European soccer champions FC Bayern Munich have renewed their partnership with the Man Group.
The commercial vehicle manufacturer is to continue as a sponsor of the club and the provider of the official first team coach until the end of the 2015/16 German soccer season. Its branding will appear on pitchside advertising hoardings at the Allianz Arena.
Man, which began its partnership with Bayern in 2010, will also go on providing transport for the club’s basketball team and will have similar promotion in their home Audi Dome.
According to Sponsors.de, this type of partnership is worth around €1 million (US$1.38 million) per year.
Bayern’s soccer team moved to within a win of retaining their Bundesliga title with a 2-0 win away at Mainz 05 on Saturday, stretching their unbeaten run in the league to 51 games. They are currently 23 points clear of Borussia Dortmund in the table with eight games left.
