Winmau, the world’s leading darts brand, announced today it is to extend its sponsorship of Oliver Ferenc, Serbia’s number one dart player, for a further three years.
Ferenc, who is also currently listed as 19th in the World Darts Federation (WDF) rankings, is the country’s reigning and nine times back-to-back national champion.
His relationship with Winmau began back in 2011. Last year the company announced it would deepen its involvement with darts in the country by also renewing its sponsorship of the Darts Federation of Serbia (DFS), which adopted the Blade 5 dartboard for all events and Winmau as its brand of choice.
“The DFS is the driving force behind the game in Serbia,” says Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director, Ian Flack. “In Oliver they have shown how the country can produce truly world-class players. He has dominated the national darts scene for over a decade and has been an inspiration for thousands of other players to take up the sport. His dedication towards expanding the popularity of the global game exemplifies the spirit of the Winmau brand.”
Oliver added: “The quality of darts in Serbia is getting better all the time. I have been lucky to win nine national titles, but each year the competition gets stronger as new players come onto the scene and the quality of darts increases. Having the backing of Winmau makes me tremendously proud and spurs me on to keep pushing the boundaries of my game as well.”
The Winmau range is available throughout Serbia and the surrounding countries via their exclusive distributor Rick's Technology - Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel: +381 (0)21 4 722 720, Fax: +381 (0)21 477 00 26, Website: www.pikadooprema.com
