Motorpoint has followed up the opening of its new-look showroom in Glasgow with a sponsorship deal which will see the business support Ladbrokes League Two football club Clyde FC.
The independent car supermarket operator has provided the club’s manager, Danny Lennon, with an executive car and will look at how to support its various community programmes across North Lanarkshire from the club’s base in Cumbernauld as part of the deal for the 2018/19 season.
Clyde FC is Scotland’s first Community Interest Company and has had a strong start to the season – currently occupying one of the play-off positions after five games.
Adam Gilmore, general manager of Motorpoint Glasgow, said: “We are delighted to have teamed up with Danny Lennon and the team at Clyde FC. We love the ethos of the Community Interest Club and are keen to play our part in supporting the local community in North Lanarkshire.”
Norrie Innes, Chairman of Clyde FC, added: “Motorpoint prides itself on driving dreams and they certainly have helped Clyde FC pursue its ambitions by getting our Manager Danny Lennon mobile – thus enabling him to promote our community and footballing development programmes.
“As chairman I am personally excited about the potential for this relationship to grow and develop into a long term mutually beneficial partnership.”
