The now well-established partnership between Emil Banca and Virtus Pallacanestro Bologna is enriched by a further and important commitment on the part of the bank, which today made official the partnership of the entire youth and minibasket sector of the Virtussino club.
For Emil Banca, which has always been close to the V Nere, a new path begins together with a club that focuses on the enhancement of young people, an essential element not only in the competitive aspect, but also in the social and educational profile.
“It has been almost ten years that we have been at Virtus Pallacanestro Bologna’s side through our convinced participation in the Foundation, which we joined as supporting members during the 2013/2014 season,” commented Emil Banca’s general manager Daniele Ravaglia, who added, “Since our entry into the Foundation we have also been sponsors of the Company, a relationship that has grown over the years also thanks to the group of companies and partners that Virtus has been able to involve in its sports life and that has enhanced the partnership. These have been years in which the Black V has made a great leap forward, thanks to the work of capable professionals and the generosity of a passionate president. Today we are also taking a quantum leap, characterizing our presence as a jersey sponsor of the youth sector, thus going on to support what will be the future of this club, and beyond.”
On the undershirts of the young players and on the technical material of all six teams of the youth sector and minibasket will stand, for this season, the brand “Emilbanca,” a collaboration, therefore, that continues under the banner of common fundamental values such as passion and team spirit.
“I would like to thank General Manager Daniele Ravaglia,” comments Virtus Segafredo Bologna CEO Luca Baraldi, “the partnership with Emil Banca is now a multi-year partnership that has had the strength, courage and ability to renew and strengthen itself over time, a profound sharing of values, sporting and otherwise. It is a source of satisfaction for everyone to know that their work is appreciated by partners who believe and invest in what is planned and implemented. Every day, more than 200 young athletes wear the Virtus Segafredo Bologna jersey, and I have no doubt in saying that this union of intent will give us important satisfactions.”
