Today the club announced that there would be a different sponsor for each game. This was after they failed to agree a deal for a season long shirt sponsor to replace F&C investments.
On one hand it could be a clever marketing idea which would raise more money especially if we play a lot of cup games. On the other it could be a symptom of the state the club is in that we could not arrange something that we have done every other season. Also how many times will we find that we don’t have a new sponsor lined up for the next fixture as they come thick and fast in the Championship. At least if we get a rubbish sponsor opposing fans won’t be able to laugh at us for long.
The big bonus for me is that the replica shirts will be sponsor free which I think makes them look so much better. I for one will definitely be getting the home one now and I’ve heard of people who will be getting all three. They might be collector’s items in a few years time. Maybe this will be a real revenue boost after all.
What do you think of this?
