Cardiff Blues are going green this season after launching a new European shirt with an environmental pledge - and now sponsors Wessex Garages are making sure the region is on the right road to deliver on our green promise!
Cardiff Blues have vowed to do all they can to help the environment during the 2014/15 season at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park and have launched six commitments to do just that.
And now thanks to official sponsors Wessex Garages, the Blues will also be doing their bit every time they hit the roads around the region - and supporters can also reap the environmental rewards!
Wessex Garages, based on Hadfield Road in Cardiff, have given Cardiff Blues a specially branded Nissan LEAF electric pool car for the season that will be shared with sponsors DS Smith, who have also backed the region's environmental aim.
Fans can who drive full electric cars can also park for FREE at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park with new green bays introduced at the home of the Blues!
Matt Church, Sponsorship Manager at Cardiff Blues, said: "We've made an environmental pledge at Blues this season and so we're delighted that Wessex Garages, our long-term supporters and sponsors, have backed the green campaign.
"We're committed to making sure that sport plays its part in creating sustainable living. We will now be driving the branded Nissan LEAF around the region for the season and will also be introducing the green bays at our home to reward fans who drive full electric cars."
