Esportes da Sorte was recently announced as the new master sponsor of Palmeiras women’s football. However, the company now intends to enter the race to become the club’s men’s football partner.

Darwin Henrique da Silva Filho, CEO of the Esportes da Sorte group, confirmed the information. Currently, the spaces are occupied by FAM and Faculdade das Américas.

“We were already located in large centers in the country, but we saw the capital of São Paulo as a watershed for our purposes”, he said in an interview with GE.

The prospects are the best possible, as we want to be long-term partners with Palmeiras.

“We have already made clear our interest in increasing the partnership in the future for the men’s team, with more investments, as today the contract only covers a few properties”, added the group’s CEO.

Sponsorship of R$20 million for Palmeiras women’s football

The value of the agreement between Palmeiras and Esportes da Sorte for the women’s game was not disclosed. However, the sports media revealed that the team should receive 20 million reais annually.
