BVB Managing Director for the Asia Pacific, Suresh Letchmanan said “It’s great that we are able to offer a specific and comprehensive football excellence program to the students at DSTY and at the same time share our BVB knowledge and philosophy across the school. It will give students an amazing insight into what is it like to be trained the BVB way and also other aspects of the industry, such as the theory behind our coaching techniques and how we support the development of footballers.”

President of Evonik Japan, Dr. FLorian B. Kirschner believes that the partnership is a commitment for the future as it would shape young minds. 

“We think, BVB Evonik Football Academy all over the world is playing a key role in the efforts towards sustainability. It leverages the emotional power of football to make aware of its social values. I would like to congratulate on this Academy’s opening at DSTY and I am sure it will be a commitment to the future,” he said. 

Whereas, school director, Dr. Wolfram Schrimpf is excited about getting on board a football coach which he opines is an incredible value addition to the sports culture of the school. 

“This cooperation also represents a quantum leap in terms of promoting our highly motivated footballers at a performance level,” he stated.
