Bangkok Glass has become an official sponsor of Oxford United professional football team.

The Thai-based container and flat glass manufacturer has become the sponsor of Oxford United’s training ground.

Bangkok Glass boast a full range of glass packaging materials across all international markets and is recognised as Thailand’s largest provider of glass and packaging as well as being one of the largest businesses in Asia.

Oxford United Managing Director Niall McWilliams welcomed Bangkok Glass, and said: “It’s genuinely exciting for us to be working alongside a global business which has great connections with a number of sports and businesses in the UK and around the world.

“The Training Ground is not just the home of our First Team. The Academy is based there, the Women’s team train there and in the evenings and at weekends the facility is home to many community sports clubs.

“It’s something that is already providing a great facility for the city of Oxford, and I think Bangkok Glass understand the values we have: a growing football club with great links to local businesses, a club that is determined to continue to be at the heart of our community.

Pavin Bhirombhakdi, CEO Bangkok Glass Group of Companies said: “We will work together to expand and make it an even greater resource for everyone associated with the club, the city and the county.”

Oxford United is currently in sixth place in the English Football League One with eight wins so far this season.
