We are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Southampton FC for the 2017/18 season.
Southampton will provide us with a platform to increase brand awareness, having a significant presence at St Mary’s as well as many offers and prizes for Saints fans throughout the season. Furthermore, we will be known as the Official Energy & Utilities Partner for the South Coast side.
In the past two years alone, we have more than doubled our customer base – which now stands at 550,000 – and has trebled its staff numbers since April 2016 to 1,500, with nearly half based at their headquarters in Eastleigh.
Last month, we reached a million supply points across the UK and were also the winner of the Best Growth Award at the South Coast Business Awards.
The two-year agreement will see Saints and Utilita work closely together to benefit the club’s fans and the company’s customers and staff, as well as the wider community.
Jem Maidment, our Head of Marketing & Communications, said: “We are now a rising national brand – but our roots are very much in Hampshire.
“We believe in the power of football and the positive effect it has on communities. Over the past two years we have considerably grown our involvement in the national game with great success, showcasing our brand and our fantastic products to football fans across Britain.
“So it is a huge thrill for us to now partner with Southampton, especially at such an exciting time for the club with a new manager, as they build on their successes of recent seasons. We look forward to working on a number of initiatives with the club across Hampshire, with more announcements to come later in the season.”
Southampton Football Club’s Commercial Director, David Thomas, said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Utilita on board as an Official Partner and we look forward to working closely with them on some exciting projects in the coming seasons.
“Like us, they are a fine example of a Hampshire success story and are a community-focused organisation. We believe the values they share with us will make this a partnership that can benefit the club, our fans, Utilita and also the wider area.”
Saints fans who switch to UTILITA will receive exclusive offers throughout the 2017/18 season - as well as a smart meter at no extra cost, no standing charge and exclusive access to festival and music tickets through its partnership with the world’s leading entertainment promoter, Live Nation.
