Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, VfL Wolfsburg has been able to rely on the continued support of strong partners, with Linglong Tire extending its existing global agreement for another two years. The visible symbol of this partnership has been on the left sleeve of the Wolves’ jerseys in every Bundesliga and DFB Cup game for the last year, and this will remain so until 2022.
Extended contract agreement
The Chinese company has been a partner of the club for a number of years, and has extended the current contract agreement, which includes the use of LED boards, Cam Carpets, matchday hospitality and digital services. Linglong are the exclusive tyre partner of the club and are featured as a global sponsor on the highest partner level at the Wolves’ home games. “This partnership extension confirms the relationship of trust that we have built up over recent years and sends out an important message during this time of global crisis,” said VfL Managing Director Michael Meeske. “Linglong Tire’s presence at all of the Wolves’ domestic matches underlines the strong ties between the company and the club.” Feng Wang, CEO of Linglong Tire, took a similarly positive view of the future, saying: “2020 is an unusual year, however, the relationship between VfL Wolfsburg and Linglong will become stronger and stronger. It is such a great pleasure for Linglong to remain the Official Jersey Sleeve Partner of VfL Wolfsburg in the new season. We are looking forward to another successful season for the club!“
