Sport is part of Stoiximan from the beginning. We are happy and grateful for all the collaborations we have developed in this large family of Greek sports. From Lefteris, who for us is now one of the longest-standing friends of Stoiximan in collaboration with 2014, PAOK FC, where our joint history begins in 2017 and was marked by the conquest of the double, to the numerous Greek team Stoiximan Tokyo Team, with 17 athletes and 2 national teams. For us, this relationship is far beyond marketing: it is a constant, daily, human support of athletes and teams, those who strive to achieve the impossible every day, those who give us great moments of fun, pride or both . Those who inspire, those who unite. “If the people of sports marketing have a responsibility, it is to promote fair play, those values ​​that make every game better.”
