Your All-In-One Solution: The Baskets App Creates a New Digital Fan Experience!

BONN, ZUG, Monday 25th March 2024

Become part of the Baskets community and be closer to your team than ever before: Together with Deutsche Telekom AG and Blocksport, Telekom Baskets Bonn is releasing the new Baskets fan app, which is available to download from today for iPhone and Android smartphones in the App Store and Google Play Store. Interactive challenges, betting games, digital collectables, all news and statistics on the Champions League winner: Baskets fans now have everything in one place! The integration of the ticket and fan store as well as all live statistics of the Baskets team make the app the perfect companion before, during and after Game Day at the Telekom Dome.

Very important: the app is constantly being developed! “The Baskets app already offers numerous great features, but we want to expand it further together with our fans! We look forward to the feedback from our community and will design and expand the app together. You are part of the process and therefore always involved,” says Baskets press spokesman Marius Volkmann.

The APP is also part of the joint strategy with main sponsor Deutsche Telekom AG to further advance the digitalization of Bonn’s successful club in the coming years and thus strengthen Bonn as a basketball location.

“The APP is the right tool for all fans and opens up a new form of interaction for the club, fans, partners and sponsors. For the Baskets, this step means more visibility and reach and thus also completely new marketing opportunities – incidentally also a very good measure for the implementation of the new joint multi-sponsor concept,” says Dr. Henning Stiegenroth, Head of Sports & Group Sponsoring at Deutsche Telekom AG

Work is already underway on wallet integration. In future, it will also be possible to order drinks and food at Baskets home games directly via the Baskets app and pick them up at a Fastlane counter in the Telekom Dome without having to wait long.


Another highlight: from now on, the successful Baskets podcast HEARTBERG HOTEL will also be produced as a videocast and broadcast exclusively in the app. Hosts Benny and Kumbi open the doors of “Suite Caroline” every week and welcome Baskets players, officials and other exciting guests from Bonn to their new studio.

“Working together to launch the Telekom Baskets Bonn Fan App marks the beginning of our journey together and underscores our commitment to revolutionize fan engagement through Web3 and blockchain technology. This platform offers fans unparalleled experiences, from interactive missions to exclusive rewards, including VIP access and meetings with players. Our initiative is the first step towards the joint transformation of digitalization in sports.” – Vladimir Liulka, CEO of Blocksport

First use at the home game against Oldenburg

The Baskets app will be in focus for the first time at the upcoming easyCredit BBL home game against Oldenburg on March 26, 2024 at 8 pm. Planned activation measures include voting in the app on which player will be invited to the fan talk in the foyer after the game, competitions on the social wall and the chance to secure the first exclusive digital fan badges.
