Leeds United designates local sponsor as official vehicle partner

Premier League side Leeds United has named local vehicle solutions company AMT as the top-flight club’s official vehicle partner.

Headquartered in West Yorkshire, AMT will offer an extensive and broad portfolio of vehicles for our fans across all major brands, including VW, Audi, Land Rover and Jaguar. In addition, AMT has a specialist fleet of super cars such as Lamborghini, Porsche and Tesla available to buy or lease.

Paul Bell, Executive Director at Leeds United, explained: “After an exciting and positive return to the Premier League last season we are delighted that AMT has joined our rapidly expanding portfolio of Commercial Partners in the Premier League.

“We are proud to partner and build success with Leeds based brands; the visibility provided through our participation in the Premier League and the connected nature of our global fanbase a fantastic marketing platform to expand their business across the UK and Internationally. “   

As part of the agreement, AMT will have its branding displayed both internally and externally at Elland Road and will also receive a comprehensive package of marketing rights including LED perimeter advertising and will bring fans digital content with ‘AMT Spotlight’.

“We are very proud to be an official partner to Leeds United at such an exciting time for the club,” added Neil Mcgawley, Manager Director at AMT. “Our unique ‘Rent-Lease-Buy-Sell’ business model means we are in a position to add value to both the club and all its supporters. Like Leeds we have big ambitions and look forward to fulfilling these, aided by a long and mutually rewarding partnership.”

Elsewhere, the club is set to progress with proposals to expand the capacity of Elland Road after withdrawing plans for a new £25 million training facility and community sports hub near the stadium.

“Following the promotion of LUFC to the Premier League and the club securing investment from the San Francisco 49ers’, the club have reviewed their stadium development ambitions and want to preserve their ability to deliver an expanded 55,000-seater stadium at Elland Road, as opposed to a 50,000 seat capacity previously agreed,” a report from Leeds City Council’s Director of City Development to the council’s executive board confirmed.

The news follows on from the announcement that Premier League rivals Liverpool has secured planning permission for the £60 million redevelopment of Anfield Road.
