ABEO, a world leader in sports and leisure equipment, today announces that its subsidiaries Janssen-Fritsen, Spieth Gymnastics and Gymnova have adapted and extended their existing agreements with the European Union of Gymnastics (UEG) until 2024, as official apparatus suppliers, in order to consolidate a partnership over the long term.
The resulting agreement sees Janssen-Fritsen, Spieth Gymnastics and Gymnova reappointed as official gymnastics equipment partners for all UEG events, including the European Gymnastics Championships. With its 50 federation members, the European Union of Gymnastics is a sports organisation that reaches beyond the borders of political Europe and supports the ideas of a united gymnastics nation.
UEG President Farid Gayibov highlights the importance of this unity: “In the past we have worked well together and now it is time to take our ambitions to the next level. By granting more favourable conditions to our members, we wish to increase the popularity of our sport throughout Europe. This can only be achieved by working together.”
ABEO Group CEO Olivier Estèves said: “We are particularly proud that our partnership with the UEG has been renewed for a further 7 years. This decision, based on a solid collaboration built on trust and reliability, confirms the leading position of our gymnastics equipment brands.”
