Levett Consultancy to back Big Cats
Essex Leopards have announced the first title sponsorship deal in their 11-year history.
The Big Cats have linked up with Ongar-based ICT specialists Levett Consultancy on an initial one-year deal and will now be known as the Levett Essex Leopards.
Levett Consultancy specialise in ICT services and solutions, and over many years of providing excellent customer service to the Education and the Public sector have become one of the leading ICT Services Companies in the UK.
Leopards’ general manager Dave Ryan was understandably delighted with the deal and said: “It’s great to have Levett Consultancy on board. They’re enthusiastic and keen to help us expand both on the court and also with our community programme in schools.
“I’s tough running a club in the current economic climate and we hope that our sponsorship deal with Levett will enable the Leopards to remain as the top club in the NBL. We’re all really looking forward to what will be an exciting partnership,”
Paul Levett, managing director of Levett Consultancy, added: “Levett Consultancy is really proud to become principal sponsor for the Essex Leopards this season and beyond. I and my staff at the company have always followed the Leopards from their initial beginnings at the London Arena.
“As an education-focused technology business I see this as an excellent opportunity for Levett Consultancy to help improve young people’s lives through the great sport of basketball.
“I see this partnership not in the short term, but in the long term, where we will help the Essex Leopards rightfully return to the BBL in the not too distance future.”
As part of the agreement, the Levett Leopards’ change kit will be light blue for the 2015/16 season, and fans of the Big Cats will be able to see the new look when they host Team USA Select on Friday September 4 at the Brentwood Centre, tip-off 8pm.
