By Jay Stuart | October 31, 2018
Austrian Bundesliga club FC Wacker Innsbruck has named Infront Austria as the exclusive marketing and sales partner for all commercial rights of all club teams.
The long-term agreement includes marketing aspects for both the squad and the 17,000-seat Tivoli-Neu stadium.
FC Wacker Innsbruck, recently promoted to the country’s top-tier league, was formed in 2002, following the bankruptcy of FC Tirol Innsbruck.
Club president Gerhard Stocker said: “Healthy growth is part of the club’s entrepreneurial strategy. We want to provide Tyrol with unforgettable football experiences and we need the financial means to do so. With Infront Austria and their long-term experience, we are confident we can fulfil our ambitions.”
“I am pleased that we can now add FC Wacker Innsbruck to our numerous traditional clubs in Germany and Italy, working with a team with a great history,” said Stefan Krauß, Managing Director of Infront Austria.
“It is important to remember that whilst Austria is traditionally regarded as a winter sports haven, there is a passionate football fan base here and that is why we want it as part of our portfolio. Our aim is to contribute to FC Wacker Innsbruck’s success as they establish themselves as a fixture in the Bundesliga.”
