Summit Vans are thrilled to announce their extended and improved partnership with local Rugby League giants Hull FC. This announcement marks Summit Vans becoming one of the club’s new main partners.
The Summit Vans brand is one that will already be familiar to Hull FC supporters having become the latest high-profile name to join the club’s family of commercial partners earlier this season.
The Summit branding has featured on the Hull FC’s 2023 jerseys, around the MKM Stadium on match days, and across the club’s digital output through their #FCRoadtrip campaign, which has seen hundreds of supporters get involved by sending in their best photos from their away days this season!
Hull FC Supporters will have also noticed the newly branded Summit Vans kit van at the MKM Stadium and on the road for away games this season.
Summit Vans have now gone a big step further having agreed a partnership to become an official Associate Partner of Hull FC. Summit Vans will be a prominent and key partner of the club for the remainder of this season and into 2024.
As well as continuing with branding on the club’s shirt sleeves, Summit will also feature on training ranges from next season, as well as the limited edition Hull FC Armed Forces range, set to be unveiled by the Black & Whites in the near future!
Summit Vans will also continue to grow their digital and match day output with Hull FC, offering supporters plenty of opportunities to get involved in competitions, giveaways, and fan park fun.
Better still, to celebrate the launch of this great partnership, Summit Vans are offering the chance for people to win two new Hull FC Armed Forces charity shirts and rugby balls signed by the players! This giveaway will be eligible for attendees that visit the Summit Vans stand at the Great Yorkshire Show, Harrogate, 11-14 July (Stand #747) and the Driffield Show, 19 July (Stand #P252). Hull FC’s mascot, the Airlie Bird will also be making an appearance at these shows on behalf of the commercial vehicle experts.
Summit Vans will soon be opening a brand-new showroom on Priory Park right here in Hull, offering the latest Ford and VW vans and pick-ups with luxury standards, bespoke detailing, and the popular 12 Month Flexi-Lease packages, designed to make leasing as simple and accessible as possible, as well as a high-quality stock of used vehicles.
Summit Vans Directors, Chris Walker and Ian Vodden, are delighted to have extended and expanded their partnership with Hull FC:
Chris said: “We are thrilled to announce our continued partnership with Hull FC. At Summit Vans, we strive to provide our customers with flexible finance packages, the best customer service and the most reliable vehicles, just as Hull FC strives for excellence on the rugby pitch – Both Summit Vans and Hull FC share a drive for success and victory. We are excited to play a bigger part in the Hull FC family and look forward to an incredible journey ahead.”
Ian said: “We’re really pleased about extending the partnership. It allows Summit Vans to further align its brand with the values and ethos of Hull FC – Grit, determination, teamwork, resilience, all in the pursuit of excellence. This is what we strive to provide our customers. Although we’re a national company, this partnership feels like the perfect way to demonstrate our commitment to the local community. The club means so much to the fans and it’s amazing to be a part of something like that.”
Meanwhile, Hull FC Chief Executive, James Clark, also added: “From the very first meeting with Chris and Ian at Summit, there was an obvious chemistry between both organisations and a desire and appetite to build a long-term partnership.
“Both Chris and Ian are passionate rugby people who have not only identified the strategic commercial benefits that a club like Hull FC can provide, but they also have a genuine understanding of what the sport means to our community and fan base and have fully bought into our vision for the club.
“We have enjoyed having them around the club and it is fantastic that we have been able to extend their partnership with this new high-profile opportunity.”
