TIM extends top-tier partnership with FIGC

Telco TIM has agreed a four-year extension to its contract as a Top Partner of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).

The extension has been signed in the 20th anniversary year of the partnership. TIM will continue to support all of Italy’s national teams through the deal.

FIGC president Gabriele Gravina said: “One of the most interesting points of the agreement concerns the establishment of a common work team to devise and develop innovative projects that involve the Azzurra jersey and the football system as a whole through the use of new technologies.”

TIM will continue as a Top Partner alongside Puma, Eni, Fiat and Posteitaliane.
