Pukka Pies show loyalty to England Supporters Band

Pukka Pies have continued their support of English international football by extending their partnership with the official England Supporters Band in a two year extension.

The new titled sponsorship will see the Pukka Pies England Band performing at all European Championship fixtures leading up to the 2012 Euro finals in Poland and the Ukraine.

Pukka Pies first sponsored the England Band in the 2006 World Cup in Germany and this will take their total association to six years.

Tim Storer, Managing Director of Pukka Pies, said: "We feel it is important to continue to show our support of English football and the official England Band.

"Despite the disappointment of the recent World Cup, we know how much football means to this country and its supporters.  By supporting the Band, we want to demonstrate our passion, pride and support for England."

England Band leader John Hemmingham, who has played at over 150 games for England, said: "Pukka Pies have been fantastic supporters of the band over the past four years and we are delighted to have them on board again.

"Their support enables us to fulfill our role of performing at every England football international wherever it may be in the world."

Supporters of the Band were able to check out their adventures in South Africa with daily video updates via a special Pukka Pies World Cup website.

Fans can again follow the Band throughout the Euro 2012 qualifiers with Switzerland, Montenegro, Wales and Bulgaria.

Pukka Pies enjoy an extensive sports portfolio which saw them sponsor the 2009 Masters Snooker Tournament in Telford, Santa Pod raceway and the Leicester Ladies hockey team.
