18 March 2016

New shirt sponsors for United Women

Oxford United are pleased to announce a new partnership with the Oxford Bus Company which will see them become front of shirt sponsors for the Oxford United Women’s side for the coming season.

The Women’s team kick off their fixtures next week when they welcome Millwall Lionesses to Northcourt Road and they  will be wearing the new look kit which advertises the Oxford Bus Company’s airport service on the home shirts and the X90 route on the away.

Oxford Bus company offers a regular, direct coach service from Oxford to both Heathrow & Gatwick airports while the X90 is a fast, reliable and regular service to the centre of London from Oxford, offering power sockets and free wi-fi on each of their comfortable, air-conditioned coaches.

Oxford Bus Company will also be sponsoring the club’s Girls under 14 academy side and Managing Director Phil Southall said:

“We're really excited to be supporting Oxford United Women and are looking forward to a great season following the team in the WSL 2.

“Our core values of supporting the local community and embracing diversity are shared by Oxford United in the work they do, and so it was an easy decision for us to get involved with the club more closely. We'll have some great value travel deals available on our X3 and X13 services for those who want to join us in cheering the team on at Northcourt Road - and if the team need any help "parking the bus" during the season they know who to call!

“Football has consistently been one of the fastest growing sports for women and girls across Oxfordshire in recent years and so we're delighted to also be backing the club's Female Centre of Excellence as they develop the stars of the future.”

Oxford Bus Company are also offering a great offer for Wembley on April 3rd. Travel from Oxford before midday and not only do you pay just £12 but £1 of that will be donated to the Oxford United Community Trust. Take the X90 and then the Metropolitan line to Wembley Park from Hillingdon or Baker Street (fare not included).

Les Taylor, Manager of the Oxford United Women’s side said

“It’s fantastic to have the Oxford Bus Company supporting us this season. They are such a familiar name to everyone across the city and I am sure that the partnership will go from strength to strength.

“ We are looking forward to a very exciting season and can’t wait to get started next week. Hopefully as many people as possible come along to the first game against Millwall next Thursday and the link to the airport service helps us get off to a flying start.”
