German 2nd Division Women’s Bundesliga side FSV Gütersloh 2009 welcomes the Heil- und Mineralquellen Germete GmbH with its mineral water brand “Germeta” as the club’s new “Platinum Partner”. Heil- und Mineralquellen Germete GmbH thus becomes an important sponsor of the club and, with the sponsorship, they set a strong example for girls’ and women’s football in the East Westphalia-Lippe region. “Germeta” will also be the exclusive drinks partner of FSV Gütersloh from the forthcoming 2022/23 season.
“Germeta is a perfect partner for FSV Gütersloh in many ways. We are both shaped by tradition and consistency, as well as by an attitude to socio-political issues that has grown over decades. Germeta also showed us a convincing concept when it came to sustainability. With the special variety in the product range, Germeta ensures an attractive and expanded offer for our fans and stadium visitors. This partnership is also a milestone for our team for the future. We would like to thank you for your commitment in our region,” says Tobias Neumann, Deputy Managing Director & Head of Marketing/Sponsoring at FSV Gütersloh.
“During the negotiations with the club, it quickly became clear to us that a cooperation makes more than sense. In addition to the partnership with FSV, the region is of course also of great sales importance for us. The club with its appeal in the region is thus becoming an important anchor point for us. We are already looking forward to working together and, with FSV Gütersloh, we welcome a high-profile women’s team to our portfolio of sponsoring activities for the very first time,” says Olaf Eickelmeier, Head of Marketing at Heil- und Mineralquellen Germete GmbH, while looking forward to the partnership.
“In our discussions with Heil- und Mineralquellen Germete GmbH, we got to know the company, the people involved and the philosophy as refreshing and authentic. We are convinced that both sides can create and use new synergies together that can have a lasting effect on girls’ and women’s football. The ongoing and necessary professionalization of women’s football can only be guaranteed with strong partners. Heil- und Mineralquellen Germete GmbH is such a partner,” says Chris Punnakkattu Daniel, Strategic Advisor to FSV Gütersloh.
