Sports sponsoring: We support SC Paderborn 07 football club

Sport motivates, arouses strong emotions and inspires enthusiasm. Sport is also very important to us at BENTELER. We have been promoting sporting activity among our employees in Germany for 25 years with our very own Sports-Manager who organizes events such as football tournaments and running meets. We understand how crucial sport is to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and are therefore very happy to champion this.

As one of the biggest employers in the Ostwestfalen-Lippe region - and since we have our roots in Paderborn (Germany) - we sponsor the local football club SC Paderborn 07. The team faces opposing teams in the BENTELER-Arena on a regular basis, celebrates its successes together with us and learns from its defeats.

Our employees and their families also benefit from our role as sponsor, and can regularly win tickets for home matches in our competitions. What’s more, up to three times a year we offer employees' children the chance to be a match mascot and walk out on to the pitch with their footballing idols. Our sponsorship of SC Paderborn 07 is a clear acknowledgement of Paderborn and our roots here.
