Banco Macro, Official Sponsor of the Argentine Hockey Confederation

Buenos Aires, November 28, 2013. It is with great pleasure that Banco Macro announces the entering of a sponsorship agreement with the Argentine Hockey Confederation for the next four years. The agreement provides for the sponsorship of women’s and men’s field and ice national hockey teams in all their tournaments and categories.

"We are very proud to accompany the Argentine Hockey Confederation, we are convinced that their teams’ values are closely linked to Banco Macro’s corporate culture, such as team work, loyalty, excellence and fair play", stated Milagro Medrano, Institutional Relations Manager of Banco Macro, highlighting that "we are very pleased about this agreement, hockey has become a professional sport with a strong presence in the Argentine Provinces and worldwide".

Banco Macro will accompany Las Leonas in the first edition of the Hockey World League Final to be played from November 30 to December 8 in the Province of Tucumán. In this tournament Las Leonas lead by Luciana Aymar, will play in Pool B together with the teams of New Zealand, Australia and China.

Four Olympic medals and two World Cups evidence the path of a team that for more than a decade has showed a great performance.

Banco Macro also sponsors the Men’s Hockey Team, which is within the world hockey elite, which in 2014 will play at the most prestigious international tournaments: World League Final, World Cup and Champions Trophy.

"We consider that sports operate as a very significant bond in communities and society at large. We are convinced that corporations, apart from the profits they may make, must support the communities where they conduct business", states Milagro Medrano. It is worth noticing that 79% of Banco Macro´s branches are located in Argentine Provinces. There are currently 135 districts where Banco Macro, through its branches and ATMs, is the only banking institution.
