The International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) has extended its long-term partnership with Viessmann up to and including the 2025-2026 season.

It will be the official title sponsor for the men's and women's FIS Ski Jumping World Cup and Nordic Combined World Cup tours and additionally the title sponsor of the FIS Ski Flying World Championships.

Viessmann, which is also a premium sponsor for the International Biathlon Union, has pledged to support the FIS sustainability activities.

"As a trusted partner, FIS will benefit from Viessmann's business solutions, and an energy efficiency calculation of the FIS headquarters will follow."
