FOR LEISTER, SWISS WRESTLING (SCHWINGEN) IS MORE THAN A SPORT
We have been committed to Swiss wrestling for decades. Why? Because Switzerland’s national sport, Swiss wrestling, or Schwingen in Swiss German, matches Leister perfectly. The values of Swiss wrestling agree with those held by our company: respect, fairness, teamwork concept, performance orientation, team spirit and pleasure in trials of strength. We also enjoy this sport. Leister employees are found among the spectators at many Swiss wrestling festivals. We maintain contact to active Swiss wrestlers and youth wrestlers as well as with the board of the Wrestling Association of Central Switzerland (Innerschweizer Schwingerverband, ISV). We also constantly attend various events within the Swiss wrestling family.
IT ALL BEGAN IN 1963
Leister began support the Swiss national sport, Swiss wrestling, back in 1963 in the form of awards and livestock prizes. Such livestock prizes for Swiss wrestling have since passed the magical number of 100.
THE ISV “LEISTER FUND” FOUNDED IN 2005
The promotion of youth and young Swiss wrestlers is particularly important to us. That is why we founded the ISV “Leister Fund” in 2005. We use this fund to finance various training camps, team uniforms and Swiss wrestling halls, among other things.
IN 2010 LEISTER AG BECOMES THE FIRST OFFICIAL ASSOCIATION SPONSOR
Following the introduction of the advertising regulations by the Federal Swiss Wrestling Association (Eidgenössischer Schwingerverband, ESV) in 2010, Leister AG was the first official association sponsor of the ISV. The respectful cooperation with the ISV and their activities on behalf of Swiss wrestling motivate our financial commitment.
SWISS WRESTLING IS THE FUTURE
We are pleased to continue both our personal and financial commitments to supporting and maintaining the Swiss national sport, Swiss wrestling. It is very important to us that the next generation is able to garner much willpower and energy from it in order to master the constantly growing challenges in both their professional and personal lives.
SWISS WRESTLING IS MORE THAN JUST A SPORT FOR LEISTER.
