SPFL and Loch Lomond Group score a win with extended partnership

The Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) has signed a multi-year extension to its partnership with the Loch Lomond Group.

Initiated in 2020, the relationship not only ensures Glen’s Vodka’s continued status as an official partner and “The Spirit of the SPFL” but also integrates several other whisky brands under Loch Lomond’s umbrella into SPFL’s promotional activities.

As part of the deal, Glen’s Vodka secures exclusive presenting rights to all Manager of the Month and Manager of the Season awards throughout the partnership. In addition, Loch Lomond’s wider portfolio, featuring premium Scotch malt whisky brands such as Loch Lomond, Glen Scotia, and the premium Scottish Gin, Ben Lomond, will also be covered by the sponsorship.

Colin Matthews, CEO of Loch Lomond Group, said: “Since 2018, Loch Lomond Whiskies have enjoyed great success as a sponsor of The Open, the world’s greatest and most prestigious golf tournament.

“But football is the number one sport in Scotland and, with the fantastic start made by the men’s National Team to qualifying for the 2024 European Championships, this is a great time to support Scottish football and its clubs.

“The teams in the SPFL are a key part of Scotland’s cultural fabric and Glen’s vodka is an award-winning and iconic Scottish brand, so it was a no-brainer to continue to give our backing to Scotland’s best-loved national sport and all of the teams.”

Neil Doncaster, SPFL chief executive, said: “It is fantastic news to be able to announce this extension to our relationship with Glen’s Vodka and Loch Lomond Group. This partnership, with a growing and much-loved Scottish brand, will continue to see us working with our friends at Loch Lomond to provide new commercial opportunities, including special edition products, for a number of SPFL clubs.

“This contract extension comes on the back of record fee payments to the 42 SPFL clubs announced in the past year. Alongside our recently extended agreements with Sky Sports, BBC Scotland, and Infront, our partnership with Loch Lomond Group will play a major role in strengthening the financial future of the SPFL and our 42 Member Clubs.”
