Commonwealth Games 2014
Ford Motor Company has a large and longstanding presence in the UK and we’re proud to be an Official Partner of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Our roots in the UK run deep. We are the country’s biggest-selling car and commercial vehicle brand, employing over 14,300 people nationwide with a further 85,000 people employed through our Ford dealer networks and suppliers.
We are the second largest automotive research and development investor in the UK, creating exciting technologies like our award winning EcoBoost engines, Park Assist functionality, SYNC Applink streaming and telephony tool and our Quickclear windscreens. These technologies are applied across our portfolio of cars and vans including Fiesta, Focus, Transit and the newly-crowned International Van of the Year 2014, the Ford Transit Connect.
As part of our partnership we are proud to be providing over 1,100 vehicles to the Games, and to be appointed as the Official Partner of the Queen’s Baton Relay, giving us the opportunity to escort the baton and its team of carriers across the length and breadth of the country in the run up to the Opening Ceremony.
We look forward to welcoming all of the competitors and officials from across the Commonwealth, to enjoy the best ever games.
