Sports Sponsorship

The Draper Tools name has been synonymous with sports sponsorship, sponsoring Southampton Football Club for nine years between 1984 and 1993. This was a great period for the club with many famous footballing legends including Alan Shearer, Peter Shilton and Matthew Le Tissier wearing the Draper Tools name on their shirts.

Over recent years we've continued to advertise in a number of sporting arenas such as Barclays Premiership & Championship Football advertising, Motor Sport, Speedway, Drag Racing to name a few.
