The integrity of sports and the captivating performance of athletes has an important function as a role model for the whole of society.
For this reason _wige has been an official partner of the Deutsche Sporthilfe since the beginning of 2015. The cooperation, initially agreed for four years, includes free strategic consulting for communication methods, and technological and event services. _wige has offered a wide range of media services for 35 years in numerous sports, having worked with the foundation to find an ideal activity to foster the values of “Performance. Fair play. Together.” as championed by Deutsche Sporthilfe.
Dr Michael Ilgner, chairman of Deutsche Sporthilfe:
“_wige and Deutsche Sporthilfe have been exchanging ideas for a long time and realised projects in joint efforts. To welcome _wige as an official partner and strategic consultant is a logical step. Sporthilfe is delighted to have another highly professional partner.”
The starting point for the cooperation was the Ball of Sports, which took place in a purpose-built mobile arena on the bowling green of the Wiesbaden Kurhaus on 7 February 2015. _wige provided extensive broadcasting technology for the annual event. Europe’s biggest charity gala in sports, under the motto “Arena for summiteers” in 2015, is a meeting place for Germany’s top sportsmen and important decision makers in the German economy with up to 1,600 guests.
