Endesa and the ACB: a Historic Partnership in Spanish Basketball

 
 

 
Endesa and the Spanish Basketball Clubs Association (ACB) reached an agreement in July 2011 making the company the sponsor, starting with the 2011-2012 season, of all official competitions organised by the ACB.
Three years later, in June 2014, Endesa Chairman Borja Prado and ACB Chairman Francisco Roca met to give the project continuity. This has consisted of the most important business agreement in the history of Spanish and European basketball. The agreement joins the two organisations for two additional years (until the end of the 2016-17 season).
As a result of this strategic alliance, the Endesa name has been given to the ACB competition, being the first commercial brand to achieve this in nearly three decades of the Basketball Clubs Association's history. The ACB League is now known as Endesa League, as is the season's opening tournament, the Supercopa, which is now called the Supercopa Endesa.
 
Greetings from Borja Prado and Eduardo Portela (ACB's previous Chairman) at the siging of the agreement, in July 2011:
