DFB extends courier partnership with Deutsche Post

The German Football Association (DFB) has extended its partnership with courier company Deutsche Post through to the end of 2020.

Under the deal, Deutsche Post will continue as the DFB’s Exclusive Logistics Partner, covering both this summer’s Fifa Women’s World Cup and Euro 2020.

After initially supporting Germany’s national women’s teams only, Deutsche Post expanded the partnership in 2012 to include logistics support for the men’s and junior national teams, both in Germany and overseas.

Arjan Sissing, head of brand marketing at Deutsche Post DHL Group, said: “We ensure transport of a wide range of items – from jerseys, balls and shoes, to training, IT and marketing equipment – and of course the players’ luggage.

“The DFB benefits from our extensive experience in sport and event logistics, as exemplified by our work for Formula 1, Formula E and international rugby over the years.”

Deutsche Post serves as a second-tier partner of the DFB, alongside Bwin, Coca-Cola, Commerzbank, Lufthansa, Deutsche Telekom, Engelbert Strauss, Rewe, Samsung, Flyeralarm and SAP.

The DFB’s partnership with Deutsche Post dates back to 2009.
