The deal illustrates Cazoo’s aspirations to accelerate their European expansion as they aim to transform the car buying and selling experience across the UK & Europe by providing better selection, value, transparency, convenience and peace of mind.
Cazoo, which currently sponsors both Everton and Aston Villa in the Premier League, will see its branding on the front of the Real Sociedad shirt, throughout the Reale Arena, on all official club merchandise, across the club’s website and on all media backdrops featured on televised football coverage.

Just like us, they are a very ambitious club driven by results and have a passionate following and fan base across Spain and we are looking forward to engaging with the fans and local community and delivering the best car buying experience in Spain in 2022.”
