Premier KIA

Date published: Wednesday, March 10, 2010

OLDHAM Rugby League Club is delighted to announce a new sponsorship deal with Premier Kia Motors of Dukinfield and Rochdale.

As part of the sponsorship package, in which the Premier Kia logo is featured on the collars of the Roughyeds’ newly-designed 2010 jerseys, the club will be supplied with a customised, special-edition Kia car.

Said club chairman Chris Hamilton: “Premier Kia is a newcomer to the club’s commercial portfolio — one of several new backers — and we trust that the partnership will prove of mutual benefit.

“We appreciate the support that Premier Kia are providing and acknowledge the confidence they have shown in the club and its prospects for further advancement.”

Nigel Bird, a Premier Kia director who has family ties with Sheffield Eagles, said he hoped the link-up would help to drive the Roughyeds forward in their pursuit of promotion to the Championship.

“A deal of this nature is a two-way thing,” he added, “and the more successful the Roughyeds are the greater will be the projection for Premier Kia.

“Tony Benson (coach) has got them off to a good start and hopefully they can go on and hit top gear in achieving their season’s targets.”
