We are an official supplier to HSV!
In difficult times real fans become apparent
On Europe’s leading exhibition for electric automation, the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg we have raffled off an original HSV-jersey signed by the HSV-Bundesliga players. It was a gift by Alen Halilović who gave an autograph session on the WISKA stand of SMM in Hamburg.
Despite some teasing comments from some die-hard Bavarian soccer fans who addressed the currently challenging ranking of the HSV, it quickly became apparent who the true fans of the HSV were. And we are certain that the jersey will bring joy to its winner.
New signing meets new products: HSV new signing Alen Halilović on the WISKA stand at SMM
Alongside current product features which WISKA, supplier to industry, trade and shipbuilding, is now presenting at the SMM in Hamburg, the company from Kaltenkirchen provided a further highlight at the leading global trade fair of the maritime industry. Rising star and HSV new signing Alen Halilović visited the stand and signed autographs for visitors.
What a goal! WISKA is official supplier to HSV.
At the start of the year we sat together in Hamburg with colleagues from our English subsidiary. The main topic of conversation for the evening was the legendary Wembley goal. German colleagues were obviously convinced that it was not a goal. Our colleagues from WISKA UK thought differently of course. That is how it is when you are discussing the most famous goal in footballing history.
An idea came out of the discussion. The idea gave rise to a plan:
A ‘Wembley revival match’. A fun event for employees at which WISKA UK and WISKA Germany would face each other on the football pitch. History could be re-written. All very tongue-in-cheek, of course.
The company’s creative juices began to flow: how about holding the match in Hamburg at the HSV stadium, and taking our employees to the stadium on the HSV bus?
Words became actions: the match went ahead.
The ‘WISKA Wembley Revival Cup’ would be held on HSV’s ground. We met with officials from HSV to present our idea and the pieces just fell into place.
The result: WISKA will be an official supplier to HSV for the 2016/17 season! We are delighted to be able to announce this!
Legend meets legend: HSV legend Uwe Seeler at the ‘WISKA Wembley Revival Cup’
The ‘Wembley Revival Cup’, with WISKA facing the English subsidiary, was held on 28 June at the Hamburger SV ground. The surprise guest was HSV legend Uwe Seeler, who gave a first-hand account of that Wembley final.
On the matter of which of the WISKA teams the ex-international was supporting, Seeler declared: “This time I am neutral and the main thing here is friendship.” Seeler stayed until the end and like all of us, took the 8-4 friendly victory by the English WISKA team in good spirit.
