BaySecur becomes Securitas

Thursday, August 17, 2017

The change was completed by the beginning of the new season 2017: Since the beginning of August 2017, the BaySecur GmbH Sicherheitsdienste has been operating under the name of Securitas Sport & Event GmbH.

Last year, Securitas increased its business shares in BaySecur to 100 percent. During this year's summer break, a name change and the adjustment of the corporate identity followed. Thus, important contents on the topics of "Steward and event services" and "Security solutions for the event sector" are now to be found on the Securitas Deutschland websites ( And also the uniforms have changed: Since the beginning of the new season, the security officers in the BayArena have been wearing Securitas clothes.

The contract for all security and control tasks in the BayArena was extended in 2016 and ensures the continuation of the long-standing and trusted partnership between Securitas and Bayer Leverkusen. Securitas is the market leader in the private security industry in Germany; the company actively supports numerous Bundesliga football teams and accompanies the DFB "Fanclub Nationalmannschaft" when they attend away games.

Dirk Dernbach, Managing Director at Securitas Sport & Event: "Following the official name adjustment, in the future, we will operate under the brand of the market leader. We will thus benefit from Securitas' high profile and the high level of trust the market leader has enjoyed for many years. Our goal remains the same: We will continue to do everything we can to ensure that the spectators in the BayArena can feel absolutely safe and fully concentrate on the sporting event. With great commitment, our employees will ensure that things run smoothly and safely during the matches, so that the spectators will mainly look back on great football events in the BayArena."
