Coritiba has unveiled online betting and entertainment company MarjoSports as its main shirt sponsor for the 2020 season.

MarjoSports served as a back-of-shirt and shorts sponsor for Coritiba during the club’s promotion-winning Serie B campaign in 2019.

The company has now upgraded its deal to assume front-of-shirt logo placement. The deal adds to MarjoSports’ shirt sponsorship portfolio in Brazil, with the company having struck an agreement with Goiás last September.

Meanwhile, fellow Campeonato Brasileiro Série A football club Athletico Paranaense has extended its long-running kit supplier deal with UK sportswear manufacturer Umbro.

Athletico Paranaense has signed a new three-year deal with Umbro, which has supplied the club’s kit since 1997.

The deal is one of the longest-running in Brazilian football. Since partnering with Umbro, Athletico has won the Brasileirão Série A in 2001, the Copa Sudamericana in 2018 and the Copa do Brasil in 2019.
