In conjunction with the anticipated football match between BVB and the Johor Southern Tigers in Johor Bahru on 9 July 2015, Nikon Malaysia also conducted the “NIKON I AM FOOTBALL MOMENT PHOTO CONTEST 2015”. Nikon Club Malaysia members stand a chance to win a pair of grandstand tickets and an exclusively autographed BVB jersey by submitting their most creative version of a football moment.

Selected Nikon Club Malaysia members are given the opportunity to be the match day’s accredited photographers.

The partnership sees Nikon through its continuous partnership and support for numerous sporting tournaments in Asia.

About Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund is Germany's most intense footballing experience. Along with our club colours of black and yellow, the steadfast support and love of our fans is an expression of this intensity. Over 80,400 fans attended every home game in the 2014/2015 season – the best figures for a football club in Europe and even around the globe. And BVB set a new European record after selling over 55,000 season tickets again. BVB is one of the biggest and most successful football clubs in Germany. Since 1956, we have won eight German championships and three German Cups. We became the first German club to win a European trophy (the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1966) and the UEFA Champions League as well as the intercontinental cup played in Japan (in 1997). Our stadium, the Signal Iduna Park, was voted the best football stadium in the world by the London Times newspaper in 2009.
