Mercedes-Benz of Weston-super-Mare support local hockey club

Weston Hockey Club at Mercedes-Benz of Weston-super-Mare

Mercedes-Benz of Weston-super-Mare has proved to be really good sports by offering support to the town’s hockey club, which is now hoping its new sponsor ‘sticks’ with them for many seasons to come.

The Bridge Road retailer has agreed to sponsor the club’s youth development squad and, as part of the tie-up, its famous three-pointed star logo will appear on water bottles as well as kit worn by every team. These are the ‘hoodies’ that members of every Weston Hockey Club team at both senior and junior level wear to and from matches.

In addition, Mercedes-Benz of Weston-super-Mare will be funding trophies for the end-of-season presentation dinner. Sarah Langley-Wheeler, Weston Hockey Club’s sponsorship secretary, said that the backing of Mercedes-Benz of Weston-super-Mare and other companies was vital.

“In the past, the adult members have funded the youth development but in order to attract more senior players we have had to be more competitive with our membership fees and subs and therefore had to seek sponsors,” she explained. “Mercedes-Benz of Weston-super-Mare’s support is tremendous and we look forward to continuing our partnership with them for many years to come as well as attracting additional sponsors, which we need in order to survive as a club.”

With matches played as far afield as Plymouth, Portsmouth and South Wales as well as the local region, Mercedes-Benz of Weston-super-Mare’s name would be gaining plenty of exposure much to the delight of the retailer’s After Sales Manager, Steve Harvey.

“We’re pleased to be able to raise awareness about our business but also to be involved with our local community and sport at grass roots level,” he added. “As well as Weston Hockey Club, we have also been involved with a mixed martial arts tournament held in conjunction with the local SWEAT FA gym and are kit sponsors of Weston Town Football Club’s under 14s team.”
