We move

Passion and commitment

We are an insurance group, of course, but deep down we are also passionate fans who love to get carried away.

So for us, it is just a matter of course that we are active as committed partners and sponsors in many areas of sport. This could mean sponsoring the kit of a small local club, acquiring the naming rights for international arenas, supporting handicapped athletes, or as the major partner of the DFB Cup, German football's premier domestic cup. Our aim is to encourage talented people and give them the courage to go further. We want to harness their enthusiasm so they give their best. We want to celebrate success together with them and help them pick themselves up after defeat – while providing fans truly unforgettable moments to enjoy.

As a far-sighted insurance group, it is our objective to develop propositions and ideas that benefit everyone and also meet the challenges presented by personal circumstances. We are aware of all the things that can happen – and our range of products is correspondingly diverse as well as sophisticated. Our support for David Behre, the Paralympic star is a good example of how we help individuals and give them encouragement and support, even when things are difficult.

We believe that everyone should have the chance to be their true selves and realise their goals.

Dr. Markus Rieß, CEO ERGO Group AG

Official partner of the DFB Cup

There is something uniquely fascinating about the DFB Cup of the German Football Association – and it seems to follow its own rules, as they say. In particular, it's the battles between the big fish and the minnows, or amateurs versus professionals that give it its exclusive appeal. It shows that with courage and enthusiasm, you can achieve anything. The final in Berlin is within the grasp of any team. ERGO is now the official sponsor of the DFB Cup, and we firmly believe –  the cup rewards the brave.
