City Buzz Bringing Business to Argyle
The increasing pull of Argyle has been quite evident in the club’s incredible attendances in the past couple of seasons, but it’s not just in the stands where the buzz around the city is contributing to our mission to become a sustainable Championship club.
Such is the groundswell of support for all things Green in Britain’s Ocean City, Argyle fans discussing the Pilgrims by the watercooler or in the staff room has led to a big increase in commercial sponsorships at Home Park.
One such example is at the workplace of HiQ Tyres & Autocare Plymouth, based in Faraday Mill Business Park, whose directors - Stewart Campbell and Mark Akerman – had little interest in Argyle before the constant chatter of customers and colleagues in the garage led to an eventual visit to Home Park.
Fast forward a few months, and now HiQ’s presence is strongly felt within the confines of the Theatre of Greens. Stewart and Mark are now avid, fully-fledged members of the Green Army, and HiQ Tyres & Autocare Plymouth are now members of the Argyle Nexus Business Club, as well as proudly sponsoring flying wing-back Bali Mumba and holding a strong presence around Home Park with multiple advertising boards.
Mark Akerman, Director at HiQ Tyres & Autocare Plymouth, said: “After our first visit to Home Park during the 21/22 season, we were instantly hooked and could clearly see the direction that the club is heading in and how that could be beneficial for us.
“We are delighted to have become a big part of the Argyle family and look forward to seeing even more members of the Green Army at our garage in Faraday Mill during the course of the season.”
HiQ Tyres & Autocare Plymouth offers a wide range of tyre and car care services, including MOT testing, full, interim and major servicing, electric vehicle servicing and maintenance, wheel alignment, brakes, batteries, clutches, timing belts, remapping and much more.
To underline their status as a member of the ever-growing Argyle community, HiQ Tyres & Autocare Plymouth is offering a 10% discount on labour by simply showing a valid season ticket or match ticket from this season at Home Park.
Tom Martin, Commercial Sales Manager at Argyle, said: “With the continued success of the men’s team on the pitch and the exciting investments around the club, it is no surprise that we are attracting a wider fanbase and further interest from local businesses.
“HiQ are one great example of a local business in the heart of the city who have recognised the influence and benefits possible from associating themselves with the Argyle brand. We are delighted to have them on board and look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
