The name of Euskaltel will return to the peloton in 2020, as ProTeam Fundación-Orbea have announced that the Basque telecommunications company has agreed to join the team as a main sponsor for four years.

Itzulia Basque Country, the team's home race which runs from April 6-11, will be the team's debut under the new sponsorship. From that point onwards, the team will be known as Euskaltel-Euskadi, as the long-running top-level team was known until its dissolution in 2013.
