Bundesliga Teams to Sport Sleeve Badge in Support of Refugees

All 36 teams participating in Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 matches next weekend will sport a special logo on the left sleeve in support of the integration of refugees.

Bundesliga Kits to Feature "Wir helfen - #refugeeswelcome" Logo

The refugee-supporting logo is seen on the left sleeve of the Bayern Munich shirt.



Commercial sponsor Hermes will clear its space on the left sleeve for the round of matches between September 18 and 20, with the logo of the "Wir helfen" (we help) campaign by the Bild newspaper worn instead.

Additionally, all clubs from the two leagues will continue supporting refugees in various ways, including the "Welcome to Football" program. Supported by the Bundesliga foundation, "Welcome to Football" is a nationwide integration program which aims to bring together locals and refugees through football. Read more about it here.
