GDF SUEZ Energie, the Italian arm of the GDF SUEZ Group, has become an official partner of the Italian Federation of Winter Sports (FISI) for 2012/13 season.

The sponsorship agreement will see the company support Italy’s men’s and women’s Nordic ski teams competing in various disciplines, including Nordic combined, jump, cross-country skiing and biathlon. Company branding will feature on the racing suits and thermal clothes of all athletes and team staff.

The deal covers the upcoming FIS Nordic World Ski Championships, which take place in Val di Fiemme, Italy from 20th February to 3rd March.

Valerio Camerano, chief executive of GDF SUEZ Energie, said: “Athletes’ continuous commitment, energy and tenacity in facing the challenges that sports reserves to them are the same on which GDF SUEZ founds its own strategy of growth.”

Flavio Roda, president of FISI, added: “We are particularly proud that a group leader, such as GDF SUEZ, has chosen the Italian Winter Sports Federation for its investments in sport marketing.”
