Glasgow Tigers Speedway team motors ahead with help of sponsorship

Glasgow Tigers Speedway Team hopes to go all the way and win the SGB Championship next season after renewing its sponsorship deal with a local motor retailer.

Lookers Volkswagen Van Centre in Baillieston will sponsor the Tigers again next season as the team looks to overcome the disappointment of a marginal defeat against Leicester Lions in last season’s play-off finals.

The sponsorship will be used to support the team next next season as well as help in its efforts to regenerate its local area.

Last season’s playoff finals proved to be an extremely tight affair, with Leicester Lions winning the first tie 51-39, only for the Glasgow Tigers to claw themselves back in the second leg, only to suffer a heart-breaking 89-91 defeat.

Founded in 1946, Glasgow Tigers have occupied eight venues, including its current home at Ashfield Stadium, and have three League Championships to its name, as well as 15 Scottish Cups and three Premier League Pairs Championships.

The team was rescued from mounting debts in 2012 after its owners sold it to a company set up by fans.

Robert Mackenzie, Marketing Manager for Glasgow Tigers, said: “Lookers have sponsored us for some time now and I’m delighted that they will be continuing their support into 2020. As well as competing in the SGB Championship, we also do a lot of work in the community, much of which is only possible with the support of our sponsors.”

The sponsorship of Glasgow Tigers is part of Lookers’ ongoing support of local community sports. Last year saw Lookers Volkswagen sponsor promising young motorcyclist Corey-Jay Christopher Hull, enabling him to compete in the British Youth National Championships.

John McKinstry, General Manager at Lookers Volkswagen Van Centre, Baillieston, said: “We are very proud to be once again sponsoring Glasgow Tigers, who provide so much excitement and drama for speedway fans here in Glasgow.

“Everyone was disappointed when the team were unable to take home the Championship trophy last season but I’m sure they’ll be able to go one better next season, with so many skilled riders on their roster. Everyone at Lookers Vauxhall Baillieston is right behind them and wishes them the very best of luck for next season.”
