Renewed partnership between NARDI and L.R. Vicenza

Renewed partnership between NARDI and L.R. Vicenza

The collaboration between Nardi and L.R. Vicenza is confirmed with new enthusiasm also for the 2019/2020 football season.

NARDI's sponsorship confirms the company's responsibility and commitment to the local area and its activities. Giampietro Nardi, President of NARDI S.p.A. comments, “I have always loved sport and I have also actively taken part in it at an amateur level. Football and the Vicenza football team have always been my passions: I remember all the occasions I went to the Menti stadium to support the team in whatever Serie it played. As an entrepreneur, I am now proud to be able to support it. Naturally, I always hope for sporting wins but I also think, above all, of all those youngsters that this sport can involve. Sports are essential for the psycho-physical growth of individuals and I believe that choosing to support certain activities such as this one comes under the umbrella of social responsibility, which we, as entrepreneurs, have towards our local area.”

L.R. Vicenza (acronym for Lanerossi Vicenza), the oldest football team (founded in 1902) in the Veneto region, is currently playing in Italy's Serie C Championship.  

The famous faces of the football club include the patron Renzo Rosso, the founder of Diesel; the new coach of L.R. Vicenza Domenico Di Carlo, who contributed to the victory in the Coppa Italia 1997 against Napoli and in the semi-final of the Cup Winners' Cup in the following season against Chelsea; and Paolo Rossi, world champion in 1982 in Spain and the current ambassador of the club.
