GRO, RCD Espanyol’s new supplierGRO
The GRO logo will appear on the left side of the playing and training trousers.
RCD Espanyol, Spanish football team, and GRO, the brand of lubricants, greases and maintenance products for the automotive industry launched by COGELSA in 2000, have signed a sponsorship agreement for the remainder of the 20/21 season, and for the 21/22 and 22/23 campaigns.
With this agreement, the GRO will gain presence on the Blue and Whites’ kit. The GRO logo will appear both on the playing shorts of the men’s first team in the second Spanish football league and on the training kit, specifically on the left side.
Within the framework of this agreement, GRO will offer members and season ticket holders of RCD Espanyol advantageous prices and will also be the supplier of lubricants and greases, both automotive and industrial, that the club requires.
“For GRO, sponsoring RCD Espanyol is an unbeatable opportunity to achieve the brand awareness we are looking for, together with other actions in the Moto GP, World Championship Rally or the Dakar. Effort and professionalism to give the best performance are the values that our company shares with the Club”, says Xavier Brugarolas, CEO of GRO.
“It is a source of pride for RCD Espanyol that a company like GRO has decided to join our project. We are very grateful for the trust they have placed in our Club, as this is a contract with a view to the future. We are convinced that it will be a profitable agreement for everyone”, summarised RCD Espanyol’s general manager, José María Durán.
A group of students founded RCD Espanyol on 28 October 1900. Years later, Espanyol became one of the founders of Spanish La Liga. Throughout its history it has won four Cups and two UEFA runners-up medals and has had players such as Zamora, Marañón, N’Kono, Tamudo and Jarque. The stadiums where the Blue and Whites have played have been Sarriá, Montjuic and currently, since 2009, the RCDE Stadium, a stadium recognised as the best sports facility in 2010.
