New BBL season, new game plan for MHP RIESEN!


MHP RIESEN signal intention for new season at press conference in Ludwigsburg Residential Palace.

Ludwigsburg, 26.09.2013. The MHP RIESEN held a press conference in the "Spielpavillon" (Games Pavillon) of the Ludwigsburg Residential Palace just before the start of the new Beko Basketball Bundesliga season.

Alexander Reil (President, MHP RIESEN)
John Patrick (Head Coach, MHP RIESEN)
Dr. Ralf Hofmann (Chairman of the Executive Board, MHP)
Ingo Guttenson (Head of Marketing, MHP) as well as
Michael Stockton (Point guard, MHP RIESEN)

were all present to discuss the expectations and sporting targets for the coming season. For head coach, John Patrick, it is not just about the standings. He wants the newly formed troop to give a much better account of itself than the RIESEN did last season. "We want to show how much it means to us to play for this team, we will work hard and be good ambassadors for Ludwigsburg" emphasised Patrick.

"If we put in the hard work - and I can promise you we will - then the results will come." explained Alexander Reil. The team must get this feeling across to the fans. It is very important that the MHP RIESEN are a real team and not just "players" continued club president Reil. He is sure that coach John Patrick will be able to find the right balance between the players enjoying their game and the required seriousness and singlemindedness needed for success.

"As the new naming rights sponsor of MHP RIESEN, we wish the entire team a BBL season that will stand out - like our consultancy - due to its excellence. Practicing what we preach is an integral part of our corporate philosophy. This is why we are looking forward, together with the fans, to exciting games and a great atmosphere in the MHPArena Ludwigsburg." says Dr. Ralf Hofmann.

The BBL season 2013/2014 will kick off for the MHP RIESEN with a game against the "Eisbären Bremerhaven" (Bremerhaven Polar Bears) on October 3 at 17:00. You can find more information online at
