Handball Bundesliga banks extension with title sponsor

German banking group Deutsche Kreditbank (DKB) has signed a two-year extension to its title sponsorship deal with the Handball Bundesliga club competition.

The existing contract was set to run through to 2017, but has now been extended to 2019.

Toyota had previously served as title sponsor of the Bundesliga with DKB replacing the Japanese automotive company in 2012. German news agency SID said its contract is worth just over €1m ($1.1m) per season.
