Leasing Options Announces Partnership with Preston North End Football Club
Leasing Options is proud to announce that it is now a partner of Preston North End Football Club.
The UK’s leading car leasing company has confirmed a multi-year partnership agreement with the EFL Championship club as part of its postponed 30th year anniversary celebrations.
Leasing Options joins Preston North End as a top tier partner and takes sponsorship of one of the club’s stands within the stadium. The all-new branding ‘Sponsored by Leasing Options’ for 'The Invincibles’ Pavilion will be unveiled at the forthcoming Liverpool EFL cup game.
As part of the agreement, and Leasing Options ongoing commitment to grassroots sport, the leasing company will also become official partner of the Preston North End Community and Education Trust (“PNECET”) Kicks (“PLKicks”) football programme.
Mike Thompson, Chief Operating Officer at Leasing Options, said: “We’re so pleased to finally unveil some of our exciting plans to celebrate our delayed 30th anniversary - especially announcing this partnership with Preston North End.
“As a club, Preston North End is a great example of football and everything the beautiful game stands for. It’s known for being the home of some of football’s true legends – Sir Tom Finney, Bill Shankly and Tommy Docherty – to be able to associate with such a legendary club is fantastic and something we are truly proud of. To have our name and branding adorning this stand is a proud moment for our business.
“Leasing Options has been partnering with various sports clubs over the years, including Lancashire Cricket Club, St. Helen’s Rugby Club and the Lancashire FA grassroots football club of the year Moss Bank Football Club. This latest partnership further cements our commitment and passion of supporting grassroots sport and ultimately investing in the future.”
As part of this partnership, Leasing Options will have its presence widely across every element of the club including, inside and outside stadium signage, branding running along the LED boards surrounding the perimeter of the pitch and features within the match day programme. Supporters can also expect to see Leasing Options feature across Preston North End social media channels, whilst also providing different events at selected games in the fan zone with fun activities for the family. There's a plan to involve the first team squad in a number of activations that hopefully the Preston North End faithful will be able to enjoy and appreciate.
In addition to the above, Preston North End fans will also be able to access special deals to lease a vehicle from Leasing Options.
Thompson continued: “For Leasing Options, this is a real demonstration of our love and pride of being founded, and still based, within the North-West. We can’t wait to build on this partnership and look forward to sharing the great plans that we have for the next 12 months.”
Peter Ridsdale from Preston North End said: “Everyone at Preston North End is excited to welcome Leasing Options to the ‘Lilywhites’ fold. To have such a well-known, North-West based, successful family business be part of our club is fantastic and we cannot wait to help the whole Leasing Options team celebrate its well-deserved 30th anniversary.
“The new signage and branding will be in place for the televised cup game on Wednesday 27th October, as we wanted to kick start this partnership as soon as possible.
“We pride ourselves on our community grassroots programme, and to have a company as likeminded and committed to the next generation, is fantastic for us and makes us even more excited for the future.”
