Radegast is Baník’s new sponsor

12.10.2012 Radegast

Radegast Manager Karel Kraus talks about the main reasons behind the partnership: „Baník is the symbol of Northern Moravia. It has fans across the entire region and it represents it beyond its borders. The same goes for Radegast. The partnering of the two well–established Moravian entities is logical, and I am very pleased that we were able to reach a mutually agreeable agreement. We have a  lot of faith in the club and that is why we have decided to sign a  two–year contract.“

FC Baník Ostrava Chairman of the Board Petr Šafarčík is pleased with the new partner: „Radegast is an important regional brand and its support and trust is very important to Baník. I especially look forward to our combined projects and events for our fans.“

The first concrete result of the mentioned partnership is the Radegast’s participation in the celebration of 90 years of Baník that will take place this Saturday at Bazaly Stadium.
