GLS supports: sports
Committed to sports and the community
In 2018, GLS Poland is the main partner of the Lion Run, taking place near its headquarters in Poznań. The main goal of the Lion Run is not sporting success but to enhance the sense of community. The event brings together 3.500 sportspersons of all ages, who participate in several races. GLS takes care of attractions for the whole family, including entertainment for the youngest.
Extended engagement for national and international speedway
Starting with the 2018 season, GLS expands its support for speedway and gets involved with the most important competitions. GLS is Official Partner of the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series and the brand new Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations.
Nationally, GLS is the new official partner of the PGE Ekstraliga – while still being the sponsor of the Polish National Team.
Sponsoring the Poland National Speedway Team
Speedway riders are among the leading and most successful athletes in the country. GLS is a proud sponsor of the Polish National Team which won the Speedway World Team Cup Final 2017. GLS sponsors the team throughout the year, the company logo is visible not only on riders' clothing and motorbikes, but also around the raceways.
GLS joins Poland Business Run
Running with colleagues and friends together, for a good cause: More than 16,000 runners started in seven cities simultaneously for the foundation “Beyond Horizons”. GLS Poland supported three of these charity events as main sponsor. The races took place in Gdansk, Katowice, Łódź, Cracow, Poznań, Wroclaw and Warsaw. All entry fees and donations go to the foundation "Beyond Horizons" founded by Jasiek Mela. The charity provides people suffering from amputations with high-class prostheses.
Diving into water sports
GLS Poland supports freediver Magdalena Solich, the current world champion and world record holder in Dynamic No-Fins (DNF) pooldiving. She broke the old record and won the title in the AIDA 2016 Freediving World Pool Championships in Finland with a 185 m swim under water.
GLS Poland running ahead
The GLS Poland Running Team was formed in November 2016. Almost 20 ambitious runners represent our company successfully in running events throughout Poland (distances of 5 km, 10 km, as well as half marathons and marathons). GLS supports the Running Team with branded sports t-shirts and payment of starting fees.

GLS is happy to support the talented squad with jerseys, training equipment and travel expenses.
