La Marina and the Club Baloncesto Benidorm have reached a collaboration agreement where the Shopping Centre becomes a sponsor of the Benidorm Basketball Club.

Gerry Martin President of the Community of Owners of CC La Marina and Ambrosio Martínez President of CB Benidorm at the signing of the agreement.

The Club Baloncesto Benidorm (founded in 1982) has a long history that grows year after year. The Club currently has 16 federated teams in its sporting structure, including more than 200 players in the Club's discipline and around another 100 in the school games. 

The Club's first team, the senior men's team, competes in the FEB (Spanish Basketball Federation) in the prestigious EBA League, competing with teams from the Valencian Community and Murcia, the men's basketball team that competes at the highest level in the Marina Baixa area.

With this agreement, the first Men's U18 team will be called "CC La Marina Club Baloncesto Benidorm" (one of the Club's big bets for this season) and will wear the t-shirt with the logo of the Shopping Centre. Among other actions and activities, the CC La Marina will have posters on the central court of the Palacio de Deportes "L'illa de Benidorm", where most of the teams, both junior and senior, play their home games.

Gerry Martin from Resolute Asset Management: "It is a great pleasure for us at CC La Marina to be able to sponsor a major local sports club, one of which is extremely well known within the local community and plays in a top league.  I am looking forward to following their success in the forthcoming season." 

The president of Benidorm Basketball Club, Ambrosio Martinez, has expressed "We are very satisfied and happy that a shopping centre of the importance of La Marina Shopping Centre has trusted in the Benidorm Basketball Club to contribute to the promotion, sponsorship and development of the sport, as well as to be present at the games of the first team and the rest of the junior teams".

Both La Marina and CB Benidorm hope that this collaboration, which begins this season and whose objective is the crucial task of promoting and supporting sport and the practice of sport through basketball, will lay the foundations for an essential and lasting collaboration between the two entities.
