CARPARISON will be sponsoring reigning English and European champions Exeter Chiefs for the duration of the 2021/22 campaign. The news follows the announcement that director of rugby Rob Baxter OBE has joined the Exeter-based leasing broker as a Brand Ambassador.
Carparison will also provide player sponsorship for Exeter Chiefs and England prop Harry Williams, as well as Exeter Chiefs Women and England centre Lauren Cattell. Williams, who has been part of England’s Six Nations squad this season, has been with the Chiefs since 2015 and has now represented his country 19 times. Cattell, another England international, has also represented her country at both 7s and 15s level.
Lisa Duncan, Sales and Marketing Director for the Chiefs, said: “As a club we are delighted to welcome Carparison on board for the 2021/22 season. It’s fantastic that two West Country brands with national recognition can support each other to mutual benefit.
“Already we have seen the relationship at work with Rob Baxter’s role as a Brand Ambassador and over time we expect that to get even stronger. Having the support of the local community and business sector is paramount to our ongoing success, so it’s fantastic that Carparison share our vision moving forward.”
Exeter-based Carparison specialises in all things personal and commercial leasing. Its team of leasing experts works with dealerships and funders across the country. Fans can expect to see the Carparison logo on the shorts of the new Chiefs home kit for the 2021/22 season, as well as Vanparison branding – the company’s newest enterprise that is due to launch in just a few weeks – in and around Sandy Park and the match-day programme.
Carparison General Manager, Matt Woodward, said: “We’re so pleased to be sponsoring the Chiefs for the upcoming season. It is another fantastic opportunity for us after getting Rob Baxter on board as our first Brand Ambassador. To now also be working with two England internationals is extremely exciting.”
