New Sponsor for EFL Trophy
Monday, 5th Aug 2019 16:37
The EFL Trophy will be known as the Leasing.com Trophy for the next two seasons under a new sponsorship deal.
Leasing.com, who specialise in comparing car leasing offers, replace Checkatrade as the tournament’s sponsor.
Town will take on Tottenham’s U21s in their first ever game in the competition, which was won by former Blue Brett Pitman's Portsmouth last season, at Portman Road on Tuesday 3rd September (KO 7.45pm).
The Blues also face Gillingham, who will be in Suffolk on Tuesday 8th October (KO 7.45pm), and Colchester at the JobServe Community Stadium on Tuesday 12th November (KO 7.30pm).
EFL chief commercial officer, Ben Wright, said: “The EFL is delighted to welcome Leasing.com to our portfolio of partners at the League ahead of the start of what we all hope is another successful and memorable EFL Trophy campaign.
“With the revised format now firmly established, this competition continues to go from strength to strength and the EFL is looking forward to working with the Leasing.com team as we plot this season’s journey to Wembley and move on to the next chapter of the EFL Trophy’s history."
David Timmis, founder and MD of Leasing.com, added: “We’re delighted and immensely proud to have secured sponsorship of the EFL Trophy as part of our ongoing brand development campaign for Leasing.com.
“We want Leasing.com to become a household name and what better way to achieve that than to sponsor one of the most high-profile tournaments in English football.
“Car leasing used to be viewed as something that was only available to businesses, but we want everyone to know that leasing a new car is a simple, affordable option that all drivers should consider.
“Over the last 20 years we’ve already helped more than a million people find their perfect car leasing deal: this sponsorship offers an ideal opportunity for us to help millions more ‘Say goodbye to buying’.
“The EFL Trophy continues to grow every year and has huge potential, so it’s a perfect partnership and we can’t wait to get the ball rolling.”

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
