Vila Velha de Ródão Sports and Recreation Centre and Celtejo establish partnership

Last July 18th, the Great Hall of the Vila Velha de Ródão municipal building provided the setting for the formal signing of a protocol between Vila Velha de Ródão’s Sports and Recreation Centre {Centro Desportivo Recreativo e Cultural de Vila Velha de Ródão (CDRC)} and Celtejo – Empresa de Celulose do Tejo, S.A. 

This protocol aims to provide financial support to the association’s football academy for a stipulated period of three years. According to António Carmona, the chairman of the CDRC, there are over 60 young athletes attending the academy, and “this support is crucial in allowing us to help develop the sporting abilities of these youngsters in our municipality. 

The club structure entails various different financial aspects which must be reconciled by the board, and it is this funding – alongside the support we have always received from the Vila Velha de Ródão City Council – which helps us to continue our good work.” 

Representing the company Celtejo, José António Nogueira Santos states that “it’s very important for us to be able to contribute towards developing these young players within our community”. 

As well as operating dynamically within its sector, Celtejo is committed to forge long lasting relationships with the surrounding communities by working in partnerships and providing support for a range of activities undertaken by the most diverse institutions. Since the venue chosen for this document to be signed was the Great Hall at the Vila Velha de Ródão municipal building, both signatories highlighted the excellent work done by the city council to improve the community. 

It is with great pleasure that I see the synergies created here today, which will directly benefit our youths and encourage them to play sports.

Luís Pereira, the mayor of Vila Velha de Ródão, declared
