German Vintners are “on the ball” with the 2006 FIFA World Cup GermanyTM

German wine-growers will be pleased about the contract that the German Wine Institute, Mainz, Germany, has signed with world football’s governing association, FIFA. The agreement gives the German Wine Institute the exclusive right to market German wines throughout Europe using the official logo of the 2006 FIFA World Cup GermanyTM or the illustration of the FIFA World CupTM trophy.

The license enables the German Wine Institute to offer German wine-growers a unique and exclusive opportunity to showcase their wines at all official events organized by the FIFA World CupTM Organization Committee, particularly in conjunction with hospitality for VIPs.

With bottles of German wine in hand, Petra Zimmermann, the new German wine queen, and Franz Beckenbauer, president of FIFA’s organizing committee in Germany, set the stage for a warm welcome to the 2006 FIFA World Cup GermanyTM.
