Robert Müller Fairplay Trophy presented by Covestro

Fairplay Trophy

Fair play and Covestro – two things that go well together! Fairness is essential not only in sport but also in the world of work. That’s why the core value of “fairness” is one of the six guiding principles of our company worldwide.

The “Robert Müller Fairplay Trophy” is awarded every year to the team that received the fewest number of penalty minutes, match penalties and disciplinary sanctions against individual players during the entire main season. The fairest team during the main season receives a cash prize of 10,000 euros from Covestro, which is used to support the winning team’s young talents.

“Ice hockey is a very intense and dynamic sport; playing takes a lot of courage. Courage plays a large role at Covestro as well, and it is one of our company values. We’re proud to represent the chemical and plastics industry as a partner to the DEL and the sport of ice hockey.”

Dr. Markus Steilemann, Chief Executive Officer Covestro

Covestro and the DEL


Covestro has been an official premium partner of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (German Ice Hockey League, or DEL) since the 2016/2017 season. The company and the league entered into a four-year partnership.

The Covestro logo appears on various surfaces: underneath the ice in all DEL arenas in Germany, on the referees‘ helmets, as well as on the backdrops for TV interviews. The partnership was expanded for the 2017/2018 season. In all 14 DEL locations, the kick plate is branded with the six Covestro colors. Covestro is also visible on the official puck of all DEL games.


Exceptional performance. Total safety.

Ice hockey is not only the fastest but also one of the toughest team sports in the world. The players’ bodies and equipment are subjected to extraordinary levels of stress and strain. As one of the world’s leading polymers companies, we develop high-tech materials that promote maximum performance. We want to contribute to making this sport safer and more innovative.

Since we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible, we aspire to be a real “game changer” for professional ice hockey. Through innovative application solutions using our premium products, we develop #GameChangingMaterials that can improve safety and performance levels in ice hockey.

As an “Official Innovation Partner” of the NHL club Penguins, based in Pittsburgh just as our North American Headquarters, we have initiated a research project we have called Rethink the rink. In cooperation with club representatives of the Penguins and students from world-renowned Carnegie Mellon University, our materials are being used as #GameChangingMaterials to develop solutions for an innovative boards system.

The objective of Rethink the rink is to further enhance players’ safety while maintaining all of the characteristics of the boards of a rink that are so important for the game itself. The findings of our research work in Pittsburgh are also benefitting our collaboration with Germany’s ice hockey league, the DEL.
