Vauxhall retain England driving seat

Vauxhall Motors has extended its sponsorship of the England national soccer team for a further four years to 2018, reports SportsPro.

The carmaker’s new deal with The FA includes support for all 24 of England’s teams until July 2018, therefore covering that year’s Fifa World Cup in Russia.

Vauxhall’s current agreement, which sees the company serve as the official vehicle supplier of The FA, Wembley Stadium and St. George’s Park, was due to expire in July 2014.

Under the terms of the new agreement Vauxhall becomes the presenting sponsor of England content on FATV, the FA’s online channel, which will be developed and distributed with the carmaker’s support.

The FA’s head of sponsorship, Peter Daire, who led negotiations with Vauxhall, said: “This renewal, well over a year before the current agreement expires, shows the England sponsorship is really delivering for Vauxhall and will continue to do so.

"It also testifies to the excellent relationship we have with Vauxhall and the support we have received from all their staff, which we are extremely grateful for."
