Sporting 87 FC are delighted to announce a major new sponsorship deal with Getaway Cars / First Stop Travel. The deal will see the Getaway Cars logo on all youth and adult teams playing shirts. Last season Getaway cars sponsored the home and away playing shirts of the adulte First Team who play in the SIL Touchline Division 1, along with the Club’s U18 Thurlow Nunn team. Following the success of that arrangement the Club and Getaway Cars have announced a new two year deal. This will be a long term partnership, which will see over thirty youth teams carrying the Getaway Cars logo on the front of their playing shirt, and First Stop Travel on the neck of the shirt.
Jonathan Warnock, Sporting 87 Director of Football said, “We are so grateful to Glenn Edwards the Managing Director of Getaway Cars. Running a football club is becoming more challenging so this support is invaluable, and is a major boon to the Club. The deal will also see Getaway Cars take advertising in the First Team match day programme.”
Glenn Edwards explained “We are a local company that supports several local community groups where we can. Sporting 87 have a great positive influence in the local community and we are delighted to be able to support them. It worked very well for both of us last year, and now this year having our logo on all the youth teams will give our company much greater exposure.”
Darren Brown, Youth Chairman of the Club said “We are delighted that all of our youth teams, from U6s to U18s will carry the Getaway Cars logo on the front of our playing shirt. A brand new shirt for all our existing youth members is an incredible gesture by Getaway.”
