Jet Wheel Tyre and Massimo Tyre sponsor Southend United game. 

On February 18th, Massimo Tyres, along with their partner Jet Wheel Tyre, sponsored the Vanarama National League match between Southend United and Gateshead. 

Among the nearly 7,000 fans in attendance were staff and friends of Massimo, Jet Wheel Tyre, who were cheering on the home team, and Tyre Spot, another partner of Massimo tyres who have strong links to Gateshead FC. 

It was Southend United that won the entertaining game courtesy of an early goal by 17-year-old Henry Sandat. The youngster only starting for the shrimpers because of an injury in the warm-up to Harry Cardwell. The one-nil defeat leaving the 38 Gateshead fans who had made the trip with a miserable five-hour journey north.  

Jet Wheel Tyre celebrated the win with Massimo staff and consoled the Tyre Spot delegation. The hospitality team made sure that everybody was well looked after – there was even time to go pitch-side and meet some of the club’s stars. 

This was the first event of its type that Massimo Tyres has co-sponsored in the UK, but it definitely won’t be the last. A spokesperson for tyre brand said, “It has been a fantastic day and we can’t thank Southend United enough for their outstanding hospitality. It was a great opportunity for us to support our local partner, Jet Wheel Tyre, who have been fully behind our initial introduction to the UK tyre market. We will certainly look to work with Jet Wheel Tyre, and our other key partners in the UK, to provide more days like this where we can celebrate our relationship and increase brand awareness.” 

Martin Crane, director of Jet Wheel Tyre added, “Everyone had a great time, and we hope to team up with Massimo in the future to sponsor similar events. Massimo have been a great brand for us and our relationship with them has gone from strength to strength. It was a pleasure to sponsor a Southend United game and we are obviously delighted with the result.”
