Brands that also deserve a trophy
A great sporting event is practically impossible to carry out without the help of certain sponsors who will allow attendees to enjoy the facilities, services and staff willing to make the hours they spend at the event more pleasant. In the case of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, this grateful and immeasurable help can be translated into hats and sun creams, newspapers, food and drink, apps, security guards or medical personnel. They are all basic ingredients for tennis players and spectators.
In this edition and with all the economic difficulties that the pandemic entails, the tournament management has never stopped thanking all the sponsors for their support and hard work, new ones and those who have been part of previous editions, since the tournament has been able to proceed without any troubles. These brands, once again, have lived up to the expectations. They deserve a trophy similar to the one Rafa Nadal bit last Sunday.
Now it’s time to disassemble fences, bars, information panels or stands. To keep the memory of a competition that he has left, one more year,a good taste in the mouth of the tennis players who have not stopped to strive on the court. And also to all those fans who have relied on hundreds of workers who, on behalf of almost thirty sponsors, have done everything possible to make the organization of the event professional, safe and sustainable. And think about next year. Because all those brands, together with Nadal, Tsitsipas and company, will return to RCTB-1899 to continue making the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell a beautiful and critical event.
