Delow, who first joined ALBA when he was 12 years old, is playing with Gemrany’s Under-20 team this summer.
“I am happy that I was able to sign my first professional contract with ALBA and that I can continue to play in my hometown,” Delow said. “The decision to stay at ALBA was very easy for me: Here I find an optimal sporting environment in which to develop myself at the highest level over the next few years. It’s also great fun to be part of the culture that ALBA has created here. I can hardly wait to play in front of many fans again in the Mercedes-Benz Arena.”
