Towards Villa Cortese, the sponsors get "called up"
They will say goodbye to the Panthers before they leave for the away match on Saturday (live on Rai Sport 1 at 20.30) and they will meet at the Zoppas Arena to talk about the future.
Being near the top places on the table halfway through the season means a lot, for the club, for the team, but mainly for the city. That's what came out in the last days from the contacts between Spes president Giovanni Lucchetta and the companies that are connected to the Panthers: "The results of the team have generated a lot of excitement and many told us to make full use of this moment and put solid bases for the future." Says president Lucchetta who continues: "To be able to analyze where we are and where we can go the club and sponsors will meet tonight at the ZoppasArena." The meeting will also give the cance to the sponsors that support Spes to say goodbye to the players before their trip to castellanza where on Saturday 12th February, at 20.30 they are going to meet MC-Carnaghi Villa Cortese. Afterwards it will be an occasion to discuss all the important things: "It will be a chance to have a view of the complete situation created in these years, also in terms of popular participation, which is well proved by the emotions of last Sunday's match against Pesaro. It will also be the chance to appreciate the positive run in this season and to have a look at all the critical problems that are presented to a team like ours and to know on whom we can count for the future. If there is going to be a historical turn in our sports story it is going to start tonight."
The match against Villa Cortese will be live on Raisport 1 and will also be live on BluRadio Veneto. The players are ready for this high level clash. The players which had flu problems in the past weeks are now completely healed. The only one who has flu is the coach, Dragan Nesic. Despite that he will be on thebench in castellanza. Tomorrow morning the team is going to have a training session at the PalaBorsani in order to feel the court before the match that will be very important for the Italian Cup, since this round of the championship is going to decide the pairings.
