As an international fleet management and leasing company, sgfleet are always developing innovative products that their customers are able to use for the benefit of their businesses. SoccerLease - which will be exhibiting at next week's ALSD International event in London - is their latest product to hit the market. We spoke with Chris Salmon, Commercial Director, to find out more...
What is SoccerLease?
SoccerLease was born out of an initial offering to football clubs that has now grown and evolved to offer all sporting clubs the chance to enhance their membership benefit packages and reward fan loyalty.
Who is SoccerLease for?
SoccerLease is suitable for sporting clubs of all shapes and sizes. No matter whether you’re a rugby club, a tennis association or a cricket club, it’s suitable for everyone.
How does it work?
Sporting club members are able to take out a vehicle lease for either personal or business use. These vehicles come with a substantial discount when compared to retail prices, meaning fans are able to get their hands on a new vehicle, saving them time that would have been spent researching the market, and money on the overall monthly lease cost.
Reduced long-term expenditure
Aside from the government incentives that are already available, operating a green fleet can reduce an organisation’s monthly expenditure even further. Fleet managers and fleet owners who invest in a green fleet could see a huge reduction in monthly operating costs over the long term.
This is due to the fact that vehicle tax, fuel costs and even insurance bills vastly decrease in price when applied to green vehicles. Not only does this help fleet managers work to restricted budgets, it also means they are able to reinvest these savings into their business.
Why was Soccerlease created?
With the continued success of employee benefit solutions, sgfleet recognised that all sporting clubs should be able to offer their fans a vehicle leasing solution as their way of giving thanks for their continued support.
At the same time, sgfleet are working hard behind to scenes to roll the format of SoccerLease out to a variety of different industries, all part of its continued focus on innovation and cooperation between organisations in different sectors.

In conclusion, this innovative product is the ideal way for sports clubs to enhance their membership benefit packages, entice new fans and retain existing ones. The range of vehicle available gives fans a variety of choices, making SoccerLease the ideal addition to sports club offerings. Fleet managers that are serious about improving their environmental responsibilities and reducing monthly expenditure should consider introducing a green fleet policy. There will undoubtedly be considerable advances in both technology and grants over the next few years, so it’s an area that’s always worth considering.
