Puppenkiste for FC Augsburg

MAN has been an official sponsor of FC Augsburg since 2015. The focus of this commitment is the MAN Lion’s Coach L from the fleet of Ludwig Tours, which serves as the club's team bus.

Moving comfortably through the season

The new team bus is a trusty companion on FC Augsburg's trips around Germany and Europe, and impresses with numerous special features such as electronically adjustable seats and leg rests, Wi-Fi access, and an LED “starry-sky” ceiling. Trainees at MAN installed a handmade pine cone, as seen in Augsburg's coat of arms, into the back step as a lucky charm. A personal highlight for MAN: The new bus is the first Bundesliga bus from the Bus Modification Center in Plauen.

Marine engines and Puppenkiste

The bus was handed over at MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Augsburg site. Part of the action: The team of Bundesliga pros and 150 MAN employees with quite a few FCA fans among them. The MAN Lion’s Coach L emerged from behind an 11,000 horsepower marine engine. The name the fans had chosen for the Augsburg team bus was also revealed during the presentation: Puppenkiste.
