Stagecoach East Midlands announces sponsorship of local football team Hykeham Tigers Under 15’s club

The transport operator will support the Tigers for the second year over the 2019/20 season.

The community grass roots club in Lincoln has been established since 2005, with a strong ethos focused on football for all. With 14 teams and over 180 children playing, 30 volunteers support the club that participates in weekly matches all over the county.

The Tigers also put on a football tournament every June, the biggest in Lincoln, with 120 teams taking part.

The new kit and training tops for the U15 season in orange and black will feature the Stagecoach East Midlands logo for both home and away matches.

Gary Burr, Commercial Manager at Hykeham Tigers FC, said: “It’s fantastic to have Stagecoach East Midlands sponsor our U15’s team for the coming season and to have the support from one of the UK’s largest bus operators. We are really excited for the upcoming season and look forward to welcoming Stagecoach to be part of Team Tigers for another year.”

Matt Cranwell, Managing Director, Stagecoach East Midlands, said: “We are proud to announce our support of the Hykeham Tigers U15’s club. As a company, we strive to support the communities we work in and recognize the importance of helping community teams who have a strong inclusive ethos, thrive.”
