"With BELECTRIC, Wölfe have a strong partner at their side. The corporate philosophies of BELECTRIC and Wölfe fit together perfectly and complement each other well. With our dual concept of sport and career, we see great synergies and can make an important contribution in terms of recruiting and perception through our image. BELECTRIC and Wölfe stand for continuity and regionality, which connects as well as opens up opportunities for both partners. We are proud to win a partner like BLECTRIC for the Wölfe project", comments Roland Sauer, Managing Director of Wölfe Würzburg.

Handball is a sport that inspires regardless of gender, origin or age. With employees from more than 20 nations, BELECTRIC also stands for an open-minded, cosmopolitan attitude. Starting with the coming season, the logo of the solar energy company will be on display at all Wölfe home games in the tectake ARENA in Würzburg. In addition, various joint activities are planned, for example a Meet & Greet where everyone interested can get to know not only BELECTRIC but also the professional handball players from Wölfe Würzburg up close.
