The Ligue 1 team, Olympique de Marseille have announced that they have renewed their sponsorship deal with the co-operative bank, Caisse d’Epargne Cepac. The agreement builds on a 23-year relationship that has now been extended until 2027.
As part of the new agreement, the company will become the first founding partner of the club’s women’s team, while also continuing to sponsor the men’s team.
The Caisse d’Epargne CEPAC is a cooperative banking institution that is a major player in the Mediterranean arc and French overseas territories. It employs over 3,180 people, has 306,000 cooperative shareholders, 242 branches serving nearly 1.5 million customers, and 10 business centres, local governments, the social economy, social housing organisations, semi-public companies, and real estate professionals.
The Caisse d’Epargne CEPAC also has a diverse portfolio of specialised business lines, such as structured finance, private equity, and real estate investment.
Chairman of Cepac’s Executive Board, Joël Chassard, said, “Co-education, diversity and inclusion are all values promoted by Cepac. This is why it seems natural to us to take part in the new adventure of the women’s team.”
The renewal is the latest addition to Marseille’s sponsorship portfolio, following the announcement that the online automotive retailer Cazoo would become the club’s front-of-shirt sponsor beginning next season.
In December 2021, the club extended its contract with the kit supplier Puma for another five seasons, until the end of the 2027-28 season.
On the field, Olympique de Marseille will next take on Feyenoord on April 29 in a UEFA Conference League semi-final leg one.
