Huddersfield Giants have announced its new main sponsor and the biggest commercial deal in the club’s history.
Local emergency vehicle manufacturer, Venari Group, has been named as Huddersfield Giants’ main partner for the 2022 season and beyond, with their logo set to feature on the new kit which will be revealed in the next few weeks.
Club ambassador, Eorl Crabtree, who was at the frontline in negotiations with Venari CEO, Oliver North, said: “Venari is a local company that has demonstrated a desire and relentlessness to grow in size, quality and innovation during the toughest times in memory which, for me, makes them a perfect fit with the Giants who share an almost identical ambition.
“Just about every ambulance on the roads of every corner of Yorkshire is manufactured by these guys, and the work they’re doing with Ford Motor Company with firefighting vehicles and ambulances is genuinely revolutionary. Every time I visit Venari HQ it looks to be growing and improving which is exactly how I feel with the Giants at the moment, making us a perfect fit.”
Giants’ managing director, Richard Thewlis, said: “This is magnificent and welcome news for both the Huddersfield Giants and the game as a whole.
“Eorl and the entire team here have worked tirelessly to significantly increase our brand value in difficult times and with this announcement now made we can push forward with great confidence underpinned by a local company who share our ambitious plans for growth.
“There will be more such announcements to be made in the coming days ahead of our formal partners launch in early December.”
