Parma, 08 August 2021Parma Calcio 1913 are delighted to announce that two more big deals have been reached for the 2021/22 season. Canovi Coperture and EGO Airways will be our new sleeve sponsor and back sponsor respectively on the match kits and training gear for the men’s first team. Both will make their debut tonight as Parma host Inter in a friendly at the Tardini.

In terms of Canovi Coperture, it’s the continuation of a previous deal, meaning that the Modena-based company will be the Club’s sleeve sponsor for the third consecutive year. The partnership began back in 2016 when Canovi Coperture carried out a number of upgrades on facilities at the Club. They were first the back sponsor for the academy and then the women’s team before becoming sleeve sponsor on the first team’s shirts for the 2019/20 season. Founded in 1992, Canovi Coperture are active throughout Italy and are specialized in roof repair, guttering and waterproofing. The company has, throughout the years, made waves in other construction sectors, such as asbestos removal, the installation of photovoltaic panels and façade restoration.

The new addition comes in the form of EGO Airways, who will become the Crociati’s flight partner, as well as the Back Sponsor on the men’s first team’s match kits, training gear and leisurewear. This newly-founded collaboration is based on the ambition for common growth and on values such as inclusiveness, innovation and technology. Founded on 29 July 2019, EGO Airways are an entirely Italian-owned airline, which operates the Embrear 190 jet. The core values of the company are environmental sustainability, attention to the needs of each individual customer, pride in Italy and inclusiveness.

Jaap Kalma, Managing Director Corporate of Parma Calcio 1913, said: We’re proud to have amazing partners, who share in our values, are keen to invest in our project and to be at our side. For today’s announcement, we have one partner that is continuing down the road with us for the sixth year, Canovi Coperture, and that recognizes the strength and solidity of Parma Calcio. We have also found a new ally in EGO Airways, a company on the rise in the world of airlines. We’re convinced that it will be a satisfying season for everyone involved.”

Antonio Carboni, Sole Director of Canovi Coperture, had this to say: The fact that this is the continuation of a prestigious partnership for the seventh season is an absolute honour and source of pride. The relationship between Parma and us has always been more than just a simple sponsorship. It’s deeper than that and is based on a shared vision in terms of our objectives and milestones. We’re certain that, during this season, we can get back to the joy and emotion that has defined our time together.”

Captain Antonini, Chief Operation Officer of EGO Airways, said: This is EGO Airways’ most prestigious sponsorship and we’re extremely proud to start working so closely with Parma Calcio. Seeing the passion of the fans of all ages gives us a unique feeling, which we find each day as we welcome passengers on board.”
