Sports sponsoring at MAN
Motivation, team spirit and efficiency: What distinguishes top athletes comes naturally for those at MAN as well. That's why our commitment for team and motorsports has started many years ago. As a sponsor, we ensure that the bus of a football team is as top notch as the team itself, and the equipment of winter- and motorsports professionals is always where it is needed.
MAN sponsors six Bundesliga clubs in Germany. FC Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, VfL Wolfsburg, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Hamburger SV and FC Augsburg all travel in an MAN team bus. MAN also partners the current French champion, Paris Saint-Germain as well as the current Swiss champion, FC Basel 1893.
Since 2011, MAN has been a partner of the German League team, FC Bayern Basketball, its team bus offering ample leg room for the tall athletes.
Special solutions are also needed as part of winter sports sponsoring. In this case, MAN ensures that the equipment used by the national biathlon and cross-country ski teams arrives punctually at the intended venue, even in extreme weather conditions. Thanks to a special wax trailer, the skiers can also use the MAN TGX as a wax truck.
Sports Sponsorship in Motor Sport
MAN has been supporting the EKS Performance AB team and Mattias Ekström since 2014 with semitrailer tractors for the transportation of their racing vehicles.
Furthermore, MAN is a long-time commercial vehicle partner of Audi Sport, transporting DTM and LMP vehicles and the full racing equipment as well.
