When our club faced an existential threat at the beginning of the millennium, SIGNAL IDUNA was one of the first companies to unreservedly support us, thus helping to ensure BVB’s survival. We will never forget that.”

Carsten Cramer, Managing Director, Borussia Dortmund, stated:
“The worldwide Covid pandemic has meant that many industries – including football – have faced struggles. The fact that SIGNAL IDUNA has once again shown itself to be so committed to our partnership in the midst of this difficult situation shows how great the appreciation is on both sides.”

Ulrich Leitermann, CEO, Signal Iduna Group, added:
“We’ve grown up together in Dortmund, we’ve celebrated successes together and we’ve also made it through some tough times. Our partnership with BVB underscores our ambition, which we also pursue in our customer relationships; we want to be a long-lasting and reliable partner. We are there for each other. That’s why we are proud to be able to continue our shared journey for at least another nine years. We look forward to exciting games in SIGNAL IDUNA PARK and wish the team and all the fans successful days to come to the world’s most beautiful stadium!”
