The club announced the new partnership on Tuesday at Orlando Stadium as they paraded their new branded vehicles, with both parties going out of their way to praise the others after penning the long-term deal.
Dr Casper Kruger, the Managing Director for Ford’s Sub-Saharan Africa region, said in a press release, “Orlando Pirates is a household name in South Africa with a massive following and a proud heritage, as well as an impressive record in the Premier Soccer League.
“We are delighted to become the vehicle of choice for Orlando Pirates for the next three years, and look forward to the exciting opportunities this sponsorship presents, for both the Club and Ford.”
Irvin Khoza, who said that he’s claimed the Ford Mustang for himself, said, “Two brands that have stood the test of time, like Ford and Orlando Pirates, innovation is not a choice, innovation is the norm. The association between these two brands is both fitting and opportune. It will help both brands Go Further.”
Ford will supply the Buccaneers with vehicles across their portfolio, including the iconic Mustang, Ranger, Everest, Transit and the EcoSport.
