“In conjunction with our other sporting partnerships in the city, Leeds United, Yorkshire Cricket, it means AMT can connect to most of the people and businesses in Leeds, which syncs perfectly with AMT’s vision to be a vehicle solution for everyone, particularly those in Leeds and Yorkshire […] I’m really looking forward to the next 15 years”.

Oates described AMT Autos as a “family business, they’re a lovely, lovely group of people”, adding “today is the start of a fabulous partnership”.

It was also confirmed during the press conference that AMT Autos will be on the new Leeds Rhinos kit, which will be revealed next week.
