Vodafone and Wasps launch new competition offering small businesses the chance to win in-stadium advertising space and more

Date: 29 Mar 2022

Today, Vodafone and Wasps have launched the Vodafone Business Champion Award, offering a small business the chance to win rewards including fully branded matchday advertising space, a full day’s access to The Vodafone Business Lounge at the Coventry Building Society Arena to host a business event and much more.

The first 100 businesses to enter will win tickets to the last Wasps Men’s Rugby home game of the season.

The Vodafone Business Champion Award recognises small businesses that can inspire others. Vodafone and Wasps want to celebrate and support UK businesses with valuable rewards that recognise the courage it takes to launch a business at such a challenging time.

To enter the Vodafone Business Champion Award, visit the V-Hub by Vodafone small business support website to start and submit your nomination.

Applicants must showcase how they have overcome challenges in the past year, been an inspiration to others and are encouraging the next generation of business owners.

Entries will be assessed by a panel of judges, including Wasps Group CEO, Stephan Vaughan, Vodafone Head of UK Small and Medium Business Andrew Stevens and Wasps stars including Brad Shields, Josh Bassett, Iona Christian and Flo Williams. Entry is free and open to all small UK businesses (less than 50 employees) until 19th April.

Josh Bassett and Brad Shields, partners in drinks brand ‘Social’ and Wasps Rugby teammates, said “As business owners ourselves, we can’t wait to see this campaign go live. This is a great opportunity that we wished was available when we started. Increased exposure can potentially open many doors for a business and when starting out, every opportunity matters.”

Andrew Stevens, Head of UK Small and Medium Business said “We’ve developed the Vodafone Business Champion Award in partnership with Wasps to continue to show our support for small businesses. This is to help businesses grow, using Vodafone’s online presence and the huge audience and reach of Wasps – it’s about giving really valuable, targeted exposure.”
