The two-sided sweet Goleador which has been a cult item for Italians of all ages for 30 years is a new Official Partner for the National Team. Goleador will be involved on Friday 6th October as the Azzurri play FYR Macedonia in another important step on the way to the FIFA World Cup in Russia. 

“The Goleador brand has a direct link with football,” said CEO of Perfetti Van Melle Italia Holger Hartmann. “We’re really proud to be together with the National Team in a partnership born of common values such as passion, determination, fraternity and team spirit. Our support for the team is an opportunity to look at football again as a sport based on loyalty, healthy fun and a way to share and show support. All for one, Goleador for all!”

“The support of the fans for the Azzurri shirt is important motivation for achieving any objective,” said FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio. “For this, we are happy to have a well-loved brand such as Goleador as a sponsor, it’s always been a symbol of sharing and passion for football which is a sport that can unite generations, especially when Italy play.” 

To celebrate the sponsorship, Goleador will change the packaging of its products so that the displays now show images symbolic of the Italian National Team.
