Yokohama ensured Chelsea FC made a safe away start to their 2016/17 Premier League campaign this weekend, delivering the team to Watford FC’s Vicarage Road ground with the team bus fitted with the company’s tyres.
The fitment of Yokohama’s tyres on the Chelsea team bus is yet another initiative in the partnership which saw Yokohama become the official shirt partner of the club last year. The company has also already fitted its high-performance, premium car tyres to a number of the squad’s own cars, ensuring they can perform to the highest levels on the road as well as the pitch.
“Equipping the Chelsea FC team bus with Yokohama tyres is an important step in our partnership with the club,” comments David Seward, managing director Yokohama HPT. “It’s imperative that the team have a safe and comfortable journey, so it’s pleasing to know that Yokohama tyres are playing a key role in helping to achieve this.”
