“We are very pleased to renew our collaboration with the Pro League and to be able to help all clubs to further develop their business strategy. Over the past two seasons we have developed a true relationship of trust with the clubs which allows us to better understand them and to better meet their needs. We are proud to play a role in the professionalism of sports management in Belgium.”

Pierre François, Managing Director of the Jupiler Pro League, adds:
“Pro League clubs have chosen to measure the value of their sponsorship agreements with their various partners according to the same criteria. This collective agreement with a renowned company testifies to the professionalism of our clubs. It is particularly significant to note that this movement is also followed this season by the clubs of the Proximus League.”
