The Tour de Pologne UCI WorldTour announces a renewed agreement with Lotos for the sponsorship of the best sprinter’s jersey and the best Polish rider’s classification. The symbol of this primacy will be fought by the best classified sprinters over the seven stages of the 78th edition.
Lotos, a state-owned company in the oil sector, has been committed to the enhancement of sports in Poland for many years. Besides sponsoring cycling and the Polish national football team, they’ve also been involved in supporting popular disciplines in the country, such as ski jumping. Lotos exports its products to 75 countries across the world and covers almost a third of the Polish fuel market, producing unleaded petrol, diesel, and aircraft fuel, as well as bitumen and lubricants for all kinds of vehicles, including army vehicles. As a leader company in the sector, it is showing its deep bond to its own origin, through this kind of partnership.
‘We are very happy that, as Grupa LOTOS S.A., we are the Official Sponsor of Tour de Pologne for another year. Thank you for the cooperation, commitment and high standards during the preparation of such a prestigious event, which is the 78th edition of the Tour de Pologne.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, we are still staying with our partners and supporting Polish sports, which convey many positive emotions. Poland will once again become the center of the cycling world and we hope that our cooperation will motivate Poles to take care of their health by engaging in this wonderful sport’, says Kinga Fedorowska, Marketing Director at Grupa LOTOS S.A.
