Help us cheer on our football team!


Football fans: nVent HOFFMAN is a proud sponsor of the Austrian second division club team FC Blau-Weiss Linz.

As a company committed to designing, manufacturing, marketing, installing and servicing high-performance products and services, nVent HOFFMAN also is committed to encouraging and supporting excellence in other arenas – including sports.

Football is the No. 1 sport in the world – and it connects us all across regions and global communities,” said Rene Kellner, Sales Manager, nVent HOFFMAN, Europe. “So many of our employees, customers and partners grew up cheering for their own local teams. We chose FC Blau-Weiss Linz as our European team, because of its long tradition as a premier club and its roots in the steel industry. It’s a natural fit for us!

Part of nVent Electric plc (NYSE: NVT) (“nVent”), a global leader in electrical connection and protection solutions, nVent HOFFMAN offers the industry’s most comprehensive protection portfolio of electrical enclosures that meet global and local standards for a vast range of applications. 

Currently, FC Blau-Weiss Linz plays their home matches at their training site, Linzer Stadion in Linz, Austria. In 2023, they will play matches at Donauparkstadion, a new stadium being built to accommodate nearly 5,400 people (and multiple sports). 

We are thrilled to have nVent HOFFMAN cheering us on as a partner,” said Kurt Guttenbrunner, CFO, BW Linz. “We appreciate the opportunity to join our history as a team favorite of Austrian steel workers with nVent HOFFMAN’s legacy of producing specially designed steel enclosures to help protect people and equipment around the world. This partnership is very exciting for our club and our fans – and for football!
