The Dutch Lottery has extended its partnership with TeamNL until 2020. This means that the Dutch Lottery will be linked to the 850 best top athletes from the Netherlands and 28 sports federations that are marketing partners of TeamNL.
A happy, healthy and athletic Netherlands
Arno de Jong, Marketing Director of the Dutch Lottery is very content with the partnership: ‘As a Dutch Lottery, we are there for society. We stand for a happy, healthy and athletic Netherlands. Sport and TeamNL have a major role to play in this. With this partnership we strengthen our connection with sport and society’, he said.
Focus on four sports
As part of the partnership with TeamNL, the Dutch Lottery focuses on four sports, namely athletics, swimming, cycling and handball. In these four sports, the Dutch Lottery will try to strengthen the sports. The cooperation with handball did not yet exist and is new. The Dutch Lottery will be placed on the shirt of the TeamNL handball ladies and gentlemen.
The power of top handball
Sjors Röttger, director of the Dutch Handball Association, is proud of its connection to the Dutch Lottery. “It says something about the power of top handball that the Dutch Lottery chooses to be on the shirt of our national teams ladies and gentlemen. We think it’s a great compliment.’
VIP fan experience
To celebrate the new partnership, all handball clubs have a chance to win a VIP fan experience in the women’s international Netherlands-Russia on June 1st this year. ‘We want the handball club there with the best TeamNL supporters to encourage our ladies’, Sjors Röttger said.
The close bond between the Dutch Lottery and NOC NSF
The Dutch Lottery and the NOC NSF have a close bond. Every year, the Dutch Lottery donates more than 40 million euros to the sport. Gerard Dielessen, director of NOCNSF said that the sports federation is very content with the fact that the Dutch Lottery is also a partner of team NL. Together they make the sport stronger, not only because the number of members increases but also because it supports the athletes of Team NL.
