FC Bayern and companies of the Schwarz Group have agreed on a cooperation. In the coming years, PreZero, the IT products XM Cyber and STACKIT, and Lidl's own-brand mineral water Saskia will become partners of the German record champions.

Andreas Jung, FC Bayern board member for marketing: “We are delighted that the companies of the Schwarz Group - PreZero, STACKIT and XM Cyber - will become partners of FC Bayern. Furthermore, we are happy about our new beverage cooperation with Saskia. The cooperation is long term, and in the areas of circular economy and digitalisation it will become the beginning of a mutual path.”

Thomas Kyriakis, CEO of PreZero: “We want to use our strengths together and set an example for a more responsible use of resources - both in sport and in society. We are proud to be working intensively with Bayern Munich in the future. Together with the club as well as its fans and partners, we want to raise awareness for the circular economy.”

PreZero, one of the leading environmental service providers in Europe, has already been responsible for waste disposal at the Allianz Arena for three years and will in future take over the entire waste management at FC Bayern locations. The aim is to gradually close material cycles and thus improve recycling rates. PreZero has already shown innovative ways of giving supposed waste a second life with the "Herzrasen" project, in which the grass cuttings from the Allianz Arena are processed into paper bags for the official fan shop.

Lidl's own-brand mineral water Saskia, which is manufactured by Schwarz Produktion, will be delivered to the Allianz Arena and all club locations in the future. Through the cloud offering STACKIT and the cybersecurity service provider XM Cyber, the companies of the Schwarz Group will support FC Bayern in advancing digitalisation. “With their individual and scalable solutions, STACKIT and XM Cyber offer Bayern Munich the optimal conditions for digital transformation,” explained Rolf Schumann, CEO of Schwarz Digital. “We are delighted to be able to support the German record champions in this development.”
