EuroBasket 2013 sponsor Spar Slovenia presented a new basketball sticker album during a press conference on Thursday.
The album is a tribute to Slovenian basketball and EuroBasket 2013, the biggest sporting event in Slovenian history, and will be available in Spar supermarkets from 5 June.
Aiming to bring together different generations and strengthen the spirit amongst basketball fans, the album provides valuable information on Slovenian basketball and the upcoming EuroBasket.
It is divided into four subject areas: A review of the successes of Yugoslavian and Slovenian basketball; main milestones and events in Slovenian basketball; a presentation of the candidates for the Slovenian national team; and a presentation of EuroBasket 2013.
Iztok Rems, Secretary General of the Slovenian Basketball Federation, is convinced that the sticker album will be a success and will help to further promote basketball in the country.
"Spar Slovenija knows basketball well as they have been a sponsor of the Slovenian Basketball Federation for many years now. They have proved this again with this sticker album, which has been made in cooperation with the Slovenian Basketball Federation", he commented.
"We eagerly wait for EuroBasket 2013 to begin and I am convinced that people will collect the stickers with joy and be happy to read all the interesting facts. I checked it a couple of times now and I must admit, that I found some good information which brought back some memories."
