SPONSORSHIP

When you say Alpine Pro, most people think of a Czech company producing functional outdoor clothing and original collections for the Czech Olympic Team. But there is a lot more to the Alpine Pro brand, which celebrated 20 years on the market in 2014. An essential part of the corporate strategy is also sponsoring activities not only in the field of sports.


PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CZECH OLYMPIC COMMITTE (COC) ALPINE PRO AN OFFICIAL PARTNER OF COC SINCE 2009
Rio Rio de Janeiro 2016

For Alpine PRO, 2016 was the year of the Olympic Games emblem. For the third time now, Alpine PRO designed and produced a collection for the Czech sportsmen and women. This year’s motif was a figure completed by the signature of one of the most famous Czechoslovak sportsmen Emil Zátopek.

Sochi Sochi 2014

The inspiration for the design of the Olympic collection came from the first Czechoslovak stamp, designed in 1918 by Alfons Mucha. The central motif was the leaves of linden trees, which is a national symbol. For the first time in history fans had a chance to purchase first kidswear Olympic collection. The originality of the clothing in Sochi was stylishly highlighted by the gold-medal-winning Eva Samková and her fans, who after her triumph wore the jacket with golden lining inside out.

London LondOn 2012

Designers of the Olympic collection for the Summer Games in London incorporated motifs of the famous Kupka's abstract work Amorpha - Fugue in Two Colours, which symbolizes the desire to overcome limits. Along with the jackets, which changed colour in response to water, the athletes received eye-catching boots that caught worldwide attention at the opening ceremony. Golden medals were proudly won Špotáková and Kulhavý, and silver medals by the tennis couple Hradecká-Hlaváčková.

Vancouver Vancouver 2010

Alpine Pro is the first Czech company to have the honour to design and produce clothing for the Czech Olympic sportsmen. Immediately, the first collection attracts attention. Abstract, eye-catching motif at Vancouver earned Alpine Pro an award for the best Olympic collection (The Huffington Post). The athletes themselves, including figure skater Tomáš Verner, cross country skier Kateřina Neumannová and rower Ondřej Synek, participated in the development of clothing which benefited from unique materials gained from coffee and bamboo. Products of the Olympic collection could also be for the first time in history purchased by fans.

BIATHLON
PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CZECH BIATHLON UNION WE ARE COOPERATING WITH CZECH BIATHLON SINCE 2008

Before the fairy tale named Czech Biathlon dazzled hundreds of thousands of fans and took a surreal turn in medals won, Alpine Pro supported the entire biathlon team. And we continue to do so, expanding the cooperation. Thus, we dress the sportsmen and their coaches, as well as the whole youth base along with the implementation team. Athletes have a complete set of functional clothing for spring/summer and autumn/winter together with accessories such as suitcases.

Canoeists
Partner of the Czech Union of Canoeists

In June 2016, Alpine Pro became a partner of the Czech Union of Canoeists. It has recently started to provide clothes for water slalom racers and canoeists, including the Olympic medallists Josef Dostál, Jiří Prskavec, Jan Štěrba, Daniel Havel and Lukáš Trefil as well as the winners of multiple world championship medals, Martin Fuksa, Kateřina Kudějová and others. “We provide the athletes with uniforms and sportswear for competitions and training sessions. We greatly appreciate the new cooperation, not only because those sports have currently been very popular and on the rise, but also because we strongly believe in the successful Czech future in this field of sports. We also want to be by their side for further successes, not only the current ones in Rio but perhaps also in Tokyo,” said Václav Hrbek, the company founder and owner.

Sance
WE SUPPORT THE PROJECT “ŠANCE”

The project Šance (Chance) helps street children to get back on their feet. In doing so, we are guided by the motto: “There is no art in feeding someone in need, but there is art in teaching them how to earn for food.” In 1995, László Sümegh took a plastic bag and went into the street to help boys and girls growing up without their parents. This laid the foundation for the project Šance. As part of a long-term partnership with the project Šance we regularly donate Alpine Pro clothing and shoes to the young people in difficult situation, which they themselves often did not even cause.
