German Side Sign New Partnership In South Africa

German third-division outfit Arminia Bielefeld has announced that they have signed a new partnership in South Africa in Brits, North West Province.

The partnership, which will run for three years, will mainly pay attention to kids who come from poor backgrounds, especially in the townships.

Former Bafana Bafana winger Delron Buckley, who plied his trade for the German club between 2004-2005, will be the South African ambassador when the contract is finally signed and the project takes off the ground.

“With this cooperation, we have taken another important step on our joint path in South Africa. The collaboration with Weinert Industries is our first regional partnership with a company in South Africa and documents our clear commitment to intensifying and expanding our work locally,” Arminia Bielefeld`s CEO Christoph Wortmann said via a press release.

“In cooperation with the Schächter Sports agency, Arminia ambassador Delron Buckley and DSC academy coach Tom Schütz have made the final preparations for the signing of the contract in Brits, North West Province.

“In our search for a suitable partner, we quickly came across Weinert Industries. The company is purposefully based in the region and has long-term plans there. With the agreed cooperation, we will be able to reach our goals together on site,” added Nico Luft, Head of Sales at DSC.

“Our investment in Brits is a cornerstone of WEINERT’s global growth strategy. To ensure the lasting success of this investment, WEINERT is dedicated to supporting local communities and empowering their residents to build a brighter future.

“This commitment includes backing our own WEINERT Foundation, which provides scholarships for students, as well as partnering with Arminia Bielefeld SA NPC to help children and teenagers in South Africa pursue their dreams”, Marcus Bloom-Pflug, CEO of WEINERT in Africa further explained.
