DFL Denies MSV Duisburg 2nd Bundesliga License; Team Could Lose Shirt Sponsor
Published June 24, 2013
EMPTY CHEST: In Duisburg, Ingo Blazejewski reported MSV Duisburg's shirt sponsorship deal with online utility brand Rheinpower "is in jeopardy after the DFL denied Duisburg its 2nd Bundesliga license." Rheinpower spokesperson Torsten Hiermann said, "The sponsorship deal calls on both parties to renegotiate if the club gets relegated from the 2nd Bundesliga." Rheinpower "has been the club's title sponsor for four years and the current deal runs for another year." Duisburg gets a reported €1.4M ($1.8M) per year from Rheinpower (DER WESTEN, 6/21).
