The relationship comes focusing on the EA SPORTS fan bench which starts with Sunday’s home match against Eintracht Braunschweig at Signal Iduna Park which is arranged by SPORTFIVE. A competition is running where two lucky BVB fans will be able to sit on that bench and watch the team in action. You can enter this competition here.
