Infront Germany Managing Director Reinhardt Weinberger said: “Mainz 05 has established itself in the Bundesliga in recent years, developing into a strong brand that is popular beyond its traditional fans. The long-term partnership gives us the opportunity to continue to promote this sustainable development on the marketing side. We thank the club for its trust and cooperation over the past five years and look forward to the next 11.”
Mainz 05 Commercial Director Jan Lehmann said: "The early extension of the contract by another six years underlines the cooperation and trust between Mainz 05 and Infront. Over the past year we were able to take our collaboration to a new level and improve processes, growing closer as partners. After pushing ahead with our own strategic planning and analysing our various options we are pleased that we can expand this partnership."
