Darlington Building Society has been announced as the new Darlington Football Club Youth and Community sponsor for this season.
As part of the deal, the building society will work closely with the football club across a broad spectrum of youth football and community match day initiatives.
In addition, the brand new Darlington Building Society logo, which was unveiled yesterday (Thursday, September 10th, 2015), will be featured on the front of the playing shirts of all the Darlington FC youth teams.
It will also appear on the t-shirts worn by the children taking part in the Community Schools Programme on match days throughout the season.
Dave Mills, director of Darlington Football Club, said: “It is an honour to welcome back Darlington Building Society to the football club as our new Youth and Community sponsor and we look forward to building a successful relationship with them, not only for this season but hopefully for the long term.
“Darlington Building Society is an iconic local business with a real family and community ethos which we feel is the perfect fit for the Club. As the partnership has youth at its heart, it will be fun and will provide both parties with the opportunity to interact with each other’s core followers to ensure the supporters also benefit from this new deal.”
Colin Fyfe, Chief Executive of Darlington Building Society, added: “We are proud to be supporting the youth team at Darlington FC. It is such a perfect fit for the Society as we start a new chapter in our long and successful history in the town.
“Our whole ethos is to make a positive difference in the community and the involvement with the town’s youth team demonstrates our desire to create firm links with organisations that will help us to do that. We are looking forward to an enjoyable season.”
