Castle Cover Continue as Main Sponsor of the Poole Pirates
Castle Cover signs a renewed six figure sponsorship deal with local Speedway racing team, the Poole Pirates.
PR9.NET March 29, 2010 - Poole, Dorset - Castle Cover, the Over 50s specialist insurer for Home and Motor insurance, have recently extended their sponsorship deal with the Poole 'Castle Cover' Pirates. They have signed a new lucrative undisclosed "six-figure package that will keep the Poole based insurance specialist as the main team sponsor until the end of 2011."
The continued sponsorship of the Poole Pirates speedway team shows the commitment from Castle Cover to support local sport teams. Poole Pirates have a distinguished history in the Elite league and look set to fight hard for more honours in the upcoming season.
Castle Cover managing director Andrew Marchington said: "There is an added financial incentive if the Pirates win or finish runners-up in the league. I can't divulge the actual amounts of money involved, but it is a substantial bonus for high achievement which we hope will spur the Pirates back to winning ways. Matt Ford has put together a fabulous team for 2010 which he believes will seriously challenge for top honours in the Elite league."
Poole Pirates have already secured five fixtures this season which will have live coverage on Sky Sports. The first of these fixtures is on Wednesday the 7th of April with Poole taking on Peterborough live on Sky Sports 1. The coverage from Sky helps to give superb national exposure to both Poole Pirates and Castle Cover.
Matt Ford, whose side are likely to be serious contenders this season, said: "The sponsorship comes into immediate effect and will see the team continue to ride under the name Poole Castle Cover Pirates for at least the next 2 years."
Ford continued, "We are very happy to continue our relationship with Castle Cover as they are such a dynamic company. This contract extension is crucial for the Pirates success as it gives us stability and helps us plan for the next few years."
