Welcoming Francesco Passaro: The Newest Member of the ellesse Family

Today, we are delighted to introduce Francesco Passaro as the newest member of the ellesse family, joining our roster of global sponsored athletes. Hailing from Perugia, Italy, Francesco brings a wealth of talent and passion for tennis to our brand, embodying the spirit of excellence and determination that defines ellesse.

Francesco’s journey to becoming an ellesse-sponsored player is a testament to the power of destiny and the serendipitous connections that bind us together. It all began in winter 2022 when we had the opportunity to witness Francesco’s remarkable skills firsthand at the ATP Next Gen tournament, where we were sponsoring the tournament for the next generation of tennis players. Little did we know that this encounter would mark the beginning of a special partnership.

During the finals of the tournament, one of our partners pointed out Francesco’s Italian heritage, specifically his roots in Perugia, the birthplace of ellesse founder Leonardo Servadio and the birthplace of our brand. This unique connection resonated deeply with Francesco and his family, forging a bond that would ultimately lead to his signing as an ellesse-sponsored player.

As we reflect on Francesco’s journey, it’s clear that his path to becoming an ellesse athlete is a beautiful full circle story. From the streets of Perugia to the global stage, Francesco embodies the spirit of perseverance, passion, and unwavering belief in one’s dreams.

Francesco shares his excitement about joining ellesse, saying, “I am so happy to be a member of the ellesse family.” His advice to young tennis players is equally inspiring: “Have fun, strive to achieve, and always believe in your dreams.” With Francesco as our newest global sponsored player, the future of tennis looks brighter than ever.

Join us in welcoming Francesco Passaro to the ellesse family as we embark on this exciting new chapter together. With his talent, dedication, and Italian heritage, Francesco is the perfect embodiment of our brand values and the spirit of sport that unites us all. We can’t wait to see him shine on and off the tennis court, representing ellesse with pride and passion.
