The President of the Agrokor Group Ivica Todorić and the President of the Croatian football club Hajduk Branko Grgić signed a Sponsorship Agreement today at the Presidential Salon at Poljud, Split. The Agreement has been signed for a period of two years and by this Agreement Hajduk and Agrokor have undertaken to cooperate in terms of marketing, promoting Agrokor's name at each of Hajduk's performances. Both parties have recognized the mutual interest and the motive for connecting the leading national company and one of the most successful national clubs. Namely, Agrokor and its companies have intensely supported young and talented athletes, in particular those who have promoted the name of Croatia throughout the world. By signing the Agreement with Hajduk Agrokor demonstrates that besides expanding its business in Dalmatia it is also ready to finance other activities in this region. Agrokor has reconfirmed its wish to return part of its income to the community, this time by making a contribution to the development of sports, proving once again to be a socially responsible company. Associated with Agrokor, one of the leading Croatian companies, Hajduk remains faithful to its tradition and retains the image of a Croatian national club always following top-line values. With the Agreement signed Hajduk has financially significantly strengthened and stabilized the club, ensuring considerable funds that will enable the club to focus on its primary activity and try to win the Croatian football championship. Agrokor has for the next two years ensured that its name and the name of its member companies (Jamnica d.d., Ledo d.d., Zvijezda d.d., Konzum d.d., Agrokor trgovina d.d., PIK Vinkovci d.d., Soland Pag d.d., Sojara d.d.) be displayed on all promotional materials and the outfits of Hajduk's players at all games the team will play in domestic and international competitions.
