“Welcome to neustädter, 46ers!” says Fabiola Peiniger, center manager at Girlan Immobilien and responsible for the property. “The 46ers are a great team, known for loyal fans and firmly rooted in Giessen. We are therefore very pleased to be their partner and to start the new year with this sporting cooperation. Nice joint actions will be, for example, an autograph session with the players of the 46ers in February and other exciting actions.”
Sebastian Schmidt, Managing Director and Sports Director of the JobStairs GIESSEN 46ers, comments on the cooperation: “The cooperation with neustädter has advantages for both sides. The JobStairs GIESSEN 46ers fan and ticket store is excellent for being even closer to our fans. Super is also the greater visibility of our team in the Giessen city center. At this new location, we are planning a lot of great actions for youth and fan work; from a signature campaign to tournaments together with the JobStairs GIESSEN 46ers players.”
“Since 2018, we have extensively modernized and repositioned the center and successfully developed it further despite the difficult Corona situation. The tenant mix has been optimized and, for example, we have been able to attract the gastronomic highlight ‘Schlaraffenland’ at the new West Entrance to the center. Another highlight for us is, of course, that we can now welcome the 46ers basketball team to the neustädter. With attractions such as this friendly first league club 46ers, we are sending an important signal and will not only attract the fans of Giessen with the fan and ticket store, but also make the center even more attractive for our customers overall,” says Guido Beddig, Head of Asset Management Commercial at CORESTATE on the cooperation agreement.
