We usually maintain long-term, trusting cooperation and make sure to do this with partners at the highest level. We want to continue to stick to this path in the future.
“With TSG, Interwetten has been maintaining an open and trusting partnership for three years, into which we have a lot of passion. The digital innovation and the enormous professionalism of VfL impressed us immediately after we started our collaboration in July 2019. With both clubs, the TSG and the VfL, we want to celebrate success together, learn from each other and develop together.
“We were immediately impressed by the digital innovative power and the incredible professionalism at VfL Wolfsburg. As one of the longest established betting providers on the market, our clear goal is to be the first mover and a driver of innovation in the industry. VfL fits perfectly into this approach. We want to celebrate success together, learn from each other and develop together.”
