Sky to continue sponsorships of cycling

by CyclingTips

While two WorldTour teams look to be closing shop after this season, British broadcaster Sky announced it will continue to fund sponsorships in cycling, including the title sponsorship of the WorldTour team led by Chris Froome.

“The new brand campaign celebrates Sky’s role in transforming cycling across the UK and the impact this has had on British culture,” said Ian Murray, head of brand, cycling and Team Sky. “Our commitment to the sport will continue into 2017 and beyond with Team Sky and other partnerships.”

However, Sky’s support of the national team will end as planned after this year.

Sky launched the “Sky Loves Cycling” campaign along with the announcement of it’s sponsorship renewal.
