Volkswagen has announced that it will be the Official Mobility Partner of UEFA National Team Football, with effect from next year.

11 Aug 2017 | International News : Germany

Starting next year, Volkswagen will become a new partner of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) and is thus continuing its long-standing football tradition. Under a four-year contract as Official Mobility Partner of UEFA National Team Football, the company will also be supporting the UEFA 2020 European Football Championship, which is taking place in 13 countries for the first time to mark the 60th anniversary of the competition.

This engagement will mainly serve as a communication platform for the market launch of the I.D., which will be the face of Volkswagen's new e-mobility family from 2020 onwards. Volkswagen is at home on roads from the Atlantic to the Urals, between Spitzbergen and Sicily. Just under 1.7 million vehicles were delivered to customers in Europe last year. Passenger cars bearing the round VW emblem are available in all of UEFA's 55 member countries. The brand also operates 21 production plants with around 150,000 employees in seven countries on the continent.

Dr. Herbert Diess, CEO of the Volkswagen brand, commented, "No other sport is as powerful as football or unites so many people. Furthermore, the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship played across the entire continent is a fantastic project. Our wish is to contribute towards building bridges between all countries and for football fans with our mobility and creativity."
