The company Luka Koper signed the first sponsorship agreement with the Olympic Committee of Slovenia on the 14th April 1998. Since that date the Slovenian sportsmen and sportswomen brought several Olympic medals. Most probably the Slovenian collection of Olympic recognitions will increase this year as some of our sports people belong to the world’s top. This is why we decided to extend the cooperation with the Olympic Committee for another four years.
On the 22nd April 2008 the solemn signature of the sponsorship agreement among Luka Koper and the Olympic Committee of Slovenia took place – in this way Luka Koper is taking over the role of general sponsor for the period Peking 2008 to London 2012.
“For Luka Koper who is offering services on the international market the recognition and good image of our country is very important. This is why we are so proud of the good results of our sportsmen and sportswomen, who are indirectly increasing our business opportunities. Luka Koper is a successful company that has to give proof of his excellence in a tough international environment and in this perspective we are similar to our athletes. Thus we can understand them and help them,” said Mr. Robert Časar, president of the Management Board of Luka Koper. Mr. Janez Kocjančič, president of the Olympic Committee of Slovenia added: “The best of the sport meets the best of the economy.”
Mr. Matic Osovnikar, the fastest Slovene, was present at the agreement conclusion as Luka Koper is sponsoring this extraordinary athlete. We wish a lot of success and luck to Matic and to all of our Slovenian representatives at the Olypmic games in Peking.
