20.12.2016 - Mick George Ltd and Peterborough United announce Sponsorship Agreement
It is with great delight that Mick George Ltd can announce that the business has renewed its sponsorship agreement with Peterborough United Football Club, that will see the company remain as official kit sponsors, among other arrangements for a further three seasons.
The revised partnership will commence immediately at completion of the existing deal, due to finalise at the end of the current 2016/17 season.
Posh Commercial Manager Alex Harris was thrilled that the local business has agreed to extend their deal. “Everybody at Peterborough United are delighted that Mick George Ltd have agreed to sign an extension to the shirt sponsorship deal with the football club. “We are looking forward to working closely with the team at Mick George Ltd. They are a hugely progressive company who are expanding all of the time and it is fantastic that they are so heavily involved and committed to our football club.”
The agreement will see the Mick George Logo printed on all replica strips, home, away and third kit, worn in competitive action by the club at all levels. This includes the first team, reserve team, and all subsequent youth or academy teams.
As with previous years, the partnership will still incorporate a number of other elements such as the ‘Mick George Training Academy’ sponsorship, commercial waste services to all club facilities, as well as numerous additional community and fan engagement offerings.
To celebrate the news, Neil Johnson, Technical Director at Mick George Ltd, will be stepping out in front of the London Road faithful to take on club representatives in the Skip Challenge, to raise money for the Chris Turner Statue Fund.
In an extended encounter, Mick George Ltd have made up to £2,000 available to donate. The challenge will take place at half time of the forthcoming FA Cup replay fixture on Tuesday 20th December, against Notts County FC, from the ABAX Stadium, which is live on BT Sport.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’We have built a genuine and valued affinity with both the club and supporters since we became the front of shirt sponsor in 2014 and consider that we are seen as much a partner and fellow fan as opposed to just a corporate sponsor.
Through our association with the club, which dates back well before the shirt sponsorship commenced, we have regularly invested in the club supporting The Posh Foundation, The Training Academy at Nene Park and more recently the Chris Turner Memorial Fund amongst others.
We are fundamentally a local business, employing over 1,000 local people who continuously supporting local initiatives whether it be through sport, employment, social or community and be it through commercial partnerships, fund raising or donations.
We are proud to be the club’s front of shirt sponsor and hope that by signing a three year extension to the current deal, reflects the fantastic relationship that has been built between the Mick George Group, Peterborough United FC and its supporters.’’
