BMW Open by FWU 2017 – Press Breakfast

26. Jan 2017

FWU will be the presenting sponsor of the tennis tournament BMW Open by FWU in Munich for the fourth consecutive year:

To kick off this year's preparations for the BMW Open by FWU which will start in less than 100 days members of the German sports press were invited for a brunch at MTTC Iphitos last week. The CEO of FWU, Dr. Mannfred Dirrheimer, attended the press conference alongside Michael Mronz, CEO of the organizers MMP, Dr. Fabian Tross, vice chairman of MTTC Iphitos and the tournament manager Patrik Kühnen.

"We are looking very much forward to this year's BMW Open by FWU, as the tournament is accompanied by a special occasion: The rebranding and repositioning of FWU - Forward You", Dr. Dirrheimer said.

"Our commitment exceeds a pure financial sponsoring – there is an enormous amount of personal involvement from various FWU employees around the BMW Open by FWU. We are strongly connected and personally committed to the tournament and its partners. To us, a partnership is more than just a promise" continued Dr. Dirrheimer.

"Our aim is to thrive only for the best results for all parties. With this goal in mind, we were able to grow continuously over the last 10 years – from a hidden champion to a global player in the life insurance business. The same is true for the BMW Open by FWU: The ATP tour wouldn't be what it is today without this tournament and I think it is fair to say that it has become a matter of heart to both the players and the guests. Therefore I think the BMW Open by FWU are not only for us, but for all participants and volunteers a personal matter.

We are looking forward to a week of exciting world class tennis on beautiful and family-friendly premises with the participation of our top class FWU tennis players: Gael Monfils (Nr. 9 of the ATP Singles Ranking), Roberto Bautista Agut (Nr. 16) and Fabio Fognini (Nr. 48). One of the highlights away from the center court will be this year's FWU Night on the 6th of May. After Mando Diao and James Morisson in the previous years, we guarantee an unforgettable evening: While world class athletes are competing for the tournament title, we will present an international top star on the eve of the finals", Dr. Dirrheimer promised.
