Vauxhall will end a seven-year sponsorship deal with England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland when its current agreement expires after the 2018 World Cup.

The car manufacturer has been the leading partner of the Home Nations since 2011 but revealed in a statement issued to Press Association Sport that all four links will be severed next year.

England announced their 2014 World Cup squad at Vauxhall's headquarters in Luton, with the British car maker playing a major role in media activities and across social media platforms - especially at last summer's European Championships where England, Wales and Northern Ireland all competed.

Vauxhall said in its statement that it had "agreed to explore other opportunities to continue its relationship with the FAs beyond the conclusion of the existing contracts".
