Mervyn Stewart Skoda has announced a three-year deal to become an Official Partner of the Northern Ireland Football League (NIFL).

The partnership sees Mervyn Stewart Skoda named as the ‘Official Car Partner’.

The Belfast based dealership has just undergone a major renovation, investing £300,000 in the restructure of a state of the art showroom – the largest in the UK, opposite Windsor Park on Boucher Crescent.

The NIFL has recently announced an impressive 14.5 per cent increase in match attendances this season with almost 200,000 fans through the turnstiles since August.

Stephen Stewart, Managing Director of Mervyn Stewart Skoda comments: “We are really looking forward to working with the NIFL, our hope is to help drive domestic football in Northern Ireland.

“It’s great for local football and being a football mad business, it is an honour for us to support club football in Northern Ireland. As part of the sponsorship we’ll be able to showcase the Skoda fleet at clubs and grounds throughout the league, so the fans can check out our award-winning cars.”

NIFL Managing Director Andrew Johnston is excited by the new partnership.

“We are delighted to team up with Mervyn Stewart Skoda as our ‘Official Car Partner’ providing a fantastic platform to display their vehicles to football fans across Northern Ireland.”

Mervyn Stewart has been in business for over 50 years investing in the Skoda brand – following the car manufacturers’ commitment to double their global sales by 2018.

“The group investment amounts to a massive €14 billion, and includes a new two year phase of product development which aims to release a new model every 6 months.”
