Leading European IT security vendor joins BVB defense

JENA – ESET, a cybersecurity vendor with its headquarters in Bratislava, Slovakia is the new Champion Partner of the Borussia Dortmund (BVB) football club – the highest possible level of partnership. Sponsoring and cooperation plans are long-term and will last for the next three seasons of the Bundesliga, the top tier league of German football. ESET will be supporting the fans of the eight-time German Champion with activities and initiatives at all 17 home matches in the Bundesliga.

“Borussia Dortmund is one of the most popular and well-liked teams in European club football,” happily noted Richard Marko, CEO of ESET. “Just like BVB, ESET is also passionate and dedicated towards its fans. That’s why sponsoring Borussia Dortmund is an ideal place to meet so many enthusiastic supporters who want to enjoy great football whether that’s on the field or while staying cyber safe and streaming online.”

Hans-Joachim Watzke, CEO of Borussia Dortmund, announced: “ESET and Borussia Dortmund are united by their international appeal. Here, two brands popular in their respective backgrounds meet." Carsten Cramer, Managing Director of Borussia Dortmund, also went on to highlight: "ESET stands for exactly those values that BVB embodies: reliability, passion, courage and integrity. From the very beginning our meetings were characterized by focus and mutual trust. We are very happy to welcome ESET to our team of Champion Partners.”

True love meets true security

The Internet has significantly changed the way people experience their lives, and football is no exception. ESET joining forces with BVB brings the worlds of football and internet safety closer. This is especially important to the new spectrum of possibilities and activities like streaming matches on the go, connecting with fellow fans abroad, or hunting for rare collectables which have become a massive part of fandom and the game itself.

Activities for fans throughout the season

Fans can expect great activities during BVB matches surrounding the topic of “cybersecurity and soccer” both online and offline. So, let’s cheer on the black and yellows this August 17 as they battle for a home victory against Augsburg.
