Mats Hummels signs with Apple Music

Apple Music, the music streaming service of technology giant Apple, has announced Bayern Munich and Germany soccer star Mats Hummels as a brand ambassador. 

The 27-year-old central defender will lend his image to a series of advertising campaigns in his homeland, using the tagline ‘No matter where, when: With Apple Music I always have my favourite music’.

Apple Music recently agreed a partnership with German telecommunications company Deutsche Telekom, which is the lead sponsor of Bayern Munich, to promote the music service in Germany. 

Hummels joined Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in 2016 from domestic rivals Borussia Dortmund, for whom he made 225 appearances. He also has 55 caps for his country and was a starter in the team that won the 2014 Fifa World Cup.
