Partner- & Sponsorships

Our Partners and Sponsors

     The University Sports Department collaborates closely with partners and institutions in the fields of science, sports and business.

During our ongoing collaboration with the LGBT+ sports club Leinebagger e.V. and the LGBT+ association Lesben- und Schwulen Verband Niedersachsen-Bremen (LSVD), we established the Hanoverian sports alliance called „FarbenSpiel“. As of now, it includes 17 alliance partners of sports clubs, federations, event organizers, organizations and further institutions located in the city or region of Hanover, that all focus on sports and sports management. 

FarbenSpiel allience was established to fight discriminiation of queer* people in sports. FarbenSpiel defends a fundamental value in our society - that no person is to be discriminiated against because of their sexual oientation.

All inclusive: Buddy Project for an inclusive & accessible SportCAMPUS was established in the course the shared initiative „Bewegt studieren – Studieren bewegt!“ of Techniker Krankenkasse and adh. This initiative provides support for exercise promotion programs for university students.
