Ventola Projects signs partnership deal with Leicester Riders Basketball Club for second season

The Leicester Riders is one of the oldest and most successful basketball teams in the UK and as they prepare for the start of their 2018/19 season, leading LED lighting and electrical specialists Ventola Projects are pleased to be on board as one of the team’s official commercial partners as well as sponsoring American Head Coach Rob Paternostro and the Leicester Riders cheerleaders. This is the second season that Ventola Projects has been a commercial partner for the high-flying team.

Supporting the Riders, American Head Coach Rob Paternostro and the cheerleaders throughout the upcoming season, which runs from September 2018 – April 2019, Ventola’s sponsorship will help fund further investment into the club and its players.

Mick Ventola, the founder and Managing Director of Ventola Projects, said: “All of the team at Ventola Projects are delighted to once again be sponsoring the Riders. The team enjoyed a fantastic 2017/18 season and Rob has done an amazing job in taking them to the top. I am personally looking forward to seeing what more they have in store. Theyve already had a good pre-season and hopefully more is to come.

I think it is extremely important for us to support those around us that are striving for success too. Sports teams such as The Riders help put Leicester on the map and without sponsorship they are not able to make the crucial advancements they need to continue rising through the ranks.

Ventola’s sponsorship comes at a time of great progress and achievement for the team, as they were also recently announced as the first UK side to play in Europe, after being accepted into the 2018/19 Basketball Champions League.

The Riders have also claimed four British Basketball League titles, two British Basketball Cups and reigned supreme as the title holders for the BBL Trophy for the past three consecutive seasons. So, all eyes will be on the team to see if they can make it a quadruple win.

Ventola Projects hopes that through its continuing support for a successful basketball team like the Leicester Riders will enable them to continue its own development. The company has already worked on several projects across the USA, installing a range of innovative lighting solutions, with further plans already in place for the future.
