SPANNINGA sponsor of TEAM FRYSK speed skating team

It is with pleasure that we can announce that Spanninga will be official sponsor of the Team Frysk speed skating team for the 2020-2021 season. As a company, we are operating in the sportive sector. The sponsorship is therefore based on a shared interest in sports in general and on both our Frisian heritages in particular.

“For Spanninga, it is very important to support young athletes on their way to the top. In that case, it doesn’t matter if this is a sport in the bicycle field, or in another area. Besides, the speed skaters do their Summer training on the bike and in that way, there is definitely a match with our products. However, this match is not the main reason why we became a sponsor of Team Frysk,” says Feike Spanninga (owner of Spanninga).

Team Frysk started six years ago in Leeuwarden with educating speed skating talents in both the long track and marathon. It all begins by helping young talents at the start of their speed skating career, together with the local speed skating clubs. After this, the focus slowly moves from learning to performing. When the athletes are ready, they can follow their career elsewhere to truly make it to the top.
