Rüsselsheim.  The fans of fine football can look forward to a highly attractive season opener. For the second time, the OPEL CUP will take place in the OPEL ARENA. On July 27, three weeks before the new Bundesliga campaign kicks off, Bundesliga outfit and Opel partner club 1. FSV Mainz 05 will welcome two famous European heavyweights to the OPEL ARENA in Everton FC and Sevilla FC. The Arena in Mainz has been named after Opel for three years and the Rüsselsheim-based brand has been an exclusive partner of 1. FSV Mainz 05 since 2012. During the OPEL CUP 2019, the Opel Blitz will shine on the LED boards around the stadium and all other communication platforms.

Everton FC has one of the longest traditions of any Premier League club England. Liverpool FC’s local rival, were founded in 1878, and have played more seasons in English top flight than any other club. Everton regularly finish in the top 10 in England, finishing eighth last season and only narrowly missing out on qualification for the Europa League.

Elsewhere, the second guest at the OPEL CUP 2019 is one of the most successful clubs in Europe in this decade. With Sevilla FC, the Europa League winner of the years 2014 to 2016 comes to Mainz. The club from Andalusia once again managed to secure direct qualification for the Europa League for the coming season.

The teams will play each other in a round robin format with each game lasting for two times 30 minutes. The Mainz players will also host a big stadium festival for all fans on the tournament day. The countless activities around the OPEL ARENA will guarantee a wonderful summer day full of fun and games for fans of all ages. Opel will also be exhibiting its latest models around the stadium.

Elsewhere, Opel is a strategic partner of Borussia Dortmund and since the 2017/18 season also present with the Opel Blitz on the shirt sleeve of BVB. A particularly close relationship exists with the coach of Liverpool FC: Champions League winner Jürgen Klopp is Opel brand ambassador and passionate Opel Insignia driver since 2012. In addition, the Rüsselsheim brand promotes grassroots sport with the BVB FAMILY CUP, in which children and adults form mixed teams.
