Tom Youngs has been described as the perfect ambassador by his player sponsor Fendt after the company renewed their support of the Leicester Tigers hooker for a fifth season.

Premium agricultural machinery supplier Fendt have sponsored England and British & Irish Lions hooker Youngs since the 2012/13 season and are backing him again for the upcoming campaign.
Martin Hamer, manager, national sales Fendt, UK& Ireland, said: “We promote our tractors as powerful, strong and reliable performers and this is exactly what we see in Tom and his position in the Tigers team.
“Never afraid of hard work and always prepared to knuckle down and perform, Tom’s work ethic and performance is exactly in line with the message we want to present to our customers.”
Mr Hamer added: “Tom and his family have two passions, rugby and farming, and he is genuinely interested in our products which makes him a great ambassador.
“I am really flattered that he takes the time to find out what we are doing and supports us in the way he does. To have such a great example in Tom and to be able to link our brand to him is a great opportunity.”
Player sponsorship offers an opportunity to boost your company profile for the new season at the biggest rugby cub in the country. It offers brand awareness online and offline through a mixture of events, brand placement and logo rights as well as player interaction and matchday experiences.
Player Sponsorship package in 2016/17 includes:
• Your company logo hyperlinked on the Leicester Tigers official website.
• Accreditation next to player profile in every matchday programme.
• Brand presence in our corporate suite every matchday at Welford Road.
• An official player sponsor logo for your business use.
• A meet-and-greet with your chosen player at a pre-season event.
• Invitation to our annual 'Huddle' networking event.
• Invitation for two guests to the Player Awards Dinner.
• Presentation of your player's signed playing shirt
Mr Hamer said: “To have the ability to bring our farming customers to Tigers to watch a game creates a relaxed atmosphere for us to build relationships with our customers, and if Tom is available to come and chat about the game or farming it is a very nice bonus.
“Our favourite moment with Tom was when he was interviewed by David Flatman for BT Sport and Tom arrived on one of our tractors for the interview. It was great!”
Player sponsorship is available from £4,000 + VAT with new signings Toomua, Pietersen, Pat Cilliers and George McGuigan now available, plus internationals Marcos Ayerza, Freddie Burns, Logovi'i Mulipola, Mathew Tait and Michele Rizzo, and club captain Ed Slater.
