Scottish FA drive extension deal with Vauxhall

Carmaker Vauxhall and the Scottish FA have agreed a four-year extension on their existing deal, to run until July 2018, reports www.sportspromedia.com/ The partnership, originally established in January 2011, has been extended to encompass the Fifa World Cups in Brazil and Russia, despite the Scottish national team's failure to qualify for the 2014 tournament.

Stewart Regan, the Scottish FA chief executive, highlighted the benefits of Vauxhall's sponsorship for Scotland's women's, youth and disability teams, as well as the men's squad.

"I look forward to sustaining a prosperous partnership that will inspire Gordon Strachan's side into their Euro 2016 campaign, and Anna Signeul's side as they begin qualification for Fifa Women's World Cup 2015 and look towards Uefa Women's Euro 2017," he said.

"It has been the perfect partnership and the fact that the renewal was agreed well in advance of the current agreement expiring shows the Scotland sponsorship is really delivering for Vauxhall, and we have no doubt it will continue to do so."
