Deportivo Alavés reached an agreement to cooperate with NK Rudeš last November. The Croatian football club was founded in Zagreb in 1957 and is currently leader of the Druga HNL, the Croatian second division.

By signing this agreement, NK Rudeš becomes a strategic partner of Alavés in the Balkan region. This alliance between Deportivo Alavés and NK Rudeš is of a sporting, financial, organisational and administrative nature and is valid for the next ten years with an option for renewal at the end of this period.

The Baskonia-Alavés Group, owner of Deportivo Alavés, will share its wide-ranging experience in sports management with the Balkan team. The Group will introduce and develop its methodology in resource generation (including marketing, communication, ticket sales and other aspects) as well as its sports performance methodology directed at the detection and development of young players in the Balkans, a region full of talent. The agreement also grants Deportivo Alavés preference on the acquisition of the rights of players from the NK Rudeš organisation as well as the option to sign players directly from NK Rudeš.

The agreement will be presented in public on Friday at 13.00 at a press conference in Zagreb, Croatia. The two entities will be represented by the president of NK Rudeš and Har¡tz Kerejeta, General Manager of the Baskonia-Alavés Group.

In this way, Deportivo Alavés and NK Rudeš will seal a strategic alliance that allows the clubs to advance with the dynamic growth they have both embarked on. Undoubtedly, this is a further step in the growth and internationalisation of Deportivo Alavés and the Baskonia-Alavés Group.
