Eastleigh FC has stepped up a gear after securing a new sponsorship deal with a Southampton motor business.

Breeze Van Centre has presented the club with its first dedicated Caddy kit van, as part of a two-year partnership.

Mark Jewell, chairman at Eastleigh FC, said:

‘We are delighted to strike the latest deal with Breeze Van Centre, who already sponsor the kit for our U15s girl’s squad.’

The van is primarily used to transport the first team’s kit to matches. In addition the branded vehicle will be used in the community supporting the clubs other 19 teams.

‘Previously we have been hiring vehicles to transport the team’s kit and equipment to matches and on occasion using individual’s cars but going forward this was not feasible.

‘The new van not only looks professional but is very spacious and we have found it economical to run, which is an important factor for a club of our size.

‘We appreciated Breeze’s expertise who ensured we had the right van and specification to meet our needs.’

Tim Treweeks, head of business at Breeze Van Centre Southampton, added:

‘This is an exciting extension of our partnership with Eastleigh FC and opens our name to a larger audience across the county.

‘Eastleigh FC is a great club with excellent ties in the community and it’s fantastic to work alongside them – long may it continue.’
