TRANMERE Rovers have confirmed that Essar will continue their partnership with the club for the forthcoming season, and will be displayed on the front of the new fan-designed first team shirts, which will be revealed for the first time at 5pm today.

Essar Oil UK is a leading UK-focused downstream energy company whose main asset is the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex.

Tranmere chairman, Mark Palios, said “I am delighted that Essar will again be our principal sponsor, because over recent years we have established a great partnership which goes far beyond simple advertising.  

"Essar have embraced many of the community projects we have launched, often with very little fanfare, at their request.  This included funding the provision of food parcels at the height of the Covid lockdown and supporting the Super White Christmas appeal, ensuring that local children from financially struggling backgrounds get to enjoy the kind of Christmas that many of us take for granted. 

"I would like to thank them for their magnificent support over a number of years, and particularly during the difficult Covid period, and I look forward to continuing to work with them for the coming season”.

Deepak Maheshwari , CEO of Essar Oil UK, said “We’re proud to be supporting Tranmere Rovers again this year.  

"Our partnership provides us with the opportunity to work closely with the club and to partner with them on their wide range of projects that really deliver for the local community. 

"We’re also grateful to the Club for the special opportunities they provide for our colleagues to take part in events at Prenton Park. We wish the team all the best for the 2022/23 season.”
