Deutscher Fußball-Bund partners with HYPE Sports Innovation to bring Sports Tech Solutions to German Football for 2021

In the Press Release | February 1, 2021

Now, as HYPE is about to launch its 2nd cycle of the Global Virtual Accelerator (GVA2.0) focused on enabling the top Sports Tech startups to secure pilots with our lead partners. GVA 2.0 is constructed of 7 Sports Tech Verticals which will be populated based on a pre-pilot selection process in which for example, DFB will be presenting its actual challenges to a handpicked shortlist of startups narrowed down from around 1,200+ applications. The Sports Tech startups that will be invited to come to the table, displaying the relevant technology and ability to scale, stands to conduct a product/service pilot with them.

“We are very much looking forward to sealing this partnership. Together with HYPE, a driving force in sports innovation, we will not only broaden our perspectives with regard to new endeavors. I am also excited to see innovative ideas translated into strategic projects at, and adopted by, the DFB.”

Dr. Friedrich Curtius, General Secretary of the DFB
