Veezu, a leading UK private hire technology platform, has announced an exciting partnership with two of Newport's major sports teams, Dragons RFC and Newport County AFC, as their official ride partner.

This collaboration marks a significant step for Veezu, aiming to deepen its roots in South Wales by aligning with institutions that hold a special place in the hearts of the local community.

Dragons RFC, one of Wales' four professional rugby union teams, and Newport County AFC, a professional League Two football club, both call the Rodney Parade Stadium their home. This strategic partnership will see Veezu enhancing the match-day experience for fans by providing safe, reliable, and convenient transportation to and from the stadium.

Launched in the region just last month, Veezu's initiative to partner with these sports entities reflects the company's commitment to engaging with and contributing to the communities it serves. By facilitating easier access to Rodney Parade, Veezu not only supports the fans in their passion but also promotes community spirit and participation in local sports events.

This move by Veezu is expected to forge stronger connections with local residents and sports enthusiasts, ensuring that the journey to and from one of Newport's key sports venues is as smooth as the game day action itself.

Jack Price, Regional Operations Director at Veezu, said: “We are delighted to partner with Dragons RFC and Newport County, helping shape a great matchday experience for fans. With local community at the heart of Veezu, it’s great to be able to continue to support local clubs year-on-year, and invest in our community.”


David Watts, Commercial Executive at Dragons RFC, said: “This new partnership will be of real benefit to visitors to Rodney Parade, whether on a match day or in the working week.


“A big area of focus for Dragons this season is our environmental impact, so it’s fantastic to join forces with Veezu who align closely with our values and have a real focus on sustainable growth.


“We’re excited to continue to grow and develop our partnership with Veezu in the coming years, and our supporters should look out for future updates on the partnership and further benefits for them.”


Louis Cartwright-Walls, Media Manager at Newport County, said: “Partnering with Veezu will bring great benefits to our dedicated fans at Newport County AFC by ensuring safe and reliable transport for all.


“Being a local team, community is very important to us so it’s a joy to see Veezu sharing those values and connecting with the community through their ongoing support. We are very much looking forward to what this partnership has in store, and how we can work together to give back to fans and create unforgettable experiences.”
