UTILITA – Britain’s fastest growing independent energy supplier – is delighted to announce it will once again be the Official Energy Partner of Rangers Football Club for the 2017/18 season.
Utilita has also extended their presence at the club as The Light Blues’ premier back-of-shirt sponsor. The Utilita logo will appear on the back of the first team home and away kits – the first partner to do this in the club’s history.
After a successful 2016/17 partnership, Utilita is delighted to be working with the Glasgow side again this season and continuing its positive presence in the city.
Earlier this year, Utilita was delighted to announce the opening of new offices in the centre of Glasgow as part of an ambitious growth plan which saw 200 new jobs created. The supplier also celebrated its 500,000th customer in April – up from 200,000 as recently as July 2015 – and this month reached a million supply points across the UK. It has also seen turnover jump more than 50 per cent to £411m while staff numbers have more than trebled in a year – from around 400 to nearly 1,500.
Jem Maidment, Head of Marketing & Communications at Utilita, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Rangers for a second season, a partnership that will see Utilita further engage with fans, with ticket giveaways, half-time challenge fun and match-day activities for all the family including the Utilita Street Football Zone.
“We’re also very excited to be the first ever Rangers back-of-shirt sponsor – as massive fans of Scottish football, we’re looking forward to an exciting season ahead with a renewed presence at the club.”
Scott Steedman, Head of Commercial at Rangers FC, added: “We are pleased to confirm Utilita will be continuing as the club’s official energy partner, and delighted to have such a well-established brand in Scottish football come on board as the club’s first back-of-shirt sponsor.
“Utilita has been a fantastic partner to work with, and we look forward to further strengthening our relationship with the company this season and beyond.”
Gers fans who switch to Utilita will receive an exclusive, limited edition Rangers in-home display cover. Customers will also receive a free smart meter, excellent customer service and a host of other benefits including exclusive access to festival and music tickets through its partnership with the world’s leading entertainment promoter, Live Nation.
The Utilita branded shirts will make their first display when Rangers play Motherwell away on Sunday 6 August 2017.
