Peugeot South Africa joins Pirates as Official Vehicle Partner
Hot on the heels of a successful defence of the MTN8 title, Orlando Pirates and Peugeot announced a comprehensive across the range partnership that will result in the display and usage by Orlando Pirates of Peugeot’s array of vehicles – from the Peugeot Boxer Panel Van, the Peugeot Boxer 19-Seater, the Peugeot Expert Tepee Leisure people carrier, the Peugeot 3008 crossover MPV to the Peugeot 308 Access.
“Orlando Pirates and Peugeot are two powerful brands renowned for being stylish yet resilient and reliable”, said Dr Irvin Khoza, the Orlando Pirates Football Club Chairman.
“In Peugeot we have a partner whose roots are in the origins of style and imagery”, Dr Khoza added.
“Peugeot South Africa is proud to be associated with the legendary Orlando Pirates. Both brands have a heritage of success, and attract a loyal supporter base”, said Francis Harnie, Peugeot South Africa’s Managing Director.
In addition, the Orlando Pirates 2011/12 Player of the Year will drive Peugeot’s highly desirable RCZ sports coupé – a fantastic incentive that is sure to inspire the Orlando Pirates stars to new heights.
“Peugeot is committed to the South African market, with an expanding range of latest-generation models offering local buyers the latest in automotive design, technology and safety. This sponsorship is just one of the ways the brand is reaching out to its SA customer base thanks to prominent exposure we will have at the club’s home ground,” Harnie concluded.
