Ramondino-Derthona, the great story together continues

Emotions, victories and great results: the Bertram Derthona-Marco Ramondino duo brought the Club to the highest level of national basketball in the space of five seasons. An ascent resulting from daily work, ambition and the desire to grow together. A common story that will continue: it's official renewal of the head coach's contract until 2026.

“I would like to thank Dr. Beniamino Gavio, Marco Picchi, Ferencz Bartocci and the entire Derthona Basket organization for this great certificate of esteem – Marco Ramondino's first words after the renewal -. My first thought is for the staff members and our players for the great work they are doing: thanks to them we are experiencing a truly exciting season. At the same time they give us the opportunity to look to the future with confidence".

Arriving in Tortona in October 2018, Ramondino won the LNP Old Wild West Super Cup in 2019 and achieved promotion to Serie A in June 2021. In the two years in the top flight, Derthona reached a Coppa Italia final and a playoff semi-final Scudetto and currently occupies third position in the standings in the current season.

“Being the coach of this Club for five seasons fills me with pride for what we have managed to achieve and gives me a great sense of responsibility for the challenges that await us. The biggest are maintaining and consolidating our identity, cultivating the ambition to improve ourselves every day and forging an ever stronger bond with the people of Tortona and the rest of the territory that we have the honor of representing. For me and my family – concluded Ramondino – there couldn't have been a better choice: we are happy to be able to continue together with the Club".

With the renewal of coach Ramondino, the Club lays an important foundation for the present and the future. The great common history continues.
