Vital EV becomes the Official Charging Partner of Coventry Rugby

13 January 2023

Vital EV has announced a two-season partnership with Coventry Rugby Club for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 seasons. As part of the ‘Official EV Charging Partner’ agreement, Vital EV is the new back-of-shirt sponsor and will provide temporary ‘Rapid Charging Hubs’ at selected home games while public interest is monitored for a new permanent EV charging hub in the Club’s car park. 

Founded in 1874, Coventry Rugby Club has been a pillar for the local community for generations and the team is currently challenging for a promotion spot in the tightly-contested RFU Championship, which will take them to their ultimate goal of playing in the Premiership Rugby.

As part of its ‘Vital Victories’ campaign which aims to support local sports and community projects, Vital EV is helping Coventry Rugby achieve its goal of competing at the top-level of English rugby. Sponsorship of the city’s rugby club also provides Vital with a recognised partner to work together with, to increase Coventry’s residents understanding of and access to charging infrastructure.

Alex Rae, Director & General Manager at Vital EV, explains: “As a proud Coventry Rugby fan, I am thrilled to be partnering with the club to help engage with rugby in the community. At Vital EV, we pride ourselves in delivering reliable and heavy-duty EV charging systems which makes Coventry Rugby Club an ideal partner, and we look forward to developing the relationship further”.

Toby Trinder, who plays prop and works in Commercial Sales at Coventry Rugby, remarks: “We are delighted to welcome the team at Vital-EV as our ‘Official Charging Partner’ here at Coventry Rugby. Both parties hold such strong values in engaging with the local community, along with working together to help achieve sustainable travel and charging solutions, it makes for a great partnership. We are really looking forward to maintaining and developing a strong relationship in the future.”

Vital EV will install its temporary Rapid Charging Hub at Coventry’s home ground, the Butts Park Arena, for selected home games. Comprising of Kempower Movable DC chargers, the hub will allow spectators to charge their electric cars at speeds of up to 40kW.
