Novartis nets FC Basel extension

Swiss soccer champions FC Basel have confirmed that local pharmaceutical company Novartis will remain their main sponsor through to 30th June 2021.

The renewal ensures that Novartis’ branding - which has appeared on FC Basel’s matchday shirts since 2004 - will remain front and centre for a further four seasons.

Bernhard Huesler, FC Basel’s president, expressed his pleasure at the continuation of the longstanding partnership.

FC Basel have won seven consecutive Swiss soccer championships, and currently sit 12 points clear at the top of the Swiss Super League.
