Borussia Dortmund, the German soccer giants, have today announced a new, long-term partnership with premium sporting experiences company Legends.

Under the agreement, the two parties will work together to create an e-commerce platform.

Legends’ global merchandise division will work closely with the Bundesliga club’s merchandising, IT, and e-commerce teams to develop “a more integrated, seamless international e-commerce experience with new and more comprehensive merchandise offerings.”

The team at Legends will also support Dortmund’s marketing by “focusing on sustainable growth in all international markets for the online shop.” 

Carsten Cramer, BVB managing director, said: “Partnering with Legends represents a significant milestone in our journey to offer the best possible e-commerce experience to our Borussia Dortmund fans worldwide.

“Legends’ international expertise in e-commerce and marketing coupled with the possibility of using an international fulfillment center to reduce shipping lead times and costs for fans worldwide were key factors in our decision to work with them.”
