Team German Men's Eight

Main sponsor Wilo backs the German Men’s Eight team on water and land

Wilo has been the main sponsor of the German Men’s Eight since 2010 and it accompanied the team successfully 2012, where the legendary eight won gold in the UK. The Wilo-Foundation also jumped on board in 2013 as a promoter of the sport. At the start of the 2015 season, Wilo expanded its sponsoring commitments to include the whole team. Now, the other two boats in the rowing team, the pair and four, are also part of the Wilo fleet. The partnership between Wilo and the German Men’s Eight team goes far beyond the sport itself. As part of its extensive involvement, Wilo also supports the athletes at the Dortmund performance centre in their professional education.
