Statoil shirts in great demand

February 4, 2002, 14:15 CET

The sports clubs in Norway which will be receiving team shirts from Statoil have now been drawn. Roughly 2000 sports clubs were in the draw for the shirts, which will be delivered in April.

This distribution is part of a collaboration agreement between Statoil and the Norwegian Olympic Committee and Confederation of Sports. Statoil is supporting young people participating in sports by giving shirts to soccer, handball, volleyball, indoor bandy and basketball teams.

"The response from youngsters involved in team sports has been overwhelming," says project manager Aina Sørhus in the promotion unit.

Winners will be notified by e-mail or letter.

A total of 5000 sports shirts will be distributed by the group on two separate occasions in 2002.

The deadline for the next round of applications is 15 June. The application form will be available on Statoil's web site for sponsorship at the beginning of May.
