Amsterdam Pirates, the underdog team, on Sunday beat the big favorite Curaçao Neptunus in a best-of-seven series with a 4-3 win.
The Amsterdam team had to start this season from scratch after their main sponsor withdrew and many players left. Utilus decided to stick with Amsterdam Pirates and step in as sponsor. We at Utilus believe in long term relationships, as well as in the interplay between elite sports and business excellence.
In response to the victory, Coach Mervin Gario told national broadcaster NOS: ‘Be honest, be yourself. That’s how you build a team.’ Many congratulations, Amsterdam Pirates. The Utilus team is very proud of you!
