FONTINA TO SUPPORT FRANCESCO DE FABIANI
Signed the agreement with the prestigious Valle d'Aosta brand, cheese producer, just on the eve of the World Cup in Cogne.
Cogne, Italy – Feb. 14th 2019 - The two-day of Cogne starts with a blasting news for Francesco De Fabiani, who, in these hours, has defined an important sponsorship agreement with the "Consorzio D.O.P. Fontina".
The partnership will last until the end of the current season 2018/2019 and will involve the activity of the skier of the Centro Sportivo Esercito in the most important international events, first of all the Cross-Country World Championships scheduled for the next week in Seefeld, Austria.
The brand "Fontina", a well-established factory, also appears among the sponsors of the FIS World Cup in Cogne scheduled in a few hours. «It's a very special moment for me – says Defast, about to reach the Pearl of the Alps where he will be competing in the Sprint skating and in the 15 Km classic – I am very happy to represent the brand "Fontina" in the most important international competitions, including the Worlds. My season started with an empty space on the cap and now we finally managed to close the gap. In addition to mere sponsorship, I am proud to be from Valle d’Aosta and to bring a 100% Valle d’Aosta brand even since the two Cogne races, this means a lot for me».
Happiness and pride in the words of Fulvio Blanchet, director of the "Consorzioo D.O.P. Fontina”: «To associate our name with such an athlete like Francesco is a great pride for us, thanks to him our brand will be very visible on the tracks all over the world. A high level athlete from Aosta Valley is the best we could wish for, as well as for Valle d'Aosta».
The words of the president echo the considerations of the president of the same Consortium, Livio Vagneur: «It is a partnership that really comes at the right time: Saturday and Sunday for the first time Francesco will have the name of our brand on the cap in the home race, in Cogne, an event in which Fontina is also a partner, there could not have been a better start for us».
De Fabiani will show for the first time to the fans the hat with the sponsor's logo tonight at 9 pm through a Facebook Live on its official page.
