Since 2015, the MCI and the RAIDERS Tirol share a close partnership that ranges from sponsorship and campaigns to alumni events, free tickets, and joint merchandise. The motto "Let's win together" unites two dynamic, passionate and ambitious brands that consistently celebrate international achievements. In addition, some MCI students, alumni and staff are part of the RAIDERS football, basketball and cheerleading teams and play a key role in shaping the club's success story.
Combining sports and education is a common and successful approach of universities and colleges around the world. The partnership between the RAIDERS Tirol and the Entrepreneurial School® is unique in Austria and makes use of these promising synergies. Whether in American football, basketball or cheerleading - team spirit, determination and drive are just as essential in sports as they are in education.
Whether in European, Austrian or Youth League - the American football teams of the Raiders Tirol guarantee thrilling gameplay and spectacular touchdowns.

The Raiderettes offer a mix of impressive acrobatics, electrifying dance routines and unique entertainment filled with emotion and passion.
Since 2018, the SWARCO RAIDERS Tirol have also been at home on the basketball court and regularly celebrate victories in the second Austrian League.
You can feel the team spirit of the Raiders family off the field as well. Even if you're not into sports at all, the exciting home games will definitely change your mind.
Every RAIDERS Tirol home game is an experience in itself, especially when it comes to the European League of Football (ELF) games at Innsbruck's Tivoli Stadium. DJs, commentators, dance and acrobatic shows by the Raiderettes cheerleaders and much more make the games a unique sports festival. Following the US-American example, pre- and post-game events like Tailgate BBQ's and parties with players and cheerleaders round off a perfect gameday.
MCI students, alumni and staff can purchase free tickets for RAIDERS Tirol home games at the online ticket store. In addition, the Student Card allows you to purchase discounted tickets at the box office on game day.
