AZEMAD to be event sponsor of rink hockey at World Roller Games

Dec. 12, 2018

The World Roller Games Barcelona 2019 signed an important agreement this Wednesday with AZEMAD Sport, a business division of the AZEMAD firm, in which the Portuguese company will become an event sponsor of the rink hockey discipline.

AZEMAD Sport is a leading brand in the field of rink hockey sticks with an international career that spans more than five decades. The brand will receive maximum visibility and exposure at the World Championships to be held in Barcelona and also exclusivity in its sector products. As event sponsor, AZEMAD Sport will become the main sponsor of rink hockey, with an extensive presence in the four venues set to host the rink hockey competition between 29 June and 14 July: Villanova i la Geltrú, Terrassa, Sant Cugat and Palau Blaugrana, venue of the final.

The Portuguese firm has also signed the sustainability commitment governing the event and will produce various exclusive technical products under the WRG banner. Its experience is backed by major sponsorship agreements with the Portuguese and Catalan Roller Sports Federations, as well as with the world’s best rink hockey teams, such as Portugal’s SL Benfica and Sporting CP or Spain’s Reus Deportiu, CP Vic and CP Voltregà.

The agreement that was sealed this Wednesday guarantees the presence of AZEMAD’s brand in promoting the event, as well as the chance to conduct product sale activities at the competition’s facilities.

AZEMAD CEO Paulo Martins expressed his satisfaction after signing the agreement on Wednesday alongside Ramon Basiana, President of the Executive Committee of the World Roller Games 2019 and Catalan Roller Sports Federation. Also present at the event were Carlos Feriche, Deputy Director of the Royal Spanish Roller Sports Federation; Albert Cucarella, Manager of the Catalan Roller Sports Federation, and Marc Caballé, Executive Director of the World Roller Games 2019.

Martins believes that the agreement “demonstrates AZEMAD’s commitment to becoming one of the main driving forces behind rink hockey. Our desire is always to be at the forefront of the evolution of this discipline” and he praised the “efficiency and professionalism of the World Roller Games Barcelona 2019 organisers”.
