Deutsche Bahn steps up backing of German Olympic Committee

Railway company Deutsche Bahn has agreed new sponsorship deals with the German Olympic Committee (DOSB) and the German Disability Sports Federation (DBS).

The agreements will cover next year’s winter Olympics and Paralympics in Pyeongchang, Korea, and the 2020 summer Games in Tokyo, Japan.

Deutsche Bahn will serve as the official mobility partner of the two organisations, while its DB Schenker subsidiary has been named as an official logistics partner.

Deutsche Bahn has supported the DBS since 2002, with DB Schenker having served as a co-partner of the DOSB since the 2000 summer Games in Sydney, Australia.

The DOSB said the new agreements have consolidated and expanded the existing relationships.
