Earlier this week, Deutschen Behindertensportverbandes e.V. (DBS) and Deutschen Paralympischen Mannschaft announced that BP Europa SE had signed on as a new national sponsor.



CEO of BP Europa SE Michael Schmidt was quoted by DBS as saying of the decision, “The motivation and top performances of athletes with disabilities greatly impresses me and they also serve as an inspiration for our company to do our best. […] That’s why we are particularly pleased to be supporting the athletes in the preparation and participation in the Paralympic Games in 2016 in Rio.”


It is the first time BP is sponsoring the German national Paralympic team.  The international arm had been one of the primary sponsors of the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London.
