Thanks to our status as one of the leading lights in French football, the Girondins de Bordeaux have established strong relationships with some prestigious commercial partners.
Since the 2006-2007 season, Kia Motors France, the French branch of Korean car manufacturers Kia Motors Corporation, has been the Girondins' principal shirt sponsor for all matches in the Orange Ligue 1 championship and the UEFA Champions' League. This major sponsorship deal, with a prestigious club which occupies a unique position in the history of French football, reflects the great ambition of Kia for the French and European markets.
Kia Motors' relationship with FC Girondins de Bordeaux represents a deep, long-term commitment: indeed Kia Motors has been the club's official automobile partner since 2005, placing a fleet of vehicles from the Kia range at the club's disposal. This fleet, composed mainly of the new urban crossover Kia Soul, the cee'd compact saloon and the Kia Carens compact people carrier, meets all of the Club's professional transport needs.
