Swansea City Confirm 32red Sponsorship
Swansea City will be teaming up with new shirt sponsors 32red after clinching a 2-year deal with the online gambling company.
The deal is the biggest in the club's history and it will see the 32red.com logo placed on the new 2009/2010 shirts. They will also become the club's official online gaming partner.
While some clubs are finding it difficult to clinch sponsorship deals, Swansea City have been able to attract their best ever, and vice-chairman Leigh Dineen was delighted, he told the Official site:
'It shows how far Swansea City has come,''
'32Red were talking to a number of other football clubs, including some in the Premiership, about shirt sponsorship; but we are delighted to become their chosen partners in football. We are now a Championship club with a Premiership sponsor - and that's something we are very proud of.'
'It was also encouraging to see a number of other major companies express an interest in becoming our main sponsor. There were some very interesting discussions over the course of last season, but 32Red was without doubt the best deal for us.
'32Red is a modern company with global reach; has pro-active ideas and will help us spread the Swans message to the international stage. We are really excited about working with them and I'm sure we will make a great team.''
The children's replica shirts will have 'Second To None' on them instead of 32red.com, as the Football League don't allow the advertising of gambling on children's replica shirts.
