The management and players of AS Monaco Basketball were invited to the residence of the Minister of State on Friday, last week as part of the partnership agreement between the Government and the team, in terms of governance and communication.

The partnership aims to support the Club’s sports project, to allow the team to convey the “Monaco” message and to accompany it in its relations with its competitors, as well as with the national and international basketball governing bodies.

This annual meeting allows both parties to share their respective roles and work in order to further strengthen their ties and to present the entire “Roca Team” to the members of the Government.

During his speech, Minister of State Serge Telle encouraged the team before the Leaders Cup, which takes place from February 16 to 18, during which the Monegasques will put their title back into play.

He congratulated the players and the staff and concluded his speech by emphasising that the Government as well as Monegasques were very proud of their team, which represents with dignity the colours of the Principality on the European scene.

AS Monaco Basket is currently leader of Pro A and qualified for the 1/8th finals of the Basketball Champions League.
