A leading Wrexham motors business has agreed to sponsor a local football team.
Wrexham Volkswagen, based on the Rhosddu Industrial Estate at Rhosrobin, will have its name and logo emblazoned on the back of the Wrexham Fans FC away kit.
Wrexham Fans FC play in the Internet Football Association league, a league created to build bridges between internet-based football supporters.
The Wrexham team was only formed in 2012 and each week compete all over the UK. Like all IFA teams, they play their matches on a Saturday morning, usually against the same opposition as their parent club, prior to watching the ‘big match’ in the afternoon.
Wrexham Fans manager Dyfan Jones said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have secured sponsorship from Wrexham Volkswagen.
“Not only is it fantastic to have the world famous VW logo emblazoned on our away shirt, but it is also really gratifying to see a local business supporting local sport.”
Jane Hargreaves, brand manager of Wrexham Volkswagen which is part of the family owned Swansway group, said: “We are delighted to team up with Wrexham Fans FC and hope to develop a great relationship over the next two years that will offer exciting opportunities to both parties.
“We have been really impressed with how professionally the club operates, and it is refreshing to hear of the goals to build relationships with football fans across the UK.”
