Sports sponsorship is part of SPAR’s commitment to encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle. Global awareness of the SPAR Brand is achieved through digital and print coverage of sport sponsorship.
SPAR International is principal sponsor of European Athletics and has been since 1996. This long-term support of athletes across 50 federations in Europe reflects the SPAR ethos of working together for mutual benefit. The passion that European Athletics and the athletes have for the sport comes through in everything they do; be it on the track or in the field. This kind of passion and belief in working together is also seen throughout the global SPAR family.
SPAR’s sponsorship of European Athletics will run through to December 2019, including events such as the 2016 and 2018 European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam and Berlin; the 2017 Indoor Championships in Belgrade and the SPAR European Cross-Country Championships each December.
