Before the start of the new season Widzew Łódź is to play #ZawszeW13, together with its new Strategic Sponsor – Panattoni, the most active developer in the world.
The contract between Widzew Łódź and Panattoni is to cover the 2023/2024 season. Panattoni’s logo is to be displayed in a central position on the football shirts of Widzew Łódź’s first team as well as on the stadium at al. Piłsudskiego 138. The LED strips are to display Panattoni promotional spots during the first team’s matches and they will also feature in the club’s loudspeaker announcements as well as in the official media of the club.
“We have been in Łódź for many years and have been investing in the region for a long time. This is a key region in Poland for us as well as a key region for business in Europe. Because of our investment, the city continues to grow. It’s now been two years since we decided to first start working with Widzew on the Widzew Academy, which aligned perfectly with our strategy to run our business responsibly and support local communities. Now the time has come to go one step further and take our relationship to a higher level. I hope that our strategic partnership will help Widzew to grow. The backing of an international company, which is what Panattoni is offering, will be an important resource for the club and for us it will symbolise both the support that business provides to the region as well as the opportunity that a football team has to ascend even higher,” commented Robert Dobrzycki, the CEO & Co-owner of Panattoni Europe and India.
Panattoni became one of the partners of Widzew Łódź at the end of 2021 taking on the title of the Strategic Sponsor of the Widzew Academy. The company logo was placed in a central position on the Widzew Łódź youth team’s football shirts.
“When building relations with partners we concentrate on gradually developing our work together and building mutual respect. We are looking for a professional approach as for the satisfaction of our sponsors and friends. I am pleased that Panattoni has decided to significantly broaden the scope of their work with us and take on the role of Strategic Sponsor for the entire club. For me this demonstrates not only that our work has been done well but also that there is significant support for the club. We were in negotiations with many different parties but the opportunity to work together with Panattoni at this level is a step forward for Widzew. I want to thank Robert Dobrzycki, the CEO, for his trust. With such support we will fight for more victories in the PKO Bank Polski Ekstraklasa league,” said Michał Rydz the president of the management board of Widzew Łódź S.A.
Since Panattoni began operating in Łódź and its surrounding area, it has delivered over 2.2 mln m2 of space to create a growth platform for hundreds of companies from various sectors. Within the city itself, the developer has completed the Central European Logistics Hub, a gigantic development that already comprises more than 630,000 m2 where leading companies such as Smyk, BSH and Media Expert lease space.
Panattoni offers industrial and warehouse buildings together with accompanying office space. The company specialises in built-to-suit (BTS) developments that are constructed to meet the individual requirements of the tenant. Within its portfolio of completed logistics parks it also has space available for immediate lease throughout Poland.
