VfL Wolfsburg has extended its partnership with Linglong Tire. As of this season, the Green-Whites will bear the logo of the Chinese tyre manufacturer on their left shirt sleeves during Bundesliga and DFB Cup fixtures.
“We’re proud to be able to underpin our trusting partnership with Linglong Tire through the sleeve sponsorship,” said VfL managing director Michael Meeske. “This underlines the close association with VfL Wolfsburg as the sleeve is ultimately one of the most attractive and powerful advertising spaces on offer from a Bundesliga club.”
This comes just a few weeks after VfL extended the cooperation by a further three years during its tour of China. Linglong Tire, which has been the club’s exclusive tyre partner since the start of 2015, acts as a top-level global partner at the Wolves’ home games. Having started as an international partner, the company intensified its commitment in July 2018 by becoming a global ClubofChampions partner.
“From top partner to shirt sleeve sponsor, over the past four and a half years the partnership and cooperation between Linglong and VfL Wolfsburg have continued to deepen,” said Feng Wang, Linglong Tire CEO. “We're so glad to maintain this relationship and promote the globalization of the Linglong brand, and we hope to witness a bright future together with VfL Wolfsburg.”
Fans can add the Linglong Tire badge to their new VfL shirt at no extra cost.
