Super League Greece and Panini are proud to announce a new exclusive multi-year agreement that appoints the publisher as the only company officially authorised to produce collectible products of Super League, the top-tier football Championship in Greece.
The license granted to Panini by Super League Greece, allows the publisher to develop and distribute official stickers collection, trading cards and other collectibles, based on Super League Greece trophies, logos, clubs, and players.
The agreement between Super League Greece and Panini starts from the current season, 2023-24, with the objective to deliver the first officially licensed products of Super League Greece to collectors and to all Greek football fans over the next few months, within an extended publishing programme.
Panini has a historic presence in Greece having distributed stickers and trading cards for decades through its consolidated local partners. This agreement will substantially enrich the product portfolio for children, collectors and supporters of all ages.
Katia Koxenoglou, Super League Greece Deputy President, said:
“We, at Super League Greece, are delighted to establish a cooperation with PANINI, as our exclusive officially licensed partner, following a unanimous Board of Directors decision. Football fans of all ages will soon add to their collections, stickers, trading cards and other collectibles. The long tradition of PANINI guarantees that the official Super League Greece collectibles will be highly sought after by collectors and fans alike.”
Elisabetta Mussini, Panini Group Licensing Director, said:
“We would like to express our gratitude to the President of the Super League Board of Directors Evangelos Marinakis who made this deal possible, to the Clubs and to the Super League Executives who worked closely with us to define the details of this agreement.
In parallel to our activities with the Super League, we will continue to work directly with the clubs on the development of further products and initiatives to promote Greek football both locally and internationally.
We believe that this deal also represents a great opportunity for our distribution partners and retailers who will be able to resell official licensed products branded Super League.”
