The Lucentum Baloncesto Alicante Foundation (FLBA) and the HLA Hospital Group have renewed the sponsorship agreement for the 2021-22 season. In this way, the first men’s team of the entity will maintain its already more than recognizable nomenclature of the HLA Alicante in a LEB Gold season.
Next season will be the sixth consecutive campaign in which the HLA Group and the Lucentian entity go hand in hand in the club’s project. Likewise, the Oftalvist group, a leading ophthalmological group in Alicante and in the rest of Spain, joins the Lucentum Foundation project as a sponsor.
In the previous five seasons in which the Lucentino club has competed under the name of HLA they have achieved a promotion to LEB Gold, a LEB Silver Cup, a LEB Silver Cup final, as well as a Princess Cup final and a semifinal for the promotion to Liga Endesa.
At the event in which the agreement was sealed, the Medical Director of HLA Vistahermosa, Dr. Concha Giner; the president of the Lucentum Foundation, Antonio Gallego; the vice president of the Lucentum Foundation, Daniel Adriasola; and Dr. Pedro Tañá, national medical director of Oftalvist
Antonio Gallego, president of the Lucentum Foundation, stated that “we are very grateful to Grupo HLA for its sixth season accompanying us on this beautiful path that we started at LEB Plata and hopefully it will take us to ACB. Of course now also grateful to the new support of Oftalvist that will give us a step forward and with which we hope to reach the highest possible levels in the new season “
Dr. Concha Giner has emphasized the pride of continuing to be the official sponsor of the team “since there are six years of upward trajectory and this year will be, if possible, more special since our colleagues from Oftalvist join this successful project”.
Dr. Pedro Tañá has commented: “” We are delighted to join a project like this, in line with our mission as a healthcare organization providing excellent ophthalmological medical services “
