Another historical German football club in Arminia Bielefeld has chosen Macron as their technical partner, thus confirming and reinforcing again the already strong presence the Italian brand holds in the professional sport in Germany.
The team from Westphalia currently playing in the Bundesliga 2 and Macron have signed a multiannual agreement beginning from the 2020/21 season.
Arminia Bielefeld was founded in 1905 and boasts several appearances in the Bundesliga, a championship in which the team participated for the first time in 1970. They achieved excellent results in the early ’80s, followed later by more excellent achievements such as the two semifinals of the German Cup played consecutively in 2005 and 2006.
A historical curiosity surrounds their debut in the football world: the very first game of the Die Blauen in 1925, played against Preußen Münster was broadcasted on the German radio. The team’s large fan base is twinned with the fan base of Hannover 96’s, another club member of the Macron family.
