Newport Logistics Fund has taken patronage of the Polonia Warsaw basketball team. The fund proudly supports a club with nearly 100 years of tradition.

Newport Logistics Fund, a Luxembourg-based fund investing in warehouse real estate in Europe, is supporting Polish sport. The fund has become a patron of Polonia Warszawa – the men’s and women’s basketball teams. The teams have been in existence since 1925, and in their nearly 100-year history they have, among other achievements, won Polish Championships and for many years constituted the strength of Polish basketball.

Newport Logistics Fund plans to actively support various sports (including golf). The first formal cooperation established by the fund is a partnership with SKK Polonia Warszawa (women’s basketball section) and KKS Polonia Warszawa (men’s basketball section). The patronage will entail permanent financial support for both teams.

– “The choice of the Warsaw’s Polonia basketball sections was not a coincidence. These are teams with great tradition, which are approaching their 100th anniversary. It will be the perfect time to relate to the biggest successes of both teams. It is a great feeling to be able to become a Patron of Polonia Warsaw Basketball, to support the team and its further history!” – says Szymon Ostrowski Managing Director of Newport Logistics Fund. The agreement between the company and the club will come into effect at the beginning of February this year.

“We would like to proudly celebrate the centenary together with a large number of patrons. That is why we are encouraging institutions and individuals to choose patronage today – a conventional form of sport support that simultaneously fulfils modern CSR and ESG objectives. We are delighted that the Newport Logistics Fund is joining our team. We hope that this will be a fruitful and long-term cooperation,” says Łukasz Tusiński, president of both basketball sections of Polonia Warszawa.

Currently, the female team – SKK Polonia Warszawa – competes at the highest level of the competition in Poland, where they managed to reach 7th place last year. The men’s section – KKS Polonia Warszawa – finished last season without defeat and was promoted to the 1st league. Polonia Warsaw Sports Club is one of the traditional symbols of Warsaw, Mazovia and Polish sport. It was founded in 1911, with the basketball section established 14 years later. Such Polish sportsmen and sportswomen as Irena Szewińska, Władysław Komar, Waldemar Marszałek and Władysław Szczepaniak come from Polonia.
