The two entities are negotiating a contract for the German consultancy to be the official business consultant at the club.

Scheer Group is a German consulting firm established in 2010 that offers clients support with business model transformation. The firm relies on digital enhancements, and helps clients with leveraging digitalisation to optimise and improve efficiency at every stage of their operations.
