OPAP and AEK FC continue together for the 2017-2018 season
OPAP and AEK FC presented their sponsorship cooperation for the 2017-2018 season, on Monday 11 September 2017. PAME STOIXIMA will be AEK FC’s grand sponsor and its logo will be featured on the team’s official shirts.
The sponsorship cooperation between OPAP, the leading gaming company in Greece, and AEK FC has already completed two years and continues dynamically. The beginning of their cooperation for the third season is marked by AEK’s participation in Europa League’s group stage.
Speaking at the presentation, which took place in OPAP’s headquarters, OPAP CEO, Damian Cope, said: “Today, we are delighted to announce the extension of our collaboration. For the third season in a row, PAME STOIXIMA – one of OPAP’s flagship games – will appear on AEK’s shirt, which has been worn by many great players over the years. This season is special for both of us, for one more reason: AEK is representing Greece in Europe for the first time after 6 years, having qualified to the Europa League group stage, after an epic victory against Club Brugge. Everyone at OPAP wishes the club, its management, coaching staff and players success in the domestic and European competitions; and we hope this season will be a memorable one for AEK’s fans”.
AEK FC CEO and First Vice President, Minas Lissandrou, stressed: “OPAP is one of our most important strategic partners – the most important to be precise – at the sponsorships’ level. In every respect, OPAP is the strongest foundation of our sponsorship program. OPAP is not just a simple partner, supporter or sponsor of AEK FC. Our cooperation, which is primarily expressed through visual features in our clothing kits, our home stadium, our training center, as well as through OPAP’s Stand for Children, has already left a mark on our modern history”.
ΑΕΚ FC Executive Director, Dušan Bajević, noted: “I would like to thank the people of OPAP for our excellent cooperation. Moreover, as a sports person, I want to congratulate them for their significant support to Greek sports – and children in particular – as well as to the society overall”.
From his part, AEK FC coach, Manolo Jiménez, underlined: “I am delighted to belong to AEK and that we have this great sponsor, which apart from its support to our club, carries out significant social work. Specifically, this is related to hospitals, children, Sports Academies. Its big support and social action helps our fellow people”.
AEK FC captain, Petros Mantalos, stated: “AEK is a big club and OPAP is a big company. Their cooperation can only lead to a bright and fruitful future for both of them”.
