Borussia Dortmund's digitalization partner

and proud main sponsor of the Dortmund Boys

What do football and IT have in common?

Both work best in a team!

As IT playmakers, we operate on a playing field that determines future success. adesso is BVB's official digitalization partner and its number 1 contact on the path to digital transformation. In addition, adesso has been the main youth sponsor since 2019 and also supports the promotion of young talent beyond the IT pitch.

We are proud of our partnership with Borussia Dortmund and look forward to successfully leading the club into a digital future. The focus is on comprehensive software development and IT consulting as well as IT projects in the specialist areas of sales, marketing and sport. In addition to the relaunch of the BVB website, adesso is supporting Borussia Dortmund, for example, with the introduction of a new ERP system and the development of a holistic data management system based on Salesforce.

BVB as a digital pioneer

A comprehensive data warehouse for data and analytics is also being created in the sports sector. This enables the company's own data from sports science, medicine or match analyses to be linked with external sources. The data can then be interpreted and visualised using appealing dashboards. Data-based scouting and player monitoring will ensure that youth and professional work continues at the highest level in the future.

BVB Managing Director Carsten Cramer is pleased about the continuation of the partnership:
Over the past three years, we have successfully realised important projects together with adesso. We want to build on this and jointly establish Borussia Dortmund as a digital pioneer in the Bundesliga and beyond. As an innovative digitalization expert, adesso is just the ideal partner for this.

Dortmund Boys

Ricken, Reus, Schmelzer, Moukoko – Dortmund Boys as they are in the book!

The dream of black and yellow has long been a reality for these players. But numerous young talents from BVB's U9 to U19 teams are hot on their heels - and we are proud to be their main youth sponsor.

What do all the Dortmund Boys have in common?

Bite, perseverance and a love of football. Where can you find them? At the BVB youth training center in Dortmund. A place where, of course, football is played extremely well and a lot. But it's not just the training of the youth players that is important here, but also their personal and academic development. Because Dortmund Boys are not just great footballers, but good guys with brains and heart!

By the way: The home games of the U17 and U19 Borussia youth teams can be streamed free of charge on Staige.

Technique, speed and creativity

Without these qualities, we would not be able to implement any of our projects so successfully. We are go-getters, take responsibility and approach large and small IT projects with a lot of passion.

Our strengths:

Comprehensive technical expertise and in-depth industry knowledge.

Our goal:

Optimise our customers' core business processes and bring them to the top through the targeted use of modern IT.

The best football club in the world comes from Dortmund - and so does the best IT service provider!

BVB 09 is founded by 40 members in the heart of the Ruhr region. To this day, Borussia Dortmund stands for intensity, authenticity and ambition more than any other club.

Just a stone's throw away from the most beautiful stadium in the world, the first adessi found a new software company in Dortmund's technology park: adesso. Since then, it is not only the city of Dortmund as our home that connects us with BVB. Because at adesso, too, we tackle everything simply, directly, together and at full throttle!

Okay, the adesso blue might not suggest it at first glance, but as the saying goes: Separated in colour, united in heart - this is especially true for BVB & adesso.

From Dortmund all over the world

More than 175,000 members and over 1,000 fan clubs around the world: Borussia fans can be found in almost every country around the globe. Admittedly, we can't quite keep up (yet). But our passionate adessi make us at least as proud!

Incidentally, adesso can be found not only in 15 countries, but also on the stock exchange floor - here too in good company with BVB, the first German football club to venture onto the stock exchange in 2000. Since 2007, adesso has also been available as an investment!

More than 9900 employees

Whether mini Borussia or adessini –

the smallest are the biggest for us!

What the lively BVB bee EMMA is to Mini-Borussians, the colourful and agile robot Cody is to adessini. On our adessini portal, more than 2,000 adesso kids are already getting a taste of IT together with Cody the robot and can look forward to great competitions and hands-on activities. family@adesso is exactly what we mean: parent-child offices, adesso events for the whole family or working time models that make it easier for adessi to combine work and kids - that's important to us!

Do you have any questions?

There is no website or brochure which can replace a personal meeting to talk about your goals and topics. We are looking forward to an appointment on site.
