Sarina Wiegman’s husband is the German economics professor and sports personality himself, Marten Glotzbach. Born October 26, 1969 Marten is 52 years old, merely a few months younger than Sarina herself.

The couple’s demand for privacy means that outside close friends and family not much is known as to how Sarina Wiegman met her husband and when exactly. What is clear is that they have been happily married for a few decades now.

Marten Glotzbach is estimated to have a net worth of around $3 million come the end of 2022. Here is how Sarina Wiegman’s husband accumulated his wealth.

What is Marten Glotzbach’s occupation?

Marten obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Commerce in 1994. He has been a prominent economics lecturer and is currently a professor at Sebroek College in the Netherlands, the place where Sarina comes from. This is not his only occupation though.

For the best part of 10 years while teaching economics Marten was taking lots of training courses to become a licensed football trainer and coordinator. Once gaining the right licenses Marten Glotzbach started a side career at Host Broadcast Services (HBS), which films major sporting events. His time at the company helped him to get involved in jobs as a youth trainer before working alongside his wife both during her time as head coach of the Netherlands and England.

Marten Glotzbach has made it clear that he doesn’t mind his wife being his direct boss and there are no indications that the family has any issues with that. Marten continues to lecture economics at Sebroek College too. He is also heavily involved with Sebroek College’s football program and is the main coordinator and organiser for women’s football events in the Netherlands.

Does Marten and Sarina have any children?

Sarina Wiegman’s husband has been a dedicated partner and the happy couple have 2 lovely daughters – Sarina and Marten. The family are even more secretive regarding their children and they refuse to reveal even the exact dates of their birth to the general public so we’ll honour that desire of theirs.

Sarina and Marten are growing away from the spotlights and they have even made all of their social media accounts fully private so no outside person could see what they are posting or what they are doing. It is not a secret that Sarina Wiegman’s husband and their kids enjoy their time together though and on the rare occasion the family decides to share publicly parts of their private life it’s usually Christmas photos with all 4 together and looking happy.
