Scottish Women’s Football Chair Vivienne MacLaren believes that the new sponsorship deal for the Scottish Women’s Premier League is a historic moment for Scottish football. Park’s Motor Group will back the league for the rest of the season. Rangers are currently top of the table, leading defending champions Glasgow City by nine points. The latter is hoping to win the title for the 15th time.
“This is a historic moment for Scottish Women’s Football, the SWPL, and the entire game. Scottish Women’s Premier League Football chair, Vivienne MacLaren, said. “To have a brand such as Park’s Motor Group show their support to girls and women’s football in Scotland is a sign of the work that has been done and the progress we plan to make. The Covid pandemic was difficult for everyone and I’m sure many had concerns about the momentum of the game. However, today’s deal showcases that the Scottish game is more attractive to commercial sponsors and partners than ever before.”
“This is a positive development for the girls and women’s game,” she added. “Since my arrival as CEO, I know how important commercial income is to ensure we continue to grow the game and this deal is another step forward. This deal is a further sign that the game here in Scotland is deserving of recognition and investment. This will be the fifth continuous season that the SWPL has had a title sponsor. I want to thank all those involved in our game for helping make that possible and for continuing to help us grow and develop the sport we all love.”
