Team NIPPO DELKO One Provence unveils itself
Team NIPPO DELKO One Provence is changing!
The novelty is indeed notorious on the side of the riders of Marseille in 2020….
First of all, Team Delko Marseille Provence becomes Team NIPPO DELKO One Provence.
The arrival of the Japanese partner NIPPO, whose main activities are the construction, manufacture and sale of bitumen, will mark a special collaboration in the run-up to the Olympic Games in Tokyo and for the development of Japanese cycling.
In naming, NIPPO is followed by DELKO, Les Nouveaux Garages, a loyal partner, and One Provence, the Territory’s new promotional brand.
All the local authorities have also affirmed their support for a project that everyone wants to win:
- The City of Marseille
- The Metropolis Aix-Marseille-Provence
- The Bouches-du-Rhône Department
- The South Region
The logo will also change and will now be represented by a badge and filled with a particular design also displayed in the team kit, the sailor jersey (« la marinière ») !
Like the character Escartefigue in Marcel Pagnol’s famous film Marius, the riders’ tunic is adorned with navy blue and white stripes.
The emphasis is therefore placed on Provence and its heritage.
Like cosmopolitan Marseille, Team NIPPO DELKO One Provence will cultivate both its openness to the world and its Provençal origin…
