Botafogo completes shorts link-up with STX

Brazilian Série A club Botafogo has signed a new partnership with real estate development brand STX.

Under the deal, STX will have branding on the front of Botafogo’s shorts until the end of the 2019 season.

Botafogo is the second Rio de Janeiro club to have signed a partnership with STX.

In August last year, STX signed a back-of-shirt deal with local rivals Fluminense until the end of the 2018 season.

Botafogo’s partnership with STX will go live when the team faces Fluminense in tomorrow’s carioca derby at the Maracanã stadium.

STX has over 30 years’ experience in real estate development, and its investments are concentrated in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
