Football club, Forest Green Rovers, has entered into a new partnership with clean energy and electric vehicle YouTube channel, Fully Charged.
The team will be playing at home this season in front of fans at ‘The Fully Charged New Lawn’ – the new name for its stadium chosen by Fully Charged.
More than 100 groups put themselves forward to claim the naming rights – with the Club choosing Fully Charged – thanks to its work educating, encouraging and explaining the world of electric vehicles (EVs) and clean energy technology to a rapidly growing global audience.
Fully Charged was founded in 2010 by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge) and now has over 800k YouTube subscribers, with its content generating millions of views every year.
It has grown to encompass a live event series that runs on both sides of the Atlantic, with its latest event, Fully Charged Outside, taking place in Farnborough from 3rd-5th September.
Through its partnership, Forest Green Rovers will be promoting Fully Charged to its global audience of football fans, while the Club will appear throughout the season in Fully Charged content.
For the 2020/21 football season – Forest Green Rovers generated around five billion media impressions across broadcast, online and print media coverage worldwide – and with the club now playing at The Fully Charged New Lawn, a whole new audience will hear about the channel.
Dale Vince, Chairman, Forest Green Rovers, said: “We’re really looking forward to working with the Fully Charged team this season – like FGR they’re showing a global audience that there’s another way to live. Together we can spread the word about electric vehicles, clean energy and green football. The Fully Charged New Lawn has a great ring to it as well.”
Robert Llewellyn, Founder & Presenter, Fully Charged, said: “It’s a real privilege, for what began as a humble YouTube channel, to be associated with a pioneering organisation like Forest Green Rovers. We love spreading the word about clean energy and electric vehicles and this will really help us get to a larger audience around the world.
“The way that Forest Green Rovers is revolutionising sport is so important, in that it encourages people and businesses to be more sustainable.”
