SEAT kicks off 2011 fleet and leasing footy tournament
The Spanish outfit’s fleet sales operation, led by Manchester City fan Nick Andrews and his Manchester United-supporting national fleet sales manager Sally Livingstone-Dennis, is once again hosting a special version of the SEAT Fives tournament for the fleet and leasing industry.
Teams from across the corporate car world are being invited to register for SEAT Fives after which they will be pitched into five-a-side battle. The eventual winners will scoop a once-in-a-lifetime VIP trip to the UEFA Europa League Final in Dublin.
The top team’s all-expenses-paid trip to the Aviva Stadium will see them witness two of Europe’s biggest teams vie for ultimate UEFA Europa League glory on 18 May.
However, SEAT warns that the route to the final won’t be easy. The winners will have to dribble, kick and – most importantly – score their way through the qualifying regional rounds. After that comes the national final which is set to be held at SEAT-sponsored Fulham FC’s impressive Motspur Park training ground on 17 April.
Last year’s winners, Inchcape Fleet Solutions, scooped a night at the 2010 UEFA final between Atletico Madrid and Fulham in Hamburg.
Pete Lines of Inchcape Fleet Solutions said: ‘Taking part in SEAT Fives was a fantastic experience and all the lads really enjoyed themselves. Our games were hard but fair and the competition was intense but it was all worth it and we had an unbelievable night at the final. We’ll definitely be entering again this year!’
Nick Andrews, SEAT’s head of fleet and business sales, said: ‘SEAT Fives got off to a flying start last season and the competition among the country’s fleet and business car operators was particularly fierce. This year we’re hoping even more teams will sign-up as the trip we have in store for the winners will be one they’ll remember forever.’
Entry to SEAT Fives Fleet and Business Sales category is free, but SEAT says that spaces are limited and going fast. Teams must consist of seven people (five players and two subs), all of whom must be available for qualifying rounds and the final on 17 April.
