Raising Stars

Our individual sponsoring program

What is "Raising Stars"?

Raising Stars is our sponsorship program for the individual promotion of selected players. Our sponsors are people who are prepared to pay most of a child’s school and education costs. Our goal is to enable as many players as possible to attend a renowned school. Since 2015, we have already been able to admit six children to the Raising Stars program.
