Azeite Royal returns to Vasco da Gama

Campeonato Brasileiro Série A football club Vasco da Gama has signed a shirt sponsorship deal with Portuguese olive oil manufacturer Azeite Royal.

Azeite Royal has recently launched in the Brazilian market and will have its logo positioned on the upper back of Vasco’s shirt for the remainder of the 2019 season, commencing with Saturday’s match against Grêmio.

Azeite Royal has struck a long-term deal with the club after previously partnering with Vasco for April’s final of the Campeonato Carioca.

Vasco’s marketing director, Carlos Costa, said: “From there, we begin conversations for a more consistent relationship, which will at least run until the end of this year.

“Due to the size of our fanbase, present in all regions of the country, we will be a strategic partner for Azeite Royal, which, with its operational capacity and the quality of its products, will soon occupy a prominent position in the Brazilian market.”
