TipBet Looking to Boost Bremen’s Fortunes
They may have won the Bundesliga on four separate occasions but it’s been a barren few years for German side Werder Bremen. In 2015-16, they finished in a lowly 13th place in the table and as we head towards Christmas, things aren’t looking much better in the current campaign.
Relegation is by no means out of the question for Alexander Nouri’s men and some shrewd purchases may be needed in January if Bremen are to avoid the drop. In order to do that, some welcome funding will have to boost their transfer chest so the current sponsorship deal with Sportsbook TipBet is an important one.

It was announced prior to the 2016-17 Bundesliga campaign that TipBet would be the official betting partner to Werder Bremen for the whole of the season. There is no confirmation as to the length of the contract in question so it may be a one-campaign arrangement and finances have not been declared either but this will doubtless be a substantial sum for the Bundesliga outfit to utilise.
“We are delighted with the agreement for Tipbet to become our official betting partner,”
said Klaus Filbry, CEO of SV Werder Bremen.
“Partnering with a trustworthy sports betting company such as Tipbet will be an important part of our marketing strategy going forwards.”
Every top level club in Germany enjoys huge support and although Werder Bremen may be struggling in the wrong half of the Bundesliga table, they will regularly see crowds in excess of 40,000 pack into their Weserstadion. When TipBet announced the deal, they reported that Bremen were the fifth most watched team in the country with a total crowd of over 700,000 last season.
That’s an impressive amount for a side who are so far out of the European places and it helps to explain why Werder Bremen are such a big draw for an operator such as TipBet.
“With Werder Bremen we have not only acquired a very successful Bundesliga team on our side, but also a well-established European brand,”
said Philippos Naskos, TipBet’s product manager.
Wider TV coverage will also see TipBet’s name put in front of thousands of households across Germany and beyond while the operator will also see their logo placed on the club’s official website.
Werder remain a popular option for the TV companies as they have a number of experienced and respected players in their squad. Among the many internationals is high profile striker Max Kruse who has a healthy scoring record for the German national team.
Veteran Captain Clemens Fritz has also played for his country but perhaps the most familiar name on a global scale is 38 year old Peruvian Claudio Pizarro who enjoyed a successful spell at Bayern Munich.
Looking at their squad makes it surprising to see Werder Bremen’s league position but they are an entertaining unit, making them a regular choice for the TV broadcasters who boost TipBet’s exposure in return.
Werder Bremen have not won a major trophy since they lifted the DFB Pokal in 2009 and it may be some time before the club sees new silverware in their cabinet but they have the capability to build and enjoy success in the future.
The betting partner deal with TipBet may be seen as more beneficial to the club but Werder have a huge fan base and in the short term the operator will enjoy a lot of exposure for the entire length of this arrangement.
