KUALA LUMPUR: MAN Truck and Bus (M) Sdn Bhd (MTBM) was the exclusive bus sponsor for eight-time German Bundesliga champions
Borussia Dortmund (BVB) when they were in Johor Bahru for a match against 2014 Malaysian Super League champions Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT).
The BVB team arrived in Singapore on July 8, 2015 for training before travelling to the Tan Sri Dato Haji Hassan Yunos Stadium in Larkin for the match on July 9, 2015.
Three MAN sponsored buses were used to transport the football team and its entourage from Singapore to Johor Bahru and back, with the team bus proudly sporting the BVB Asia Tour 2015 decal.
Hartmut Mueller, managing director of MTBM said, “Both the BVB and MAN brands have a rich tradition that stands for a long history of success, and we wanted to ensure that the former UEFA Champion League finalists could enjoy great comfort on board the team bus during their Asian tour, as they are used to in Europe”.
MAN has sponsored BVB in Germany for many years, supplying the BVB team bus and a mobile fan shop.
The BVB team bus comes exclusively equipped and fulfills all demands on modern travel.
As the official bus sponsor for the team’s first Asian tour, MAN was responsible for the land transportation of the team during the entire duration of the tour.
“Since the MAN Group formed the partnership with Borussia Dortmund some years ago, the team has only had the best of experiences with MAN’s coach,” said Mueller.
