7 mins read

Following are the companies and organisations that serve as sponsors and brand partners to the German Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg and enjoy a strong branding presence across their physical and digital assets.

 

SPONSORS

Primary Sponsor

Volkswagen

The history of the city of Wolfsburg is directly intertwined with that of Volkswagen. Founded in July 1938, Wolfsburg was a planned city intended to house Volkswagen workers who would go on to manufacture the Volkswagen Beetle.

Established as a sports club in September 1945, VfL Wolfsburg (VfL: Verein für Leibesübungen, loosely translated to “Association for Physical Education”) remain owned by the very company that birthed the city they are a part of in the first place. The football side of the club is run by VfL Wolfsburg-Fußball GmbH, a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, and the home ground of the club is called the Volkswagen Arena since 2002.

Volkswagen also serves as the front-of-matchday-shirt sponsor to all of the club’s teams.

 

Top Partners

Autostadt (Automobile City)

The Autostadt is a tourist attraction located right next to the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg. A multi-purpose facility, the Autostadt serves as a museum, a theme park, and a customer centre.

Autostadt’s proximity to Volkswagen (both literal and figurative) reflects in it being a Top Partner of VfL Wolfsburg. Having a close connection with the club, the Autostadt is involved in a variety of activities and initiatives with the club, ranging from exclusive offers for the club’s associates to organising community events.

Linglong Tire

The Zhaoyuan-headquartered tyre manufacturer first joined VfL Wolfsburg’s sponsorship portfolio on January 1, 2015, as an international partner; the deal was announced in December the year before. In 2018, Linglong became a global “Club of Champions” partner of the club.

In August 2019, Linglong and Wolfsburg announced an extension of their partnership that made the former a Top Partner and the official sleeve sponsor for the club’s matchday shirts during league and cup (DFB-Pokal) matches.

In September 2020, the two parties again renewed their partnership, extending the sleeve sponsorship deal until 2022.

Nike

The American sportswear giant signed a nine-year kit supply deal with the club in April 2016, replacing Italian brand Kappa and returning as the club’s kit sponsor for the first time since 2009. The deal kicked off with the start of the 2016-17 season.

The club had signed a five-year deal with Kappa in 2014, but it was cut short after just two years.

Grupo Sesé

The Zaragoza-headquartered Spanish logistics operator serves as a Top Partner to the club since 2016. As part of the deal, Wolfsburg holds an annual kids’ football camp in the city of Zaragoza, where Grupo Sesé’s employees’ kids get to play alongside Wolfsburg’s youth academy’s players.
