Wakefield Wildcats Lose Main Sponsor

By Community | February 27, 2013

Following the collapse of their principal main sponsors, Wakefield Wildcats have revealed their need to fill the gap.

Eric France Metal Recycling, who trade under JKL (Wakefield) Ltd, have opted to enter into a creditors’ voluntary liquidation, news which will also hit Championship side Dewsbury.

The Super League team released a statement on Wednesday which read: “Following a creditors’ meeting with administrators KPMG yesterday, it appears highly unlikely that Eric France Metal Recycling will be able to fulfil their commitment of a significant six-figure sum, as the club’s main sponsor.

“While this is a hole to fill in the club’s budget, the areas of sponsorship available are the most prestigious – main shirt sponsor, East Stand sponsor and the back of the playing and replica shirts – making it an attractive proposition to a number of companies.

“The club is active in the market in its attempts to find a replacement sponsor.”
