The basketball future in bamberg seems secure for the time being. Contrary to a recent announcement, the brose group led by CEO michael stoschek will remain in business beyond the first quarter of 2010. This association, the academy for self-defense and violence prevention, will remain the main shareholder of the bundesliga club until july of this year, as the upper franconians announced on sunday. The brose group, which as an automotive supplier is affected by the corona crisis, had actually wanted to sell its shares in bamberger basketball gmbh. But there was no deal in the sales negotiations. Stoschek continues as majority shareholder after all.
Brose continues to be available "to attract supra-regional sponsors as well as bamberg entrepreneurs as additional shareholders," stoschek and bamberg’s managing director arne dirks announced in a joint statement. This means that further companies are to be won over to join brose as shareholders in the bundesliga club. The fact that brose will remain name and main sponsor had already been ensured beforehand.
In order to make a commitment more palatable to regional companies, wilfried kamper is appointed to the board of the bamberger wirtschaftsclub e.V. Admitted to the supervisory board. With the support of bamberg’s mayor andreas stark, negotiations with potential investors are to be continued.
The bamberg team is currently preparing for the final tournament of the bundesliga in munich. Ten teams are to determine the new champion there in three weeks from the beginning of june.
