Derby County sign shirt sponsorship deal
Derby County have confirmed that Avon Tyres will be their official shirt sponsor for the 2017/18 season.
Avon Tyres will have their logo on the front of Derby's playing shirts throughout the upcoming season, and the brand will be advertised throughout the club’s Pride Park Stadium.
The deal sees the tyre manufacturer upgrade its partnership with Derby, having previously been the clubs’ back-of-shirt sponsor since 2015.
“We’re delighted that Avon Tyres is our new main shirt sponsor for this season,” said Ashley Peden, Derby County’s director of partnerships. “Everyone is aware that they were the back of shirt and shorts sponsor last season, so we’re thrilled that they are making the step up for the current campaign. Both Derby County and Avon Tyres are well-established and long-serving brands in this country, sharing a great deal of synergy, and we’re looking forward to delivering a positive partnership moving forward.”
“We believe this is a fantastic platform for us to promote our brand in the number one sport in the country,” added Luis Ceneviz, managing director for Cooper Tire & Rubber Company. “Avon Tyres and Derby County have a great deal of heritage in the UK, making it a fitting partnership. We are looking forward to the future and Derby County pushing for a place in the Premier League.”
