Investec renews with Tottenham Hotspur
Investec has renewed its shirt sponsorship deal with Premier League soccer club Tottenham Hotspur for another year.
The financial services company's logo will again appear on the front of the London club's playing shirts for its games in cup competitions this season - the Uefa Europa League, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup. Autonomy software brand Aurasma remains the Tottenham Hotspur shirt sponsor for Premier League matches.
Details of the agreement - which extends a deal first agreed ahead of the 2010/11 season, when Tottenham played in the Champions League - have been announced as Spurs prepare to return to Europa League action at home to Italian club Lazio on Thursday. Financial terms have not been revealed. Reports at the time of the original deal valued Investec's commitment at an annual US$4 million, though its fee may not match that this time around with Tottenham participating in lower-profile European competition.
Raymond van Niekerk, the global marketing director at Investec, said: "It is a pleasure to extend our association with Tottenham Hotspur. We continue our partnership with a club that complements our brand and gives us the excitement of being involved with world class football. We have enjoyed some exciting cup runs, reaching the Champions League quarter final two seasons ago and the FA Cup semi-final last year and are looking forward to this season's cup competitions with great anticipation."
Tottenham Hotspur head of partnerships Fran Jones added: "We're delighted that Investec has decided to continue as the club's domestic and European cup shirt sponsor. We have worked closely with Investec over the past two years on a number of successful campaigns both across the UK and whilst on tour in South Africa and we look forward to continuing this close relationship over the coming season."blog comments powered by Disqus
