It makes the use of virtual advertising even easier and more attractive for rightsholders and sponsors. Together with our partners Borussia Dortmund and Supponor, we are very pleased to be the first to offer computer-based virtual advertising in the Bundesliga.”
Massimo Magrì, managing director Europe at Supponor, said: “We are extremely proud to have launched Supponor Air for the German market together with our long-standing partner SportFive and top club Borussia Dortmund. Thanks to the league-wide approval by the DFL, Supponor Air is now available to all Bundesliga clubs in all conditions, including for different weather conditions and kick-off times. Because of its operational efficiencies and subsequent cost savings, Supponor Air is accessible to any club on the market.”
