Farmers Skoda Nottingham has signed a sponsorship deal with the Nottingham Panthers ice hockey team. The retailer is supplying three of the team’s players with Skodas for a year.
The Panthers are one of the top teams in the country, regularly attracting crowds of over 6,000 supporters to home games. Player Coach Corey Neilson, Team Captain Danny Meyers and Bruce Richardson are the lucky players who will be driving the Skodas, complete with Nottingham Panthers and Farmers Skoda decals.
The players are delighted to be driving Skodas for the year. Corey Neilson said of his Fabia Estate: “We love it. It’s great on gas and is a good size. I’m a huge guy and I have two kids so it’s perfect! It’s everything my family needs.”
Danny Meyers has a Fabia Hatch, which he says is a dream to drive: “It’s really smooth and excellent around the city.” Bruce Richardson is driving a Roomster. He said: “It’s really comfortable and there’s plenty of room for my hockey gear, the kid’s stroller and lots more stuff. Plus it’s really comfortable and easy to drive.”
Farmers' sponsored match took place on Saturday 27 September), with the Panthers enjoying a 5-1 win over the Cardiff Devils. The retailer also took the opportunity to promote the New Superb by displaying two of the cars on the concourse outside the Nottingham Arena.Published 10 October 2008
