Natixis and Racing 92 are pleased to announce that they have extended their longstanding partnership until 2024. Natixis has supported the club and its ambitions for almost 15 years in its capacity as official sponsor, accompanying its 15-a-side rugby team, the “Racing 92 Natixis Sevens” rugby team, its new women’s team, the training center and rugby schools

Natixis has been Racing 92’s partner and official sponsor since 2007 and today extends its collaboration with the club until 2024.

Natixis has supported the “Racing 92 Natixis Sevens” rugby team since it was set up in 2019 and is the team’s exclusive sponsor, chiming with Groupe BPCE’s broader support for sporting values as premium partner for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Natixis is also committed to supporting the Racing 92 women’s team, which aims to join the professional women’s rugby circuit, one of the fastest growing team sports worldwide. Its backing for a women’s team is also consistent with the company’s commitment to promoting gender equality in the workplace across all its business lines.

Additionally, Natixis firmly believes in the value of training for young people and as such pursues its assistance for the club’s training center and rugby schools.

Nicolas Namias, Chief of Executive Officer at Natixis, stated: “It is a pleasure to extend our partnership with Racing 92 until 2024. We share three fundamental beliefs with the club: loyalty, as our pledges are made for the long term; increasing women’s representation, which is a crucial societal challenge in both the workplace and professional sport; and training as we support and help the talents of the future grow. Both our clients and our staff can fully identify with the club’s strengths – collective intelligence, an entrepreneurial mindset and going the extra mile. These values are the driving forces for all our teams worldwide here at Natixis and we are all proud to support Racing 92.”

Jacky Lorenzetti, chairman of Racing 92 added: “We are delighted to continue this amazing adventure with our major partner Natixis until 2024. Extending our partnership shows the strength of the two entities and the passion we share, and we are convinced that the company will remain a dynamic partner for the club. Our aim is to keep on innovating and transforming the rugby experience in the greater Paris area and we are pleased to rely on Natixis to support us in our approach.”
