Functioning as an e-commerce business with strong team club servicing, WEPLAY is to be a TOP CEE provider of indoor sports products for individuals as much as for professional athletes and sports clubs. Just like our German mother company 11teamsports is the leading European player when it comes to football,  we aim to establish WEPLAY Volleyball, WEPLAY Basketball and WEPLAY Handball as the leading indoor sports brands for the CEE market

As a proud member of 11 Teamsports, we at Top4Sport have a strong base and know-how to build on, and we are ready to put it in action while developing WEPLAY further. 

We are currently shaping a new indoor sports team that will turn our vision and plans into reality. Do you wanna join our efforts?

  • Highly analytical environment. Big data technologies are a cornerstone of our success. If you like data, we will be a match made in heaven. 

  • Opportunity to realize your own ideas outside of your daily business: Would you like to create an event/project that links with our company vision and goals? Great - let's see how we can make it happen. 

  • We are as strong as our team! You can be sure to get supportive and friendly leaders and colleagues who care about each other and like to invest in people development.
