For 20 years. I.K. Hofmann has supported sports and their fans. In Germany we have sponsored the German professional soccer club SpVgg Gruether Furth which competes in the Bundesliga, since 2002, including serving as the title sponsor since 2017. In 2012 we added sponsorships for the professional Handball team, HC Erlangen, and the professional Ice Hockey team, the Nürnberg Ice Tigers, and these sponsorships remain active today. We have also added the Nuremburg Falcons, a professional basketball team, and Hallescher FC another professional soccer team. We have supported these teams an their fans through our international “No fan without work” initiative, and we are supporting those fans by providing them with jobs that help provide for their families and by supporting local athletics to bring communities together to build relationships and celebrate accomplishments.
