While it is currently difficult to organise sports events owing to the health crisis, BGL BNP Paribas and the Luxembourg Football Federation (Fédération Luxembourgeoise de Football, FLF) have sent a strong signal for the sport in Luxembourg by signing an extension to their partnership for the next three seasons at the bank’s Kirchberg headquarters on 17 September 2020.

The agreement was signed by Béatrice Belorgey, Chair of BGL BNP Paribas’ Executive Committee and Country Head of the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg, Thierry Schuman, member of the BGL BNP Paribas Executive Committee, Paul Philipp, President of the FLF and Christian Hess, Chair of the FLF Finance Committee.

Upon signing the agreement, Béatrice Belorgey stated that “as the new Chair of the bank’s Executive Committee, I am delighted by this partnership. Indeed, the worlds of business and sport share many values. For more than 10 years, BGL BNP Paribas has been the FLF’s main sponsor, and we are proud to support this immensely popular sport in Luxembourg.”

Paul Philipp added “we are very pleased that we can continue to count on BGL BNP Paribas. This partnership not only allows us to continue to champion football in Luxembourg, but also to inspire young people rising through the ranks.”

The season for the “BGL Ligue”, the Luxembourg football league, began in August.
