WIRSOL to retain stadium naming-rights

German soccer side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and solar energy company, WIRSOL, have agreed to extend their existing naming-rights agreement, which has been in place since 2011, for a further two years.


Under the new deal, the Bundesliga club’s home stadium in Sinsheim will continue to carry the name WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar Arena on the same basis as the current collaboration.


“In WIRSOL, we have been able to gain a trusted partner from the metropolitan area for another two years. This continuity is more than pleasing. WIRSOL stands for courage and innovation, and fits very well with our Club,” said Chairman of the board at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, Peter Rettig.


Markus Wirth, Chief Executive at WIRSOL, added: “We’re delighted that we can continue our collaboration with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. Our commitment to the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena is about continuity and also the new strengths of our brand. We’re confident that TSG’s young team will continue to develop with their spirited style of football. As a result, WIRSOL will have an excellent platform for the growth of its brand for the next years in the form of the stadium.”
