A number of Europe's leading athletics meetings have been held on Conica tracks in recent years so we have known for a long time, and at firsthand, how good their products are. I am sure this will be a very productive partnership for our sport as both Conica and European Athletics have the same core values including a dedication and devotion to developing our wonderful sport with both of us also committed to making athletics more sustainable,” said European Athletics President Dobromir Karamarinov.
“The cooperation with European Athletics is fully aligned with our corporate strategy, especially as we have started to focus even more strongly on international expansion in the sports and leisure sectors this year," commented Conica Chief Commercial Officer Lara Guillod.

“This is the latest in a series of Partnership Agreements that European Athletics have signed during 2022 and once again shows the strength of our brand and the commercial value it holds, especially in the wake of our hugely successful European Athletics Championships in Munich this summer that we can proudly say was the best ever,” said European Athletics CEO Christian Milz.
