Derby County FC mascot, Rammie, will take to the road in a brand new personalised vehicle, following a two year sponsorship deal with Imperial Commercials Van Centre.

The Derby-based Volkswagen dealer has supplied Rammie with a Caddy van to support his growing number of public appearances in the area.

It is the first time that Rammie has received such a sponsorship and the brightly coloured Caddy even gets an exclusive place next to the club directors in the West Stand car park.

Rammie is regularly asked to attend school activities, charity events and local attractions in addition to birthdays and weddings. The new vehicle will enable the Derby County star to safely transport his inflatable goal and equipment to future events.

Derby County CEO and President, Tom Glick, said: “We are very grateful to Imperial Commercials for their commitment and support. Previously Rammie had to struggle to get all of his gear to the events but now he can safely travel in style.

“The spacious Volkswagen Caddy will accommodate all Rammie’s equipment and the striking livery and alloy wheels will certainly make it easy for fans to spot him on the roads.”

Matt Lawrenson, regional director of Imperial Commercials, said: “We feel it’s important to support our local clubs and businesses and as big Derby County fans there is no better way to show our support?”
