Italian football club Hellas Verona FC Esports has established a partnership with domestic energy and gas company Gruppo Sinergy.
The deal will see Gruppo Sinergy, which is also based in the city of Verona, become the main sponsor on the team’s jersey.
Hellas Verona FC Esports, the esports division of the Serie A football club, was established just a few weeks ago after the club partnered with Outplayed Esports. It was launched to compete in FIFA’s eSerie A against Roma, Fiorentina, and Sassuolo, and in eFootball PES versus Bologna, Sassuolo, and Lazio.
The shirt design is based on Hellas Verona’s third kit, the “Macron Third,” which is designed to have a more vintage appeal. Gruppo Sinergy is also the main sponsor of Hellas Verona’s football jerseys, alongside AirDolomiti, Sartori, and Trivellato.
HVFC Esports has also announced two official players: Kevin “D3ave” Cortese, who will compete in FIFA, and Alfonso “Alograyfox” Mereu, who will represent the team in PES.
Esports Insider says: As a local company, Gruppo Sinergy was already a natural partner for Hellas Verona FC, but it’s good to see that partnership be extended to cover the side’s esports division, too.
