Mercedes-Benz of Sheffield supports GB Women’s Volleyball

The Great Britain Women’s Volleyball Team are delighted to announce that we are being supported on our sporting journey by Mercedes-Benz. The Sheffield based company has donated three vehicles to help transport us to training and matches.


This Summer, we are based in Sheffield to prepare for the London 2012 Olympic Games and need to travel between our various training, support and accommodation venues across the city. The vehicles provided are not only saving the squad money but importantly allows us to maximize rest periods, ensure we can refuel within optimal times after training and gives us the flexibility for physiotherapy and sports psychology sessions.

Head Coach Audrey Cooper comments: “Having the Mercedes vehicles is a huge help to the squad and being supported by such a high performance, established brand is fantastic. Obviously, it saves the squad money for sure but more importantly from my perspective, it is another 1% help that allows the players to focus on performance, rather than spending time travelling.”

Thanks to JCT600’s Mercedes-Benz dealership, we are now travelling in style via two Viano people carriers
(8 seaters) and an E-class (5 seater). The vehicles will also be used for the matches against Olympic Qualifiers Algeria in Glasgow on the 22nd and 23rd June.

Clive Hammond, Brand Director of Mercedes-Benz Sheffield, commented:
“It’s fantastic to have one of the best teams in the world training here in Sheffield. The talent and commitment shown by this self-funded team is truly inspiring and we’re happy to be able to help them on their way to further sporting success.”

Based near Meadowhall, Mercedes-Benz of Sheffield offers an extensive collection of new and used Mercedes-Benz as well as providing a comprehensive range of services. JCT600, which has its head office in Bradford, is a family business with 42 dealerships throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and the North East. It sells 21 of the world’s most respected brands such as Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Volkswagen.
