There are many arguments why sports sponsorship should be part of corporate communications. These arguments are important and good. For us there are a lot of other reasons why we as German Copters get involved in sports sponsorship. The most important reason is: We are all crazy about sports. But we also see the great potential of the sports clubs we support. With our support we might be able to help the Dresdner Eislöwen and HC Elbflorenz Dresden move up to the 1st Bundesliga. and the DSC volleyball women's team can play in the Champions League again.

Dresdner Sportclub

The Dresden Sports Club has existed since 1898 and has a long tradition. The currently most successful team is the women's volleyball team. Several championship titles and trophies are on the volleyball players' long list of successes. But the team has also played successfully internationally. Whether in the Champions League or the European Cup, the team plays at a high international level.

Dresdner Eislöwen

It is possible that only a few people know that the Dresden ice hockey tradition dates back to 1909. Ice hockey has always been popular in Dresden. In the 1950s, 8,000 spectators came to a match in Dresden. After a temporary low, there is now another chance to move up to the first division. The management has a clear plan and we want to help implement it.
The handball club has been playing in the 2nd Bundesliga since 2017. The sports club is well managed and currently has over 400 members. The club has a high reputation in the city of Dresden and the region. We believe that the club will be able to make it to the first handball league in the next 3 to 4 years. The club thinks long-term and builds a young team step by step. That is a good strategy.
