ORLEN Lietuva to continue as the general sponsor of Žalgiris


The sponsorship program of Public Company ORLEN Lietuva for the year 2019 continues to focus on the sponsorship of sports: last week, the cooperation agreement between the only crude oil refinery in the Baltic States and Žalgiris Kaunas BC was signed for another year.

ORLEN Lietuva became the general sponsor of Žalgiris BC in spring of 2018. The support of the strong partner has been remunerated by the team in winning the 3rd place in the Euroleague Final Four, and becoming the Lithuanian Basketball League Champions for the 20th time.

‘Basketball is in the blood of our nation. It unites a number of generations’, told General Director of Public Company ORLEN Lietuva Michal Rudnicki. ‘We are happy to cooperate with the oldest national team which is the most successful basketball club in terms of trophies won. No doubt, we believe in the strength of this team and wish them the most remarkable success.’

Last Friday, over 100 employees of ORLEN Lietuva visited Žalgiris Arena to watch the triumphant match of the team in Eurolegue.

‘Joint undertakings with the strongest Lithuanian companies are one of the main pursuits of our organization. We are glad about the cooperation with ORLEN Lietuva which started in the previous season as well as about further extension of our alliance. Working together we can move towards achievement of the highest possible goals’, underlined Paulius Motiejūnas, General Manager of Žalgiris Kaunas.

ORLEN Lietuva is one of the best known companies with considerable impact on the Lithuanian economy. History of the company evidences the whole range of business awards serving as an expression of the international recognition of its operations and products.

The largest national tax payer and one of the major Lithuanian exporters pays much attention to support of sports, cultural, educational and social projects both on the national as well as the local level.
