Schalke renews with banking partner

German co-operative bank VR-Bank Westmünsterland has extended its partnership with Schalke 04, which plays in the country’s Bundesliga top division of club football.

The initial agreement will run from July 2018 until at least 2020.

VR-Bank Westmünsterland will benefit from a range of marketing rights, such as a branding presence on LED advertising boards inside the team’s Veltins-Arena home stadium.

In addition, VR-Bank Westmünsterland will work with the club to run a series of fan-focused campaigns on Schalke’s official social media channels.

Schalke currently sits third in the 2017-18 Bundesliga, seven points behind table-topping Bayern Munich.
