Manchester United Branded Tyre Launched By Apollo & Available Exclusively From Event Tyres
Apollo, Manchester United’s Official Tyre Partner, has launched a new branded tyre that is sure to be a big hit with fans of the Old Trafford club.
To keep the deal very much a Manchester affair, locally based mobile tyre fitment specialist, Event Tyres, has secured the exclusive UK supply deal for the all-new Apollo Manchester United branded tyre.
Set up by former Kwik-Fit Mobile directors (Mark Shankland and Garry Moloney), Event Tyres boasts a national customer database of more than 85,000, and specialises in fitting tyres at home or work addresses across the UK, freeing up valuable time for its consumer and business customers.
Sales and Marketing director for Event Tyres, Jianni Geras (previously with Michelin), said: “With tyres, as it is with football, we know that every corner counts. We hope that this new product, with its excellent performance, longevity and affordability, will help fans join Louis van Gaal’s team on their road to success this season. Initial stocks are in limited supply, so I would encourage fans to register their interest through our website as soon as they can.”
The new tyre is available immediately and exclusively from Event Tyres, via the company’s Old Trafford (17-19 Talbot Road) tyre centre, call centre (0800 810 0972) or website www.event-tyres.co.uk, and is priced from £59.95 per tyre. Manchester United tyres are available in limited sizes at launch, with the range being expanded over the coming months.
A key element of the partnership between Apollo and Manchester United will be a joint community commitment to encourage healthy lifestyles and develop sporting skills in young people. Apollo will build ‘Go The Distance” football pitches made from recycled tyres in communities across the UK and India, with the first being at Old Trafford.
Manchester United group managing director, Richard Arnold, commented: “Apollo is a leading player in the tyre industry, and its rate of growth and development in new territories make it an attractive partner for the Club. The partnership also allows the Club to continue its on-going commitment to investment in and development of young people.”
