The Worcester Wolves are delighted to announce that Gtech will be joining the pack as one of the lead sponsors for the forthcoming 2015/16 season.
The sponsorship deal was marked with a cheque presentation of £20,000 to Worcester Wolves Managing Director, Mick Donovan, by Gtech’s CEO, Nick Grey, at the University of Worcester Arena.
Last season the Wolves, the University's professional club, finished in 3rd place in the British Basketball League following the double winning season that saw National success in cup finals at the Wembley and the Emirates Arena in the memorable 2013/14 season. There has been a revolution in terms of team building over the past summer with a complete overhaul of the team that will see the arrivals of players from the United States, Slovakia and Spain join some very promising British players
Mick Donovan said: “In the past two years since moving to the University of Worcester Arena, we have experienced a very exciting transition with a huge increase in support at home games, together with some impressive performances on the court. We are excited about the new group of players that we have assembled and the support from a prestigious company like Gtech clearly shows that we are going places.
“The combination of such a progressive and dynamic company with a forward thinking professional Basketball club is a really exciting prospect for British Basketball and the support from Gtech will enable us to continue to make significant progress in key areas,” Mick said. “We are also really excited about the prospect of working with some of their vibrant commercial and marketing staff and all of our discussions so far with them have centred on genuine partnerships and moving forward together. We genuinely believe that this offers a great opportunity for the Wolves.”
Based in Spetchley, Gtech, has enjoyed rapid growth recently due to the popularity of its flagship cordless AirRam vacuum. Launched in April 2012, there are now half a million Worcester-designed Gtech AirRams cleaning British homes. This year has been particularly rewarding with Gtech winning The Sunday Times Profit Track ‘Ones to Recognise’ award, and a Queens Award for Enterprise in Innovation and the company is now on target to turnover £70m in 2015.
Gtech CEO and Founder, Nick Grey says: “My wife and I took our two oldest children to a Wolves games last season and we loved it. The Wolves were playing with 8 squad players against 11 on the other side and still winning. For anyone local who enjoys sport but hasn’t been to the Worcester Arena yet I would highly recommend it, the atmosphere is fantastic and my kids can’t wait for the new season to start. We are proud to support the Worcester Wolves and it’s great to see one of the smaller city BBL teams competing with the big city BBL franchises nationally.”
