The Book People are pleased to announce a major three-year sponsorship deal with Bangor City Football Club. Under the terms of the agreement, Bangor City’s new stadium at Nantporth will now be known as The Book People Stadium. Bangor City, affectionately known as the Citizens, will also have the Book People logo featured on their kit and there will be advertising for the Book People displayed throughout the ground.
The deal with the Welsh Premier League side came about as the Book People has had a warehouse and Customer Service centre based in Bangor since 2002. On announcing the deal, the Book People’s Chairman Ted Smart said: ‘This is a brilliant opportunity for the football club, the Book People and the local community in Bangor. The Book People has always been extremely community focused and we felt this was a fantastic opportunity to give something back to a community we are proud to be part of.’
Bangor City Chairman Dilwyn Jones also said about the deal: ‘We welcome this new partnership with the Book People – a business which has played a significant role in the local economy for the past ten years. At tough times for business, we particularly appreciate the valuable investment that the Book People is making in Bangor City FC, and we look forward to repaying the confidence shown in us.”
The deal will be in place for the first match of the 2012/13 Welsh Premier League season on Friday 17 August when Bangor will take on Connah’s Quay Nomads. Kick-off is at 7.30pm.
