Located in the heart of Dortmund lies Signal Iduna Park. Within its hallowed confines, you’ll find the “Borusseum”, a museum dedicated to the history of Ballspielverein Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund. Nestled in the trophy case, you’ll find a 6.5 kilogram trophy commemorating Die Schwarzgelben’s victory in the 2017 DFB-Pokal, a tournament victory that star forward Marco Reus factored prominently in.
Before pulling on the #11 for Der BVB, Marco started his football career playing for his hometown club Post SV Dortmund in 1994. He joined Borussia Dortmund’s youth ranks in 1996, and then made his Bundesliga debut in 2009 for Borussia Monchengladbach. After three productive seasons there, he was loaned to Dortmund and has plied his trade in the Westfalenstadion ever since. Reus’ unpredictability, tenaciousness, and his knack for finding the back of the net has proven vital for the team, as he’s tallied 115 times for his club across all competitions, including vital goals during their run to the 2012-13 Champions League Final.
Despite Germany’s 2012 Footballer of the Year drawing attention from some of the richest clubs in European football, Reus’ heart has told him to remain in the yellow and black, and in 2018 the team rewarded his skill and loyalty by naming him captain of the squad. The consummate teammate and German National Team member has helped lead his team to the top of the Bundesliga this year.
Marco Reus is known for trusting his instincts, and when it came to choosing a sponsor to give him the best gaming gear, his instincts led him to HyperX. Marco is tenacious and crafty on the pitch, but people might not be aware that he’s just as formidable in the digital domain. The FIFA ’17 cover athlete has a reputation for the accuracy of his strikes, but he’s also a force to be reckoned with when he’s going on killstreaks and calling in air strikes. So, if you find yourself lined up against Marco, expect the unexpected. He’s got all the moves and he’s powered by HyperX.
