Prominent local company step up their support for the club as new kits for 2014/15 are unveiled...AS WE unveil our new kits for the 2014/15 season, Walsall FC is delighted to announce a brand new shirt sponsorship deal as well as the continuation of our back-of-shirt sponsorship for the campaign ahead.
We have entered into a three-year deal with prominent local company, HomeServe, who will have their name emblazoned across the front of our new-look home and away shirts as well as sponsoring our training kit and Academy.
We have enjoyed commercial support from HomeServe in the past and we were delighted to welcome them back on board in February of this year when they took over the sponsorship of the Main Stand at Banks’s Stadium.
As Principle Partner and a well-respected local organisation, we look forward to developing our relationship and exploring the various opportunities that exist. We are extremely grateful for their support.
“We’re delighted to be entering into this partnership with Walsall FC through the combination of shirt, Main Stand and Academy sponsorship,” said Martin Bennett, Chief Executive Officer of HomeServe Membership. “As one of Walsall’s largest employers, this partnership represents the beginning of an exciting relationship, not only with the club, but also with the Academy and Walsall FC’s development of the stars of the future.
“We also see this partnership in terms of our commitment to our local community, which over the years has given us so much.
“We are confident it will be a winning partnership both on and off-the-field.”
Continuing their back-of-shirt sponsorship into a second season is Dains LLP.
They have been involved with the club for a number of years as Official Auditors and Accountants and, as one of the UK’s largest independent firm of accountants, have a number of offices in the West Midlands area.
Dains LLP provide a comprehensive accounting and auditing service to small and large companies as well as an accounting and taxation service for personal clients.
We are delighted to work closely with them and thank them most sincerely for the support that they give to the club.
“We are pleased that our association with The Saddlers is continuing,” said Richard McNeilly of Dains. “Walsall FC has a reputation as one of the best-run clubs in the country and we are proud that they carry our name on the back of their shirts.
“Last year was the first season in which we had sponsored the team kit and we were delighted with the added profile that it gave us.
“Working in partnership with Walsall FC is something we have always enjoyed and we look forward to doing so for many years to come.
“We wish the team and its supporters all the very best for the season ahead.”
The Saddlers will be stepping out in style for the 2014/15 season with our sleek, bespoke new-look home and away kits supplied for the third year in a row by our Official Technical Kit Supplier, Diadora.
We have enjoyed a successful association with this renowned brand whose attention-to-detail and quality of product is second-to-none. Both kits look smart and we are sure that they will be well-received by The Saddlers’ faithful.
“We are delighted to continue our relationship with Walsall FC into the 2014/15 campaign,” added Guy Walker, Head of Football at JD Sports. “It is essential that the kits we produce meet the high standards expected by players, coaches, management and supporters in terms of design and quality and we firmly believe that we have delivered that.”
Walsall FC Commercial Manager, Nina Best, continued: “The new kit designs look absolutely fantastic and to have such prominent local organisations as HomeServe and Dains also involved is a big boost for the club.
“The 2014/15 season is going to be an exciting one for the club both on and off-the-field and we will certainly look the part.
“May I take this opportunity to thank HomeServe, Dains and JD Sports for their tremendous support; we look forward to exploring the exciting commercial opportunities that exist with each organisation during the months ahead.”
