Well-equipped for the next heroic season


This season, the Heroes of Tomorrow are once again kitted out with the very best equipment:

In order to pull off a top performance powered by medi & CEP, they’ve received a personalised starter pack of medi supports, CEP tights and sports compression garments. 

These products are intended to help support the Bundesliga basketballers’ performance, have a preventative effect and promote healing in case of injury.

medi and medi bayreuth are keeping up the effort together


medi and medi Bayreuth together are continuing the forging of heroes out of the Bayreuth basketball players: The main and name sponsor medi is extending its commitment by two years until 2022. For optimal performance, medi and CEP support professional athletes with their high-tech products.

“Our players believe in themselves, in the Bayreuth location, the fans and the team. For us, the extension of medi’s commitment is a sign of trust. We wear medi in our name and on our jerseys, and together we can spread this very special spirit,” says Björn Albrecht, former managing director of medi bayreuth.

Perfect support for pro athletes


Steve Wachalski, former public favourite of the Bundesliga team medi bayreuth, puts his trust in his custom-made orthopaedic insoles by medi. “I was astonished by all the high-tech devices and professional, detailed gait analysis. It’s truly impressive how much knowledge goes into the making of these insoles.”
