Spar gets on board for 2018 European Championships

European Championships mascots Bonnie and Berlino

Spar International has been named as an Official Partner of the 2018 European Championships, which take place in Glasgow and Berlin from August 2 to 12 this year.

The 11-day celebration of world-class sport will see Glasgow and Scotland host the aquatics, cycling, golf, gymnastics, rowing and triathlon events while Berlin looks after athletics.

Tobias Wasmuht, Spar International Managing Director, said: “Spar is committed to being a responsible retailer and encouraging our customers to make healthy lifestyle choices.

“We are delighted to sponsor the joint European Championships in Glasgow and Berlin and wish all the competitors well.”

The mascots of both Glasgow 2018 and Berlin 2018 – Bonnie the Seal and Berlino the Bear, who stole the show at the 2009 Athletics World Championships – joined forces to celebrate Spar’s sponsorship by popping into a store in the east end of Glasgow.
