SPAR is involved in sponsoring many sporting activities through the individual efforts of independent retailers, wholesalers and the combined sponsorship of European Athletics on an international basis. Internationally, SPAR has been the principal sponsor of European Athletics since 1996, becoming synonymous with the sport in this period. Athletics is a sport where personal endeavour is combined with team participation to achieve success. Honour and pride in winning the discipline remain athletes’ main incentive. SPAR identifies with this principle which is reflective of our highly successful retailers who continue to develop the brand through the formats and ensure that consumers enjoy shopping at SPAR. The European Athletics events of which SPAR is principal sponsor comprise three elements - indoor/outdoor and cross-country - spanning the entire year of competition. SPAR works with the national partner in each country to develop maximum awareness of the sponsorship and the critical link with individual athletes who are also customers of independent retailers. SPAR is proud to be involved with European Athletics, an organisation which strives to bring passion and enthusiasm for their sport to viewers, spectators and participants.
