Grestel, through its brand Costa Nova, was challenged by Sport Clube Beira-Mar (the football club of Aveiro, where Grestel is based) to develop the commemorative medal for the centenary of this historic club.
The result is innovative - the medal, escaping the traditional metal model, is presented in ceramic (honoring the tradition of Aveiro in ceramic manufacturing), is filleted gold, and is dressed in yellow and black.
The launch of this commemorative piece happened on December 9th, at S.C. Beira-Mar's Christmas dinner. The medal can now be bought by fans at the Estádio Municipal de Aveiro on match days, members and non-members. COSTA NOVA and Grestel have been official sponsors of the Club for several years.
Developing a medal to commemorate Beira-Mar's centennial with our stoneware was a very rewarding challenge for us, we are very pleased with the final result.
