Filstone sponsors Sporting CP football formation
Starting in the 2019/2020 season, the partnership between Sporting Clube de Portugal and Filstone has just gained a new dimension. In addition to the sponsorship of the senior teams of futsal and women’s football, the link between the two parties will now also extend to all levels of football formation of the emblem of Alvalade.
"The relationship between Sporting CP and Filstone is more solid than ever. Filstone identifies itself with the DNA of the Club and bets with us on the Formation. Giving our athletes, our young athletes, the best conditions to evolve and to practice sport is only possible with partners who believe in the Sporting Project", said André Bernardo, member of the Sporting CP Administration Board.
Filstone has shown a growing support for Sporting CP over the past two years, as was clear at the celebration of the Club’s 114th anniversary, when two stone statues were offered, pieces that came to feature in the two most emblematic locations of the green and white history: the José Alvalade Stadium and the Sporting Academy.
"When we started this connection we chose to support more than one modality because we believe that eclecticism is fundamental to strengthen clubs with the dimension of the Sporting CP. Now we are preparing to sponsor the youth layers of football because it is in them that the foundations of success are created. Supporting the top without forming the genesis would be to think of a club devoid of history and evolution", said Ricardo Jorge, Chairman of Filstone.
The new formation football jerseys sponsored by Filstone were used for the 1st time on April 1, in the Under 23 game with SL Benfica.
