Same day delivery specialist CitySprint is looking to expand its presence in the north of England by becoming an official partner of rugby league club Leeds Rhinos. The two-year deal will see CitySprint act as an associate club sponsor for the team.
CitySprint has operated in Leeds for more than 12 years and recently worked with Leeds city council to carry out 4,000 emissions-free deliveries with five electric vans, completing a total of 35,200 emission-free miles. Last year the company also became a ‘Business Hero’ for Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm and sponsored the Royal Armouries’ Light Night.
As the newest partner of Leeds Rhinos, CitySprint will work toward making a positive impact on the community through its work with the club. This will include working with the club’s official charity, the Leeds Rhinos Foundation, which delivers projects in the heart of the community.
Rosie Bailey, commercial director at CitySprint, said, “It is an honor to partner with Leeds Rhinos. Not only are we impressed by what Leeds Rhinos achieve on the pitch, but we are incredibly inspired by the work they do to uplift the local community, and we’re excited to collaborate with them to help further their mission. By partnering with the club, we hope to make a real difference in the city and are thrilled to continue building great partnerships in Leeds and support businesses across Yorkshire.”
Rob Oates, commercial director at Leeds Rhinos, said, “We are very excited to have CitySprint on board as our newest partner. CitySprint is a business that has really chosen to invest in Leeds and support our local community. This partnership is the perfect step for us to align and find new ways to have a positive impact. I look forward to seeing how the partnership between us will evolve over the next two years and how we can bring our businesses together to show support for Leeds.”
