Grupo Empresarial Costa has signed a sponsorship deal with Basket Zaragoza for the coming 2019-2020 season to be the club’s primary sponsor in the Endesa League. Casademont will lend its name to the team, which will now be known as: Casademont Zaragoza. Within the scope of this agreement, various other brands from the group, including Bodega SOMMOS (secondary sponsor of the team two seasons ago), SOMMOS Hoteles (where the reds will be holding their pre-season camp) and Villar (Iberian ham), will be prominent on the team’s jerseys.
Jorge Costa (Grupo Costa Empresarial CEO) and Reynaldo Benito (president of ‘Basket Zaragoza’) presented this new sponsorship deal to the media on Friday 26 July in the ‘Príncipe Felipe’ pavilion.
For Grupo Empresarial Costa, this deal is an embodiment of their commitment to galvanise the region where they are based, by supporting activities that create wealth there. From the outset, Grupo Empresarial Costa has supported sports development both at grass roots level and through the more well-established football, basketball and cycling teams.
The signing of this agreement is of great excitement for the Group as “a brand like Casademont, which has historically been linked to basketball, is back where it belongs and this is a materialisation of our Group’s commitment to sport and our region”, noted Jorge Costa.
