Bauerfeind’s partnership with Dirk Nowitzki began in January 2016. He is the first global brand ambassador for Bauerfeind AG. The importance of family, a down-to-earth attitude, and a love of sports are what unite Bauerfeind and the basketball superstar. Dirk Nowitzki was a fan of Bauerfeind products long before the official partnership, saying: “I have to be able to rely on my body and Bauerfeind helps me to do that. Its products are world-class.”


Expertise, the desire to succeed, and team spirit are all values that Bauerfeind promotes. Elite athletes around the world rely on these high-quality products.
