About us

Why us?

Let's start with what we are NOT: We are not a corporation. How can you tell? For a conversation with the boss, it is not necessary that two assistants coordinate an appointment for next week, you just have to call us. +49 170 1122210. So simple. (Or you can send a WhatsApp - whichever you prefer) By the way, conversations with everyone else work the same way.

It works because we want it to. We love what we do and we always have time and desire for an exciting new project, a PR or social media challenge.

This passion, this "desire to win" (as Jürgen Klopp calls it), can be seen in the results: Although we only started in 2015, we already work with around 20 professional athletes, and have negotiated countless sponsorship deals and campaigns. Our reputation speaks for itself, and are respected within a European network of journalists, marketing agencies, marketers and social networks.

That's why us.

Our TEAM

David Diallo
Motion Designer, former Bayern Junior, Sports Economist

Since his childhood, two hearts have been beating in his chest: one for sports, the other for motion design. Our German-Senegalese is the creative head in our team; whether photo, video or design - Dave always has the right implementation ready! As a former football player and US sports fan, he rounds off our sports-crazy team perfectly!

Dominik Fischberger
Communications manager, amateur soccer player, DIY king

Whether it's football, winter sports, basketball or darts - there is hardly a sport that Dominik doesn't follow or even practice himself. Fittingly, he studied sports management and consequently ended up in our sports-mad team. And if your washing machine breaks down at three in the morning, he's your man!

Dennis Flügge
Head of Social Media, addicted to "Mate", 24/7 football & social media

Dennis says "Moin" at any time of day. Our man in the north - who actually lives in "Deutsche Bahn" - learned his trade at VfL Wolfsburg and Hannover 96 as well as in the Bundesliga editorial department of the DFL and as Social Media Manager at Jung von Matt Sports. With us, he not only passes on his know-how, but also takes our social media area to the next level! We will then teach you the "Servus".

Florian Greß
Head of communication, football fan, strategist

Our man from Lower Franconia for the perfect press story - whether national or international. A burning passion for soccer, the Tour de France, Twitter, European cities & Netflix. The communications graduate has been on board since 2015.

With us athletes meet their perfect matching brands. Some call it win-win. We call it „Let‘s play forward“.

Stefanie Keilwerth
Accountant, Berchtesgaden native, mother of two

Bookkeeping and Steffi - a perfect match for us! Our accountant from Berchtesgaden not only brings a breath of fresh air to our team, but also ensures that all income and expenditure is in perfect order. No receipt should be missing here!

Felix Ladwig
Communications Manager, Barista, Analyst

Felix not only brings the "desire to win", but also analyses everything that is going on in the social media world. The winning mentality runs in the blood of the enthusiastic FC Bayern member. In addition to his many years of agency experience for top-class customers from industry and the automotive sector, he is an avid coffee lover with a barista training. You need a workshop? Let us know!

Hubert Raschka
Founder, sports freak, marketing manager

Our enthusiast from Berchtesgaden. Speaks fast, rides fast (preferably by bike through the mountains) and quickly solves problems. Practically speaking, he has everything necessary for this job: journalism studies and many years of experience as marketing manager (Festina Uhren, TSV1860 Munich). Constantly online and alert since social media has been around. Today he takes care of everything - from the worldwide campaign launch to why the fridge is always empty so quickly.

Stanislav Schupp
Communications Manager, language talent, passionate BVB supporter

On the search for the perfect journalist expertise? Whether it’s interviews, behind the scene stories or simple press work in front of the laptop - our native Ukrainian Stani knows all aspects of journalism. In his spare time our language talent is a passionate amateur soccer player.

Jana Stolp
Social media manager, fashionista, passionate groundhopper

Jana is a breath of fresh air in our ranks. Our Berliner-by-choice not only always has an easy-going smile on her face, but our sports management graduate has been helping out since day one as if she had been with us for years. She transfers her organizational skills 1:1 to her projects - happy to have you in the team, Jana!

Srecko Vucur
Agency manager, organizational genius, groundhopper

The father of two with Croatian roots has already gained experience at several well-known digital agencies. Because he wanted to combine his passion for football with his agency experience, he ended up at We Play Forward. As an efficiency engine, he ensures that our start-up runs smoothly.

Stefanie Winkler
Accountant, sea lover, organization queen

Anyone can play on the pitch - but to educate a bunch of crazy sports freaks about correct travel expense accounting - THIS is the real Champions League. She is the secret brain of the company and holds everything together behind the scenes. Steffi is currently on maternity leave.

It can be really competitive, what networks, fans and clients want from their stars on social media. But don‘t worry: We train the best.

"Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships."
