Folletto hoovers up Parma extension

29 Jan 2014

Italian vacuum cleaner manufacturer Vorwerk Folletto has extended its sponsorship deal with Serie A soccer side Parma.

The company has had the logo of its eponymous Folletto brand on the front of Parma’s playing shirts for the last two years.

The latest deal extends the contract by a further year, to the end of the 2014/15 season.

Financial details have not been released but the deal is likely to be worth a low seven-figure sum.

The club is celebrating its 101st anniversary this year. It finished tenth in Serie A last season and currently sits seventh after 21 games this season.
