Fernando Paz, Head of Sponsorship LATAM at Klefer Sports Marketing, took stock of the first participation in the fair held between the 7th and 9th of February.

The executive also highlighted the importance of iGB Affiliate London, an event focused on the affiliate segment that took place in parallel with the last day of ICE London. “iGB was very interesting for us, it was booming”.

Fernando Paz also explained what motivated the company to be at ExCeL London. “I came to ICE to show foreign investors that they can invest (in Brazil) in the right way”, adding that the intention is to provide this advice to both foreign and domestic investors.

He also spoke about the company’s history: “Klefer is 40 years old, a very long history. The first sponsorship of Brazilian football was made by us, between Flamengo and Lubrax and lasted 25 years. Since then, our history has been very rich”, still mentioning the good relationship with the clubs: “we are always in touch, bringing opportunities. And this has been a gateway for bets in Brazil”.
