+++ BMW to set new benchmarks at Bundesliga opener on 29th September 2023 +++ High-tech, glass, video sports floor from Bavaria to be used at BMW Park +++ Innovative technology presents many opportunities for a whole new spectator experience +++ First competitive match for world champions Andreas Obst, Isaac Bonga and Niels Giffey +++


Munich.
The partnership between BMW Munich and FC Bayern Munich Basketball GmbH, which was launched in 2023, has set itself four goals: sporting success, sustainable mobility, social engagement, and a premium experience for spectators at BMW Park. BMW is making a statement at the opening match of the season, presenting FC Bayern Munich Basketball and the easyCredit Basketball Bundesliga with a world premiere: for the first time, a league match will be played on a high-tech video sports floor.

When FC Bayern Munich Basketball and Mitteldeutscher BC face off on Friday 29th September (20:00), the presentation of this indoor sporting event will be launched into a new dimension. The floor will also provide a fitting way to welcome and honour world champions Andreas Obst, Isaac Bonga and Niels Giffey at their first competitive match since the DBB team’s thrilling victory in Manila.

“When we entered into the partnership with FC Bayern Munich Basketball, we promised to make BMW Park a sports and event arena, which is an attraction both in and for the sport-mad city of Munich,” said Bernd Döpke, Head of BMW Munich. “The first league match at BMW Park on this high-tech floor is an absolute highlight in this regard, and shows emphatically that BMW is branching out in a different direction and taking on a pioneering role when it comes to both technology and visitor experience.”

The ASB GlassFloor was developed in Bavaria and is capable of showing visually impressive graphics, displayed across the entire court. Furthermore, real-time data like player and ball tracking systems can also be displayed seamlessly, taking the spectator experience to a whole new level.

“We are thrilled about the commitment of our partner BMW, which is making this spectacular event possible," said Marko Pesic, CEO FC Bayern Munich Basketball. “I've known about this technological innovation for a while, and I can only urge our fans to take a look and come to the arena. This will be a one-of-a-kind experience! Once again, a big thank you to BMW for making this happen. Our players, who got a first impression last week at a Meet & Greet event in the BMW Welt, are also excited.”

Previously, the floor was used at the FIBA U19 Women's Basketball World Cup and delighted both the fans and the players, who were full of praise for the playing properties of the innovative surface. Moreover, the risk of injuries is significantly lower on the joint-friendly ‘LumiFlex’ floor compared to a conventional surface.

The innovative floor consists of two 5-millimeter-thick safety glass panels laminated with a safety film. The glass covers a specially designed LED display, which is mounted on aluminum elements. This design provides a very consistent and athlete-optimized elasticity and shock absorption . The deeply etched surface with embedded ceramic points ensures the right grip.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at www.bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
