Laufenn at York Tyre Sales become Shirt Partner!

York City Knights are delighted to announce that Laufenn at York Tyre Sales will be continuing and enhancing their partnership with the club going into the 2022 campaign when they will appear on our playing shirts.

Manufactured by leading global tyre manufacturer Hankook, Laufenn tyres have integrated advanced technology and safety features, optimising performance in wet and dry conditions. The range covers a majority of the UK car, 4×4 and van tyre sizes with summer, all-season and winter patterns which can be bought locally from our Regional Main Dealer, York Tyre Sales.

York Tyre Sales is an independent family business run by Chris & Jack Bradley, father & son. Based in Murton on the outskirts of York they specialise in tyres and wheel alignment for cars, vans & 4X4 vehicles. A range of associated products & services is also available such as puncture repairs, wheel balancing, brakes & servicing.

“As a lifelong Rugby League fan and York City Knights supporter I’m over the moon to be associated with the club,” says Chris. “Everyone knows how well organised the Knights are both on and off the field and this professionalism played no small part in getting a brand as big and prestigious as Laufenn on board.

“With the recent signings & retention of James Ford we’ve got a great future to look forward to and we can’t wait for the first match.”

Laufenn was the Official Matchday Partner and Matchday Ball Sponsor at many of the games throughout the 2021 season and this support has continued into 2022 with the company becoming a Key Partner and Shirt Sponsor.

Zoe Baldwin, Marketing Manager at Hankook Tyre UK said “We are extremely excited to be a shirt sponsor of York City Knights with our Laufenn tyre brand for the 2022 season. We are passionate about sports and have a long history of supporting clubs across the UK and are looking forward to a successful season with the team.”

Knights Chairman Jon Flatman said: “Laufenn at York Tyre Sales came on board as a partner partway through the 2021 campaign and, over that time, we have got to know Chris and Jack and their passion for the sport is clear.

“Laufenn and Hankook tyres are associated with a number of high-profile sporting teams and competitions, including Real Madrid and the UEFA Europa League, and for them to want to associate their widely-known company alongside the Knights brand is brilliant and we’re all looking forward to continuing our growing partnership over 2022.”

The 2022 York City Knights shirts will be unveiled this week ahead of Thursday’s Fans’ Forum when you will be able to get your hands on yours. Full details on the event at the LNER Community Stadium can be found on our website here.
