Europcar scores with Leicester City Football Club

New partnership extends availability of cars and vans in Leicester


Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, is giving Leicester-based businesses and residents even easier access to its services with the opening of a dedicated location at King Power Stadium, home of Leicester City FC.  Giving the local community convenient access to car and van hire, the new Europcar branch is located next door to the City Fanstore, with friendly staff on hand to provide assistance with everything to do with hiring a car or van.


“Leicester City is a truly local club with a strong fan-base living and working in the area”, said Ken McCall, Managing Director of Europcar UK Group.  “And, as a local employer – with our UK call-centre based in the City – Europcar has a great affinity with Leicester.  We, therefore, felt this was a perfect location to enhance our regional network, making car and van hire services more accessible than ever.”


The new branch expands Europcar’s nationwide network bringing convenient access to a range of vehicle hire services including one-way rentals. Customers can collect and drop off vehicles at the branch, from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays (excluding match days).


Reflecting Europcar’s strategy of working with football clubs around the UK, the new partnership with Leicester City FC also includes stadium and perimeter advertising at the Club.


Leicester City Commercial Director Ian Flanagan said: “We are extremely proud to be working with an industry leader like Europcar and excited by the opportunities the partnership and their in-stadium presence will create for both parties. Europcar have a fine record of positive activation in the football industry and we are looking forward to utilising that experience for our mutual benefit. I¹d like to extend to them a warm welcome to the Leicester City family of partners.”


“Leicester City’s King Power Stadium is in an ideal location for both businesses and individuals needing a flexible and cost-effective mobility solution”, added Ken McCall.  “As Europe’s leading car hire company our goal is to provide motorists with convenience, choice, simplicity and quality as standard and we believe this new branch enhances our ability to achieve that goal.”
