It is with a great deal of satisfaction that Varese Basketball announces an agreement with Spalding who will be the technical sponsor of the Red & Whites club until the end of the 2018/2019 season. This renews an agreement begun in 2015 that has brought enormous satisfaction both on and off court to both companies who have worked side by side in these three years, sharing the values of sport and basketball and offering top quality materials, both to Varese subscription holders and to Openjobmetis fans. The historic American brand, distributed in Italy by Gafler s.r.l., will deal with the supply of technical-sports material on behalf of the first team, of the entire youth sector and of the merchandising area.
