International sporting goods retailer Intersport signed contract as sponsor of the Austrian Football Association
For Intersport Austria CEO Mathias Boenke (photo right), it's important to motivate people for being active. Especially the youth can benefit from team sports like football; the experiences can be applied to many situations during the whole life. Carried by this idea, the retailer is since many years supporter of the 'Intersport Football Camps' for children and youth in collaboration with former professional player, trainer and coach Didi Constantini.
Now, Intersport Austria signed the 2-year sponsorship contract with the Austrian Football Association (Österreichischer Fussball Bund or ÖFB). With this contract, Intersport is one of the partners of the Austrian National Team, sponsor of the ÖFB Samsung Cup (next live TV broadcast on 10 February) and will offer the UEFA EURO 2016 fan products as 'Official ÖFB Sports Shop' in more than 800 stores in Europe. It's announced that fans can find the products also at the Intersport booth at the stadium during UEFA Euro 2016 (10 June - 10 July) in France.
