Team Vitality CEO, Nicolas Maurer spoke on the extension in a release:
“We are delighted that Orange is renewing its trust in the team after an incredible first-year partnership, during which we managed to exceed all the objectives that have been set with respect to the main areas of communication, business, and sports. As with other partners, it was, from now on, important for us to be able to project into the future with our major partner, and it is a great satisfaction for Team Vitality to extend this collaboration until 2021.”

This partnership continues to form part of a global approach where Orange aims to reach a community that consumes competitive media and entertainment other than through traditional channels.”
