“These events and their magnitude have affected us to an even greater extent as they are happening in our own backyard,” declared Fernando Carro, Bayer 04 CEO. “The most important thing now is to help each other quickly and without bureaucracy. We are in constant contact with the City of Leverkusen, Bayer AG and our fans who have already been involved in and around Leverkusen for days.”

One of the first decisions taken: Bayer 04 will support the ‘Leverkusen hilft!’ (Leverkusen helps) campaign organised by a community forum in the City of Leverkusen with emergency aid in the form of a donation.  Bayer 04 have supported the foundation in a number of community projects over the years.

In addition, Bayer 04 will support our fans via the club media channels, make the fan house in Leverkusen-Wiesdorf available for logistic purposes and directly help affected members of staff.
