AUTO1 Group SE: Autohero becomes main partner of the German Handball Association

Berlin, January 04, 2022

Berlin, January 04, 2022 – Autohero, the leading online shop for used cars in Europe, launches a partnership with the German Handball Association (DHB) and becomes its main partner.

With immediate effect, the Autohero logo will appear on the jerseys of the DHB women's and men's senior national teams, and further comprehensive marketing activities are planned in the association's environment. The focus of the cooperation is to jointly address German handball fans, online and in print, during TV broadcasts and live on site at the appearances of the national handball teams.

Following successful partnerships with DTM, Europe's leading racing series, the Berlin soccer club Hertha BSC, and Paris Saint-Germain, Autohero is now making its first commitment to German handball.

Christian Bertermann, CEO and Co-Founder of AUTO1 Group, says: „The partnership with the DHB underlines our great ambitions with Autohero - also in top German sports. We are very excited to share the special moments in handball with millions of fans from now on, and at the same time to inspire them with our unique, fully digital car-buying offer. We believe that DHB, with its large tradition and strong community, is the best possible door opener to introduce the best way to buy and sell used cars online." Hamza Saber, Managing Director of Autohero Germany, added: "Many handball enthusiasts have not had a point of contact with online car buying until now. With our DHB partnership, we will make Autohero as a brand tangible and accessible - and thus position it even more strongly as the first choice for buying used cars in Germany."
