europe’s premier women’s club handball competition. Starting from the EHF FINAL4 2019, the event will bear the name ‘DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4’. From the start of the 2019/20 season, the new name of the competition will be the ‘DELO WOMEN’S EHF Champions League’.
Igor Yakovenko commented on the new partnership: “Over the years Delo Group has supported many sports projects in football, children’s sport, yachting and handball. Since 2015, Delo Group has promoted the development of handball in Russia and we are happy to see the results of our teams on both club and national team levels.
Just as we grow and develop in the business world, we would also like to broaden our horizons in the handball world. The team spirit found in handball, the nurturing of talent, fair play and strength are in tune with our company’s values. We’re happy to become a part of the European handball family as title sponsor of the DELO WOMEN’S EHF Champions League”.
David Szlezak, Managing Director, EHF Marketing GmbH, said: “The new partnership with the Delo Group will provide a tremendous boost for the WOMEN’S EHF Champions League. This is an opportunity to work together with a title sponsor to push forward the development of the competition, a process we have already experienced with the VELUX EHF Champions League. We are confident that the DELO WOMEN’S EHF Champions League will reinforce its status as one of the leading team sports competitions on the European market.”
The DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4 will be hosted in the Papp L?szl? Budapest Sportar?na on 11/12 May.
