AS Monaco Basketball announced on Tuesday their partnership with Groupe Michel Pastor for the ongoing 2023/24 season.

The Monegasque business has become the Premium Partner of the Roca Team for the duration of the 2023/24 Betclic Elite, Coupe de France and Euroleague campaigns. The partnership, which involves the affiliates of the group, including the Centre Immobilier Pastor, took effect in Wednesday’s Betclic Elite victory over Saint-Quentin.

Jean-Baptiste Pastor, the Administrative President of the Group, reacted to the signing of the partnership, saying, “Team spirit, competitiveness, and going above and beyond: these values incarnated by the group these past years showed themselves in sensational style last season.”

Yefimov: “It’s brilliant to have the support of one of the major actors in the Monegasque community”

Pastor continued, “The first French title victory, as well as the historic participation in the Euroleague Final Four, evidence the quality of the strategy put in place by the Roca Team’s management for the durable construction of a top-level side. We have also shared these values within our organisation for the past 40 years. Perpetuating our common quest for excellence, our partnership is logical.”

The Roca Team’s General Manager, Oleksiy Yefimov, one of the major influences in the Principality club’s meteoric rise, has also commented on the signing of the partnership.

“It’s brilliant to have the support of one of the major actors in the Monegasque community, an entity that we can always count on and with whom we share common values,” he began.

The Ukrainian General Manager continued, “This will be a win-win partnership for both the Roca Team and the Groupe Michel Pastor in terms of visibility and growth. Together, we will create sensational moments that are now experienced under the name ”Royal Hoops. I am convinced that this partnership is only the first in a long, fruitful and mutually beneficial collaboration that will last for seasons to come.”
