On Friday afternoon, the CEO of PharmaNutra SPA, Carlo Volpi illustrated to the press the details of the renewal of the Main Sponsorship with Parma Calcio 1913: also for 2018-19, Cetilar® will be present on the Parma’s soccer players shirts.
On Friday 24 July, at the press conference to present the main team’s new entries Gervinho, Jonathan Biabiany and Mattia Sprocati, Parma Calcio 1913 officially announced the renewal of the sponsorship between PharmaNutra SPA, through its Cetilar® brand, and the Emilian team, newly promoted in Serie A.

As it happened last year during the extraordinary ride that led the Parma Calcio in the top division of the Italian Football Championship, also for the 2018-2019 season Cetilar® will therefore be the Main Sponsor of Parma Calcio 1913, an official presence on the shirts of the players which represents an additional, important opportunity for development and visibility for a brand already present successfully in other sports such as running, motorsport and sailing.

“The main sponsorship of Parma Calcio 1913 in Serie A is an important and unique opportunity to continue to enhance our Cetilar® brand at ever higher levels, given that we are talking about a first-rate stage, which this year will have an even greater echo also at international level”, explained the Managing Director of the PharmaNutra SPA Group, Carlo Volpi, who spoke at the press conference alongside the CEO of Parma Luca Carra and the Sports Director Daniele Faggiano.

“We are very happy to be able to give continuity to a relationship started 8 years ago as Medical Partner, thanks to the effectiveness and innovation of our products. Our relationship went on last year in an even more important role, which saw the presence of Cetilar® on the players shirts during an extraordinary season, culminating with the promotion in Serie A. We could not not continue on this path, and this also because of a matter of affection and esteem towards a company and a team protagonists of a unique team with which we have shared some extraordinary moments”, concluded Volpi, who also highlighted the close and consolidated relationship that links PharmaNutra SPA with the region of Parma, through the partnership with the car manufacturer Dallara in the Cetilar Villorba Corse team, protagonist of the last two editions of the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans and in the European Le Mans Series, or with the CUS Parma through the running race, Cetilar Run.

Therefore, for PharmaNutra SPA, it sounds natural the precise desire to keep on this path alongside the Parma Calcio 1913, a company of true excellence, promoter of those healthy sports values that the company itself, through the range of its products dedicated to sport, fully approves.

“I thank PharmaNutra”, declared the Parma Calcio’s CEO Luca Carra, “for the trust in us and we are very happy that the Cetilar® brand accompanied us in the last step of our ascent from D to A division. I agree with Carlo Volpi: it is an agreement that is the result of a collaboration built and grown over time and we also hope that the new agreement can be the background to other new successes for both of us”.

The Cetilar brand is enjoying considerable success among sportsmen, thanks to its proven effectiveness in reducing painful symptoms in the musculoskeletal level, promoting rehabilitation resulting from inflammatory phenomena and joint and muscle injuries, Cetilar® is the expression of an innovative formulation based on cetylated esters available in cream and patches.
