Aston Villa have today (June 29, 2020) announced a new shirt sponsorship deal with Cazoo that will see the online car retailer replace W88 as the club’s primary sponsors for the upcoming 2020/21 season. Villa’s deal with Cazoo comes around three weeks after the firm announced a deal with Everton to replace SportPesa.
Cazoo’s deal with Everton is for a period of three seasons and is valued at somewhere around £10m per year, but no financial details have been revealed regarding this contract with Villa. The company’s CEO Alex Chesterman was also the founder of Zoopla, the firm that sponsored West Bromwich Albion back in the 2012/13 and 2013/14 seasons (that WBA deal was reportedly worth £1.5m per season)
Having a non-gambling shirt sponsor also means that the junior Villa tops will be allowed to sport the same logo as the senior shirt.
Aston Villa are currently 19th in the Premier League, but have the same number of points as 17th placed West Ham, who are out of the drop zone due to their superior goal difference. The Hammers also revealed their new home kit earlier today.
