Check out the bit about Watford's potential sponsors. Surely there's never been a more unfortunately named company? :D

The pronunciations will be somewhat different (R-Selleck and Kose I believe are more accurate) and their main UK brands are Thomson and Beko.

Always made me chuckle that Liverpool seemingly were sponsored by Crown Pants for years.

Said to be a 'food maker' on the 'net (including pork luncheon meat) so hampers is a possibility - unfortunate name since in the medical dictionary it is a genus of bacteria that causes diarrhoea. It is also a hotel in the Faroe Islands (not on my list of places to stay).
