Nick Boocock, Operations Director, at Fleetmaster, commented: “We are always looking for new opportunitities and one of our clients introduced us to the Wildcats. We sponsored the Wildcats for the 2010/11 season and found them to be a genuine club run by genuine people that brings genuine benefits.
“Last season was a little up and down but the news that they keep their Super League status I feel has sparked a revival and with the signings being made the club is going in a new direction.
“Due to the great service we have received from Martin and the Wildcats Team and the hospitality they have shown not just to us but to all our clients and friends, we have decided to increase our sponsorship for the up and coming season. We can only wish the Wildcats all the best for the new season from all at FleetMaster OSS Ltd.”
Wildcats Commercial Manager, Martin Hopkins, was delighted to welcome Fleetmaster OSS on board as shirt sponsors.
“It’s fantastic news that Fleetmaster have taken up the opportunity to be shirt sponsors in 2012 and we look forward to continuing to build on a successful commercial partnership with them,” said Martin.
“They are another local company that have seen the benefits in being in partnership with the Wildcats and we similarly look forward to working with such a professionally run and well respected organisation.
“As a club we are an increasingly viable commercial proposition for companies to become involved with and this is something that only bodes well for our future.”
“What’s great about this deal is it was agreed before the franchise announcement and they had agreed to back Wakefield regardless of the outcome.”
