Scania Jump Aboard the Pirate Ship.

The Smailes Goldie Hull Pirates are delighted to announce Scania have come on board as a new club sponsor.

After enjoying an evening as our match night sponsor for the visit of the Telford Tigers in early November, the team at Scania have jumped aboard the Pirates’ ship to further our relationship!

Craig Dunbar, General Manager of Scania Hull, explained, “At Scania we are extremely focused on sustainability and aim to follow the three pillars of sustainability which are: economy, environment and society.”

“To build on society we wanted to integrate with Hull’s local community and were considering sponsorship of a local sports team.”

Craig further explained the decision, “We initially came to a game on a staff night out as match night sponsors. This night went extremely well and we loved the brand, exposure and organisation of the club. The entire experience left us feeling very welcome and a part of a large family.”

On the sponsorship news, Andre Payette, Pirates’ commercial manager exclaimed, “I’m extremely happy to welcome Scania to the Hull Pirates family, this really shows how we are continually growing as a team.”

“To have such a huge sponsor aboard the Pirates’ ship is such a massive achievement for the team. I would personally like to give a massive thank you to Craig Dunbar and the Scania family as I am extremely proud of this new partnership.”
