Bayer Leverkusen looking for new sponsor

Bundesliga runner-up Bayer Leverkusen is looking for a new

sponsor following the withdrawal of an energy company from its

existing sponsorship deal due to financial difficulties.

Leverkusen said Friday that electricity supplier Teldafax – the

club’s main shirt sponsor since July 2007 – wants to save around

?13 million ($18.7 million) from the remaining two years of its

contract with the team to ”bolster the company.”

The club did not give any further details.
