Munich. BMW Munich and FC Bayern München Basketball
GmbH have agreed a long-term collaboration: from July 2023, BMW’s
Munich branch will be the mobility partner of the five-time German
basketball champions, providing fully electric vehicles for the
players and trainer team. The two partners will also be teaming up off
the court, with joint social responsibility and non-profit projects.
“FC Bayern has established absolute top-flight basketball in Munich
and has a growing fan base. We are thrilled to be moving into the next
chapter of their success story with them, as their mobility partner,
and to be spreading the positive energy beyond the world of sports,”
said Bernd Döpke, Head of BMW’s Munich branch. “FC Bayern München
Basketball and BMW are both global successes that remain firmly rooted
in their home city. They carry their origins with them in their names
and represent Munich far beyond the city itself.”
Details of the partnership are due to be announced at a press
conference in early July, at the BMW branch office in Munich.
