Parma, 10 August 2023 – Prometeon Tyre Group believes in medium-to-long-term partnerships which is why they have confirmed their role as the main sponsor of Parma Calcio, The Prometeon brand has been on Parma’s jersey since August last year.
Once again for the 2023-24 season, Prometeon will be on the side of the Crociati in the Italian Serie B championship, which will begin on 18 August. First of all, though is the Coppa Italia Frecciarossa match on Saturday 12 August. The team will face Bari away at the Stadio San Nicola in a match to determine who progresses to the round of 32.
Sabina Oriani, Chief Marketing Officer of the Prometeon Tyre Group: “It has been a satisfactory season, both for Parma Calcio and for our partnership. From a sporting point of view, the team very nearly gained promotion to Serie A, which remains the objective. Regarding the implementation of our projects, we have found a total collaboration which has allowed us to involve our employees first and foremost, but also our customers and representatives of the press in our industry in valuable activities. Football is a sport loved by millions of people and the visibility that this partnership gives us is strategic in Prometeon’s development.”
Luca Martines, Parma Calcio Corporate Managing Director: “We are very honoured to have Prometeon again for this season, a company and a team with whom we’ve found stability and a solid collaboration in all respects, both work-related and relational. This stems from a sharing of the values of excellence and teamwork.”
This partnership, therefore, represents a further opportunity to strengthen the Prometeon brand, not only because football is one of the most popular sports globally, but also because its values are the same as Prometeon’s: teamwork, passion, and the quest for results. During the last season, many initiatives were implemented by Prometeon: ‘Bimbi in campo’, aimed at employees’ children, media trips with print and television journalists, events for employees, as well as customer experiences.
The first Supertruck international convention was organised in Parma at the beginning of the Summer, with a focus on Parma Calcio and a dedicated programme. This saw dealers coming from nine different European countries.
Simone Marisco, Market Director Italy and Head of Prometeon Tyre Group’s Global Fleet Management: “This sponsorship is strategic for us because it allows us to forge ever-closer relationships with customers and foster business opportunities. The willingness that Parma Calcio has shown has been unconditional, and over the course of the season, we have been able to offer an increasing number of customers dedicated experiences: Not only watching the match but enjoying the hospitality, visiting the museum and the changing rooms, watching the players warm up from the sidelines. A true full immersion into the world of Parma Calcio. In the 18 home matches alone, at the Stadio Tardini, we brought over 500 guests from the Italian market’.
Among this season’s novelties, Prometeon has become the Official Tyre Partner of Parma Calcio, putting the tyres on the coach that accompanies all the first team’s movements. This is similar to what has been done in the World Superbike Championship, where in parallel with sponsorship, the Group has begun to supply tyres to paddock vehicles, starting with the Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK Official Team’s truck.
