Ismaning, January 2, 2020 – New appearance for Group holding company: The sports media company Constantin Medien AG has changed its company name to Sport1 Medien AG. The amendment to the Articles of Association resolved at the Annual General Meeting on July 24, 2019 was entered today in the Commercial Register (Munich Local Court, HRB 148 760) and thus became effective. The change of name is also accompanied by a change in the Company's purpose, which was also resolved by the Annual General Meeting in July last year and which is now even more strongly aligned to the Company's activities in the digital sector. The Management Board of Sport1 Medien AG will continue to consist of Olaf Schroeder as CEO and Dr Matthias Kirschenhofer as Chief Officer Legal and Finance.

SPORT1 MEDIEN Group covers entire value chain in sports

With its subsidiaries Sport1 GmbH, Magic Sports Media GmbH, Match IQ GmbH, PLAZAMEDIA GmbH and LEITMOTIF Creators GmbH, Sport1 Medien AG covers the entire value chain in the sports sector:

SPORT1 is the leading 360° sports platform in the German-speaking region with its TV, online, mobile, audio und social media channels. In December 2019, the sales department, which was previously part of Sport1 Media GmbH, was also integrated under the umbrella of Sport1 GmbH in order to further optimize the interaction between product and marketing.

In addition to the activities of SPORT1, the corporate portfolio of Constantin Medien AG includes MAGIC SPORTS MEDIA as a marketing company in the betting, poker, casino and lottery sectors, Match IQ as the sports event and consulting agency for associations, leagues and clubs for internationalization, match day management and the organization of friendly matches, tournaments, training camps and trips abroad, PLAZAMEDIA as the leading content solution provider in the sports and entertainment area for all media channels and LEITMOTIF as a consulting unit and provider of integrated communication solutions for companies and brands. These companies continue to focus their business activities also on third-party customers.

Following the founding of MAGIC SPORTS MEDIA in March 2018 and the acquisition of a majority stake in Match IQ in August 2018, SPORT1 MEDIEN Group can offer services along the complete value chain in sports business – from event organization and production on site to media coverage with live, highlight and news reporting on TV and digital to marketing on-ground and cross-media. This market positioning offers unique opportunities for customers and partners in the German-speaking region, including advertising companies and agencies, media houses, platform providers, sports associations, leagues and clubs.
