Dekra extends with DFB

German automotive services company Dekra has opted to extend its partnership with the German Football Association (DFB).

The new deal will start in July and run for three years, from 2015-16 to 2017-18.

Under the agreement, the Dekra logo will continue to appear on referees’ shirt sleeves during matches in the Bundesliga top-tier, the second-tier 2.Bundesliga and the DFB Cup knockout tournament.

Dekra will also benefit from branding on referees’ shirt sleeves in the Women’s Bundesliga and German Cup club women’s competitions.

In addition, Dekra will continue to support various initiatives it has run in collaboration with the DFB since the partnership began in 2003, including the recruitment of young referees.
