Thursday, 18 June 2020
On Tuesday, the official application to help stop the spread of the coronavirus was launched in Germany. Now TSG Hoffenheim announced that they and all other Bundesliga teams will promote the app against the coronavirus on their jerseys.

The "Corona-Warn-App" smartphone app was developed by SAP, the main sponsor and kit sponsor of TSG Hoffenheim, in cooperation with Deutsche Telekom to contain the coronavirus pandemic by order of the German federal government.

The app is designed to protect against a further spread of Covid-19 by documenting the "digital handshake" of two smartphones. The app makes it possible to inform contact persons especially quickly if someone has become infected with the coronavirus. Particularly rapid information about a potential infection is currently the best way to contain the coronavirus.
