Championships Director, Joan Durose, said: “It is tremendous news to have secured a local supplier for the mobile phones which will be used by key personnel at the Championships. Clearly communication at any major event can be a crucial factor in its success, so we are very pleased that Voice Mobile has come on board.”

Established in 2000 and based locally at Fort Dunlop, Voice Mobile supplies both consumer and business accounts including Birmingham City Football Club and Birmingham Chamber of Commerce. It has a long-established relationship with UK Police Federations, which has resulted in supplying more than 100,000 mobile phones to police officers. Recognised as one of EE’s largest business partners, Voice Mobile provides a comprehensive solution for both business and consumer customers.

Mark Barber, Group Sales Manager, said “We are extremely proud to supply mobile phones for such a prestigious and important event. It’s an exciting time for Birmingham and sport within our great city. Being born and bred in Birmingham, it’s a core focus of our business to support local activities as much as we can.”
