Passion for soccer counts on our energy
We sponsor the most traditional competition among nations in the world.
By sponsoring the Copa America 2011 Argentina, we strengthen the historic partnership we have with soccer, participating in the world's oldest competition of this sport. Meanwhile, we promote integration in the countries where we operate in Latin America and drive the energy of all soccer fans on the South American continent.
Our investment in sports goes far beyond brand exposure. We want to contribute to upbringing children and young people who value qualities such as discipline, ethics, and overcoming challenges. We also strive to turn sports into a tool to close the gap in the social differences there are in all countries where we have operations.

We have invested in sports since 1956
Our history of investments in sports began in 1956, when we associated our brand to the first edition of the Petrobras Brazilian Thousand Miles, a car race held in São Paulo. Since then, we have consolidated ourselves as one of the businesses that encourages sports the most in Latin America.
