Viessmann and sports: They belong together!

Winter sports, motor sports and ball sports: For us, sports sponsoring is as natural as the quality of our products. Learn more about our commitment and passion for sports.

For over 20 years, sports sponsoring has simply been a part of our business. We do it above all out of complete conviction and enthusiasm for top-class sport. Whether biathlon, ski jumping, luge, cross-country or Nordic combined: we support top athletes in numerous winter sports and accompany them on their way to success. We also promote youth work and talent in sport. Within this framework, we support the C squad of the German Ski Association (DSV), among others. 

We also support a large number of local sports clubs in their responsible commitment. 

Viessmann and Glamorgan Cricket

Welsh plumbing, heating and green energy company, Heatforce, has entered into a two-year sponsorship of Glamorgan Cricket Club in association with Viessmann. The spectator terrace at Glamorgan Cricket’s Sophia Gardens stadium, Cardiff, will be renamed ‘The Heatforce/Viessmann Terrace.’

Heatforce’s close relationship with Viessmann has led to the decision to explore a new audience, and to provide support for the Club.

“As a Glamorgan Cricket supporter myself, I’m delighted that we are joining forces with Viessmann, to support the Club and to raise our brand awareness in the local area. We have big ambitions – just like the cricketing side – and we are very pleased to be able to back a Welsh sporting side, especially in these challenging times”, said Paul Maddocks, CEO of Heatforce, which has been serving homeowners in Wales for 35 years.

Graham Russell, Viessmann’s Managing Director, said: “Viessmann is very happy to sponsor Glamorgan Cricket, together with our longstanding local installation partner, Heatforce. Having supported Welsh rugby in recent years, we’re looking forward to having a presence at Sophia Gardens and introducing our heating products to a new sporting family. Like many others, we can’t wait to get back to spectator sports and some decent cricket weather, and we don’t have to wait too long to be able to support Glamorgan from the new ‘Heatforce/Viessmann Terrace’.”

We are Winterfans!

We believe that top products and top-class sport simply belong together. That is another reason why we have been active in this area since 1993. From the World Cup to the Tour de Ski to the traditional Four Hills Tournament: We are represented at all important winter sports events and are partners of over 40 athletes.

By sponsoring sport, we acknowledge our social responsibility. 

With the initiative "We are #winter fans" the ecological footprint of winter sports is improved

We love winter sports. No question! We love it when the snow turns the landscape into a white splendour and sometimes makes our vision difficult. We love it when fans and responsible people with their stars are so fervently fevered that they forget the freezing cold. And we love it, like children's eyes start to shine when they watch their role models on skis or runners and applaud them as they race down the slopes.

Besides this love, this passion, there are two other reasons why we are committed to the preservation of winter sports: the continuing global warming and its consequences.

More and more the seasons get out of balance.

Snow-covered slopes and freezing cold in winter are no longer a matter of course. Instead, the snow line continues to retreat. At lower altitudes the sticky mud dominates instead of the white splendour. This has consequences for winter sports enthusiasts - and of course for the fans. As a long-standing partner of winter sports, we have launched the initiative We are #winter fans. Together with athletes and partners from society, politics, business and science, we develop solutions for more sustainable winter sports.

While we cannot stop climate change and its impacts, we can raise awareness among all stakeholders and provide environmentally friendly technologies that will also benefit the generations of tomorrow. Stars like Laura Dahlmeier, Richard Freitag and Johannes Rydzek also have this topic at heart.
