Absen already benefits from an excellent reputation in the sports market, with a second to none price to quality ratio, as Peterfaj outlined:

I’ve been involved with a number of manufacturers over the years, but none of them gave me an impression of always wanting to do better with the future in mind, like Absen does. The high profile venues where Absen products can be found speak for themselves.

To further develop its presence in this market, Absen can count on existing installations in leading European football stadiums, including Germany, Italy, Portugal and France. In the first and second division of Bundesliga alone, Absen’s flagship A97 LED perimeter displays can be found in an impressive 13 stadiums.
