SPFL cinch Biggest Ever Title Sponsor Deal
The Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) have announced cinch, the online used car marketplace, as its new title sponsor in a five-year deal that will run until the 2025/26 season.
The long-term agreement, which will span all four divisions, represents the largest title sponsorship deal in the SPFL’s history.
With immediate effect, Scotland’s professional football leagues will be known as the cinch Premiership, cinch Championship, cinch League 1 and cinch League 2.
cinch will also become the League’s Official Car Partner, with the company’s logo incorporated into the League’s composite logo which appears on every player’s sleeve.
This significant investment in the SPFL by cinch, builds on an impressive roster of high-profile sponsorship deals with some of the country’s best-loved sports brands, including the ECB, as Principal Partner of England Cricket; Tottenham Hotspur, the LTA for the cinch Championships; the Northampton Saints and The British Motor Show.
Speaking of the deal, SPFL chief executive, Neil Doncaster, said: “This is an enormously significant partnership for our member clubs, and for Scottish football as a whole. Our discussions with cinch have been extremely positive and the duration of the sponsorship agreement demonstrates their long-term commitment to Scottish football.
“Despite the economic situation and the challenging nature of the global sponsorship industry generally, this is the largest-ever sponsorship in the SPFL era. It’s a ringing endorsement of the enduring popularity of Scottish football, not only north of the border but right around the world.
“It’s an exciting time for the Scottish game and I look forward to building on this new partnership as we continue to showcase Scottish football and maximise its exposure to a global audience.”
