Queuing up in the early hours of the morning on the opening day of a Subscription Campaign is a tradition, a ritual driven by great passion for Varese Basketball. And so, today, Thursday 24 May 2018, the first super fans showed up at the PALA2A to renew their loyalty to the Red & Whites. The first season ticket holder for the next League Serie A championship is Claudio Colombo from Venegono Superiore. Claudio, a holder for 10 years, queued up from 6.30 in the morning confirming his place in the gold stand together with his wife Daniela, son Jacob and his cousin Marica. In second place on the podium of the speedy loyal fans was Alessio Furiga from Bardello, a student in Communication Studies at Insubria University, who has renewed his subscription for the North Curve for the fifteenth year in a row. Third place goes to Edoardo Scola from Milan, a holder for 6 years in Galleria B. The first fan who subscribed using the discount reserved for members of the ‘We Are Basketball’ Trust was Augusto Zaniboni.
The loyalty and sheer speed of the first three fans was rewarded with official Varese Basketball merchandise that was awarded by the captain of Openjobmetis Varese, Giancarlo Ferrero and mascot Giangallo. The first three loyal fans also received a free pack of ‘Italian bubbles’, kindly donated by the Fratelli Badi company. The first 50 subscribers will also receive one. In addition, all fans who subscribe to the 2018/2019 season of Openjobmetis Varese Basketball will receive a Tigros voucher.
