Atlético Mineiro, Avaí sign shirt sponsorship deals

Atlético Mineiro has extended its kit sponsorship deal with vehicle maintenance company Auto Truck, while fellow Campeonato Brasileiro Série A football team Avaí has signed food products manufacturer Zaeli Alimentos as a new shirt sponsor.

Formerly present on Atlético’s shorts, Auto Truck’s new two-year deal with the club will grant it enhanced exposure.

Auto Truck’s brand will now be emblazoned on the back of Atlético’s shirt and training kit.

Meanwhile, Zaeli has agreed a deal with Avaí for its brand to be present on the back of the club’s shirt.

The contract will run through to the end of the 2019 Série A season in December.
