The League Managers Association (LMA) has announced the renewal of its commercial partnership with silversmith and bespoke luxury gift producer Thomas Lyte.
Thomas Lyte is responsible for some of the world's greatest silver and gold trophies, including the FA Cup, The Webb Ellis Rugby World Cup and The Ryder Cup. The silversmiths’ also produce the coveted BT Sport Industry Awards, which will be handed out at the annual event on Thursday.
Once again, the partnership will see Thomas Lyte provide its hand-crafted trophies for the LMA’s showpiece end-of-season event, the LMA Annual Awards Dinner 2015, sponsored by Barclays, as well as the trophies for the LG Performance of the Week Award throughout the 2015/16 league season.
Richard Bevan, LMA chief executive, said: “The LMA is excited to be extending its partnership with Thomas Lyte. Thomas Lyte is a globally recognised brand with an established reputation across the world of sport and especially football. The quality and bespoke contemporary design of the trophies for our Annual Awards Dinner last year was exceptional and something our winning members will treasure for years to come. We look forward to continuing to develop the partnership into next season.”
Kevin Baker, CEO Thomas Lyte added: “We are delighted to renew our partnership with the LMA and look forward to strengthening our relationships across the game. We share many of the same values as the LMA with our focus on leadership and quality. Thomas Lyte are proud to have ensured that many of Britain’s great football trophies such as The FA Cup and the Sky Bet Football League Trophies have been crafted by the most talented British craftsmen and their emerging apprentices.“
