Committed to supporting sport in the region
Sponsoring for upcoming talent and professional sport
Successful sport enhances the region’s identity. We support sportsmen and sportswomen in the Rhine/Neckar metropolitan region, as well as clubs and associations in the region that have made a name for themselves by working hard to promote upcoming talent and achieve great success. Our sponsoring strategy is to promote upcoming sporting talent and strengthen the regional roots of clubs and professional sportsmen and sportswomen.
Since the 2007/2008 season, we have acted as principal sponsor helping the Mannheim Eagles (Adler Mannheim) to realise their great achievements. Our logo decorates the jerseys of the players in this, the region’s most successful team. Not only that, we are also committed to helping the club’s fans.
Together with other companies, we have supported and lent our name to the Rhine-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim. This arena is home to 1899 Hoffenheim, a federal league football club, and is at the same time a beacon in the Rhine/Neckar metropolitan region. With this stadium, which has become a symbol for the entire region, the people living in our region have a new focal point for their local identity.

Verena Sailer’s greatest success to date as an individual athlete was the gold medal she won at the European Championships in Barcelona in 2010.
MVV Riding Stadium
We have been principal sponsor to the Maimarkt Riding Tournament for more than 10 years now. We also supported the European Championships in 1997, the German Championships in 2002, the World Vaulting Championships in 2000, the European Show-Jumping Championships in 2007 and the CSIO Nationenpreis 2015. The acquisition of the name rights to Mannheim Riding Stadium in spring 2007 provided a further sign of our long-term partnership with Mannheim Riding Club.
Football is the traditional popular sport. We have supported football clubs in Mannheim and elsewhere for many years now in their work with young people. One particular sign of our commitment is the annual MVV Energie Cup at SC Rot-Weiss Rheinau e.V.. “The teams competing there are always really good and everyone gets a prize” – that’s how one player in the C Youth Team at VFL Mannheim Neckarau Football Club described the championship. More than 800 children and young people from football teams across the whole of the Rhine/Neckar region compete each year to win one of the MVV Energie cups.
Sportkreis Mannheim e.V. is a regional sports association representing clubs with around 156,600 members within the Badisches Sportbund Nord 445 sports league. This association represents the sports clubs on a superordinate level, while the specific sports activities are performed exclusively by the respective sports associations and their subordinate regional structures.
We see the most important task as that of improving the framework in which our sports clubs operate. The promotion we provide to this sports association is a sign of the important role we believe sport has to play within society. This way, we underline the significance of sport. With our activities, we help ensure that sport receives promotion consistent with its valuable role within society.
"We are committed to the people who live in Mannheim and the Rhine/Neckar metropolitan region."
