Toronto Wolfpack are pleased to announce a new partnership with Volkswagen Downtown Toronto. The agreement will see players and staff given the use of the new Volkswagen Atlas SUV for the rest of the season.
Mobility is important to the Wolfpack squad as they settle into Toronto having spent the majority of the last few months in the UK. This agreement allows them to explore the area easily and become acquainted with the city they represent. Reni Maitua, Wolfpack Rugby Operations Manager, said:
“Volkswagen Downtown Toronto have gotten behind the first transatlantic sports team, which is on the verge of history. They’ve got on board early and built a great partnership.
“It will give the players a lot more freedom to do things around the City and to be part of the City, so we couldn’t be happier teaming up with Volkswagen Downtown Toronto. Hopefully we will be building our long-term future with them.”
Situated at 550 Adelaide St East, Volkswagen Downtown Toronto is located conveniently near the team’s base at George Brown College. Binny Onqa, General Manager of Volkswagen Downtown Toronto, commented:
“We’re thrilled about our new partnership with Toronto Wolfpack – it’s a great relationship that aligns equally well with Wolfpack fans and our customers.
“When in Toronto, the team needs the efficiency of personal mobility to be provided by a vehicle that drives very well and is also large enough to accommodate the players.
“With our new Volkswagen Atlas SUV it’s a perfect match, and we’re proud to support the Toronto Wolfpack and all their work as they continue to energize our city with the great sport of Rugby.”
The vehicles provided by Volkswagen Downtown Toronto will be branded to promote the team and Wolfpack players are scheduled to make a number of appearances at the dealership throughout the rest of the season. Scott Lidbury,Wolfpack’s General Manager – Commercial, added:
“We’re delighted to have agreed this partnership with Volkswagen Downtown Toronto. We’re very grateful to them for providing vehicles to our team, giving them a reliable means of transport in and around the City.
“We encourage fans to keep an eye out for the players and staff as they make their way around Toronto in the new Volkswagen Atlas SUV.”
