Swansea City are pleased to announce the return of local sponsor Low Cost Vans as the Swans ‘Official Commercial Vehicle Partner’ for the forthcoming 2020-21 Championship campaign.
The Neath-based business will also retain its sponsorship of the seats in the club’s dugout, a prime, in-demand sponsorship position at the club due to the airtime the seats get during televised games.
The club successfully negotiated a new deal with the football club having overcome the challenges of COVID-19 and lockdown in recent months. However, with people now returning to work, demand at the business is strengthening and the business wanted to maintain the continuity of what has been a long and fruitful partnership.
Low Cost Vans has been established since 1997 and is one of the UK’s leading providers of van leasing and van contract hire for new vans to businesses and private individuals. It has enjoyed an association with Swansea City for almost a decade now.
Rod Lloyd, Managing Director of Low Cost Vans, said:
“As a lifelong member of the Jack Army, I didn’t think twice about renewing our partnership with Swansea City.
“This will be our ninth year working together, and it has been a very fruitful and positive partnership for both of us.
“As a business, we have been forced to navigate challenges in recent months as society has battled COVID-19. But I am pleased to say that, as lockdown has eased, we are very much back on track and we have been helping our customers get back to work and back on the road.
“I’m really looking forward to the start of the season, and I hope our contribution can play a part in helping the Swans rediscover the style of play which took us to the Premier League.”
Mark Davies, Global Head of Partnerships and Sales, said:
“We were overjoyed to continue our relationship with Low Cost Vans as the main commercial vehicle partner. Working with one of the most established lease hire companies is great for us. There’s always a buzz around renewing a partnership with a well-recognised brand synonymous with the Swans.
“It also adds so much weight to our corporate offering and community representation, the Football Club remains the key showcase for the Swansea Business Community and it’s vital to rely on Rod’s support as well as the many others we’ll be announcing over the summer for the forthcoming season.”
Chris Pearlman, COO, echoed Mark’s comments:
“Since day one I’ve always stated how important sponsorship and commercial income is to the growth of this football club, none more so for this season.
“Having spent time with Rod and his business during this time his backing of the Swans is unquestionable, and I’d like to personally thank him for his commitment in the past and his continued support for this season.”
