Starting from the 2020/2021 season, Gewiss becomes Official Sponsor of Cantù Basketball, also redeveloping their arena with Smart [PRO] 2.0 LED solutions


September 2020 – Starting this year, Cantù basketball will have two new partners supporting its sporting campaign:  GEWISS and Digital Sport Innovation, the project created to renew sport in our country. The partnership, covering both the Serie A1 Championship and the 2020 Italian Super Cup, also includes the complete redevelopment of the lighting system installed in the "PalaBancoDesio”, the Canturino club’s home arena. The relamping involves the replacement of the old installations with  Smart[PRO] 2.0 2+2 M LED devices. This system is compliant with the national lighting standards for TV coverage. "Our leadership in sports lighting is further enhanced by this prestigious collaboration,”

commented  Paolo Cervini, CEO of GEWISS . "The partnership with Pallacanestro Cantù was created under the aegis of Digital Sport Innovation, the GEWISS platform that allows sports clubs to upgrade their indoor and outdoor facilities, improve the quality of light and the safety of the athletes, and reduce energy consumption and related management costs. The Cantù players will therefore be able to count on modern, safe, efficient and sustainable facilities. What we have today is more than just collaboration; it is a match-up in which we play a major role for the innovation of all Italian, professional and amateur sport".

Andrea Mauri, CEO of Cantù Basketball, states: “For Cantù Basketball, this is a new venture in every aspect, both in terms of management and of the sport. In this process of general development, we are trying to launch multiple activities, focusing in particular on the new arena and other aspects: thanks to Gewiss, we will also focus on the present, with an intermediate phase involving the PalaDesio, our home for the next two years. For the present and the future, therefore, we have chosen Gewiss, to whom I extend a warm welcome

The Digital Sport Innovation project has already helped to bring the lighting quality and professionalism of GEWISS to numerous sports facilities around the country. A practical insight, which has enabled important results, starting with  greater energy savings and a significant reduction in system maintenance and operation costs.
