Toyo continues Fortuna Duesseldorf sponsorship

Toyo Tires has signed a contract sponsoring German Bundesliga team Fortuna Duesseldorf until 2022. During the past four seasons of sponsorship, Toyo has followed the team on its journey from Bundesliga 2 to Bundesliga 1. Toyo Tires was the first tyre company to become a sleeve sponsor of a football team.

The Japanese tyre brand later extended its support to include all training and warm-up kit as well. In addition, the Toyo logo can be seen on the digital referees’ board (see picture).

In the UK, Toyo Tyres sponsored Leicester City during its famous Premiership-winning season.
