We are thrilled to announce that MBNA has renewed its sponsorship contract with Chester Football Club for a further three years.
- Credit card provider MBNA announces a three-year extension to its sponsorship deal with Chester Football Club, taking the partnership to 15 years.
- As the club’s principal partner, the collaboration is one of the longest in UK football and signals a strong intent from both brands for the future.
The principal partnership, which launched in 2010 and includes front of shirt sponsorship, will extend the partnership to a total of 15 years, one of the longest collaborations in UK football, along with the likes of Manchester City and Etihad, and Arsenal and Emirates.
MBNA’S continued support for the club and its community trust was highlighted at the recently-opened Chester FC King George V Sports Hub in Blacon. MBNA supports the Hub, which aims to help residents with inclusive events, as well as providing an accessible space for thousands of young people in the area to enjoy sports.
Jim Green, CEO of Chester FC’s Community Trust, said: “Our partnership with MBNA is so much more than a sponsorship agreement. After 12 successful years so far, our relationship is going from strength to strength and it is helping us as both a club and a trust to build for a brighter future.
“With an exciting new season to start and grand openings – such as the recent launch of the King George V Sports Hub – we’re looking forward to what’s to come over the next few years with loyal partners like MBNA by our side.”
The announcement of Chester FC’s new home shirt, available now and chosen by City Fans United members, comes as a signal of intent for the future refresh of the sponsorship agreement.
Victoria Dowd, Sponsorships Manager at MBNA, said: “We’re excited to renew our principal partnership deal with Chester FC for a further three years. We’ll be continuing to help the club succeed, alongside supporting the trust to deliver successful programmes in the community. The work and ambitions the club has for the next three years are fantastic and we look forward to working together closely.”
