– Yokohama-sponsored Chelsea FC has done it again, capturing the English Premier League (EPL) championship for the second time in three years. It’s the first title under Yokohama, which is the Official Shirt Sponsor of Chelsea FC.

Guided by first-year manager Antonio Conte and world-class players such as Diego Costa, Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and PFA Player of the Year N’Golo Kante, Chelsea earned the championship with a 1-0 victory over EPL rival West Brom.

“Congratulations to Chelsea FC on another hard-fought championship season,” said Fred Koplin, Yokohama Tire Corporation (YTC) senior director of marketing and motorsports. “Yokohama aligned with Chelsea because they are an exciting global brand and winners. We are very proud to support the Blues and be part of the Chelsea family.”

“We are delighted to secure our sixth league title,” said Chelsea FC Chairman Bruce Buck. “It has been a wonderful season for everybody here at Chelsea Football Club and we hope the campaign will get even better when we play in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium on May 27. We would like to thank Yokohama for their tremendous support this season. We look forward to more successes together in the coming years.”

Added Alan Holtschneider, YTC director of marketing: “We’ve woven Chelsea into many of our marketing programs here in the U.S., including our involvement with U.S. Youth Soccer and the Yokohama Skills Challenge, as well as the upcoming Needham Soccer Tournament. Chelsea winning the EPL title again is icing on the cake.”
