Sports connect

Sports connect people across borders and motivate them to be fair and perform to the best of their ability, regardless of the discipline. Deutsche Bank has promoted competitive sports for decades.

Since 1955, we have supported the renowned World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen. In addition, with the Deutsche Bank Equestrian Sport Academy we support young riders.

As a national sponsor of the German Sports Aid Foundation, Deutsche Bank promotes top collegiate athletes, thus helping young talents engage in competitive sports during their studies. The partnership with the football club Eintracht Frankfurt is building a bridge between competitive and mass sports.
