Rome, 23 January

The partnership between the Italian Volleyball Federation and Erreà Sport is increasingly strong. As from 1 March 2017 the manufacturing company from Parma will in fact become the new official technical sponsor for the men's and women's national volleyball teams for the four-year period leading up to the next Olympic Games and will work alongside all the Italian national teams until 31 January 2021.

Following on from the Sitting Volleyball national teams, the referees and the young hopefuls of the Club Italia, the well-known Italian brand will now be working alongside the two national teams, producing their new match kits and an entire range of exclusively designed clothing.

This is a technical partnership from an Italian brand that represents an Italian-made product and a spirit of innovation that combines perfectly with the national teams' ambitions.

“The feeling that ties us to Erreà Sport is not a mystery– said the Federation's President, Carlo Magri, - After our previous, positive experiences, we thought the time was right to become even more closely linked with a brand like Erreà Sport that is expanding so strongly. We believe firmly in this partnership that we consider could prove fruitful for both parties. For its part, Erreà Sport has placed its experts totally at our disposal so that our players will, in the forthcoming seasons, wear state-of-the-art garments, demonstrating trust and respect towards us and the work we do. Please allow me to restate my total satisfaction for this very important agreement."

In the context of the contract between the FIPAV and Erreà Sport, important aspects linked to the world of merchandising will also be discussed. Erreà will in fact be producing a complete range of totally customised clothing for the national teams that will consist of a vast selection of garments to be sold to both fans and enthusiasts. The stylistic details of the official kits and the extremely innovative features, into which Erreà has put such great attention to detail, will be presented at a later date.

The statement by Angelo Gandolfi, President of Erreà Sport: “Erreà's growth and maturity in the world of volleyball, which is the result of continuous investment and the expertise acquired over decades of collaborations, has allowed us to arrive at this historically important agreement. It is truly a great honour to have been selected and called upon to clothe the national teams, as they are symbols of Italian character around the world.In terms of importance, this partnership represents for our company an achievement of the highest prestige and it is the crowning achievement for all those years of hard work. It is a major professional challenge into which we intend to put all our unceasing efforts and all of our expertise acquired over time into this sector."
