We’re delighted to announce that we are proud sponsors of RC The Bassets who are one of the largest rugby clubs based in The Netherlands.
As a growing company, and with head offices in Amsterdam, we are keen to support our local community and a sport that is also growing in popularity and size.
We feel a natural affiliation with the sport of rugby: with shared values such drive, passion and teamwork, it fits well with our own culture and ambitions.
We also confess to a more personal interest! As Peter Koomen, our Manager Director, reveals:
“From the age of 12 until I reached my ‘rugby career pinnacle’ in the top Dutch league at age 28, I played for RC The Bassets. I learnt such a lot from these experiences. The shared passion that unites the team and the discipline needed to achieve great results are things that have naturally translated into my adult professional life. I’d like to think that everyone at GLIMMA also shares these values. It’s an absolute privilege to now be in the position to give something back and to support up-and-coming sportsmen and women. We wish them every success this season.”
Ad Wijten from RC The Bassets adds:
“This is the second year that GLIMMA has supported our team. We are grateful to all our sponsors. Without this grassroots support, our team would not progress, but more importantly the individuals would not have the opportunity to develop important life skills. We’re delighted to be associated with a major international company such as yourselves.”
