Academy Leasing partnership puts players in the driving seat

Rugby League Cares is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Academy Leasing that will give professional Rugby League players, club staff, their friends and family access to their best deals on new and used cars.

Based near Warrington, Academy Leasing have been sourcing and funding vehicles throughout the UK for over 30 years and will make these amazing deals available as a partner in the Rugby League Cares Business Club.

Chris Rostron, the Head of Rugby League Cares, said: “We are looking forward to working closely with Academy Leasing to ensure players and the wider Rugby League community get access to the best possible deals from Academy when they are in the market for a new car.

“In our discussions over recent months, Academy Leasing have not only demonstrated a deep understanding of the needs of Rugby League players but a terrific readiness to provide market-leading levels of service.”

The partnership with Academy Leasing has been given the seal of approval by Rugby League Cares ambassador Adrian Morley, the sport’s most-capped player.

“I know from experience that players are often given poor advice when they’re looking for a new car and often end up paying far too much over too long a period,” said Adrian.

“It’s fantastic to see that RL Cares are working with Academy Leasing to ensure players get the right car at the right price.”

Academy Leasing Director, Michaela Dodd said: “I’m thrilled to be able to support Rugby League Cares: we have a history with Rugby League and have been involved in the sport at a grassroots level through local sponsorships.  This partnership allows us to extend our support to the game and its players.

“Academy Leasing has worked with many clubs and players over the years and have a good understanding of what they need and the issues they may face.  Our straight-talking team offer clear and simple options so that our customers can make informed choices.

“Importantly we only promote ‘real’ deals, which we can actually source, rather than deals that draw you in but don’t actually exist, which is why a lot of our customers come back to us time and time again.”
