Yokohama renews with Los Angeles Angels

Japan-based Yokohama Tire Corporation has put pen to paper on a new deal to remain as the official tyre partner of Major League Baseball's (MLB) Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

The agreement will make 2017 the eighth consecutive year of cooperation between the tyre brand and the Angels, and will again see Yokohama's logo placed prominently on the left centrefield position at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Along with its long-running deal with the Angels, Yokohama is also the front-of-shirt sponsor of English soccer team Chelsea.

The Angels finished fourth in last year's American League West Division, failing to qualify for the play-offs. They last won the West Division in 2014.
