From handball to marathons

Aside from many football partnerships both large and small, REWE is also involved with other sports clubs such as the handball clubs SC DhfK Handball Leipzig and the Rhein-Neckar-Löwen, and the basketball clubs FC Bayern Basketball and Phoenix Hagen. Another key partnership is REWE Final 4, the national handball league cup final – a unique sporting event that brings together handball enthusiasts in Cologne every year.

E-Sports

REWE is a partner of SK Gaming, one of the best known e-sports brands.  As an official nutrition partner, REWE contributes its expertise in this area by providing fresh food and nutrition plans, for example.

In March 2020, REWE became shirt sponsor of the ‟FIFAˮ e-sport team of 1. FC Cologne in the virtual Bundesliga.

PENNY Czech Republic is a partner of the official e-sports team of the Czech national soccer team.

Nutrition – ‘Torhunger’ Mission

Talent alone is not enough. Nutrition is also an important factor for success. REWE has therefore founded the Torhunger initiative, which provides professional nutrition tips and events to help German football reach its full potential.

With the ‘Torhunger’ initiative, we bring together what belongs together: nutrition and football. Because in addition to hard training, real kickers also need the right nutrients to perform perfectly. REWE supports kickers and clubs with football camps and football cups, but also with the Torhunger food truck and many tips and tricks that help kickers to always be at full power on the pitch.

Ice hockey

PENNY is a supporter and proud partner of German ice hockey. Since season 2020/21, PENNY acts as the first title sponsor of the German ice hockey league. In the newly named PENNY DEL, the highest national league, the partnership is visible in the arenas in many ways. In addition to the kick plate, PENNY is also present with perimeter, under ice and goal branding, among others. Exciting off-ice events, such as the PENNY DEL barbecue championship or the “master market” of the Eisbären Berlin complement the partnership.

PENNY is also a premium partner of the German Ice Hockey Federation (DEB) and supports the German junior team and the Para national team. PENNY is also a partner of the eDEL (eSports). With a view to the home World Championships in 2027, PENNY has also been an official sponsor of the Ice Hockey World Championships since 2024.

With this involvement, PENNY strengthens its strategic and holistic partnership with regard to the world’s fastest team sport. All news and information about the involvement can be found at www.penny.de/eishockey.
