The Leicester company has decided to sponsor the Band as they prepare to give some musical support to England in Germany this summer.
Taylor says, "It's fun and that's the main thing I like about it. The World Cup is a massive corporate event but this brings things down to the grass roots with Pukka Pies supporting the England Band and them in turn supporting the England fans as they cheer on the team in Germany".
The England Band came to prominence during Euro 96 and the band's leader Steve Holmes says it's great to get such support.
"Graham Taylor has been really complimentary about what we're doing and as for Pukka Pies their sponsorship is a godsend, and we eat their pies as well!"
Pukka Pies Managing Director Tim Storer said they keen to add their support to England's effort in the World Cup.
"The Band called us and a week later we were able to lend our name to them, not just for this summer but for the whole year".
