WINTERSTEIGER AG raffled off 3 team kits at the Ried district indoor soccer championships, with Union Taiskirchen, SV Schildorn, and TSV Aurolzmünster emerging as the lucky winners.


WINTERSTEIGER has been sponsoring local youth soccer for 7 years. Out of all the teams taking part in the district indoor championships, three are drawn from the raffle and fitted out with a new team kit. “We don’t want to favor any one particular club and instead want to support every young person who is enthusiastic about soccer,” explains marketing director Franz Gangl. All 20 clubs have already won once and every team’s name went into the hat once again this year.


WINTERSTEIGER – which will be celebrating its 70th anniversary this year – is deeply rooted in the region. Many of the 600 employees come from the Innviertel and Hausruckviertel regions and are active in soccer clubs themselves. Over 80 teams comprising 800 children from U8s to U13s compete for the regional championship title.
