SWINDON Town have sold the naming rights to the County Ground to The Energy Checking Company Ltd.

As part of this deal, Town's home will now be known as The Energy Check County Ground.

In a significant commercial deal for the club, the partnership with The Energy Check, the club expect that it will open up new revenue streams.

The Energy Check are an international energy consultancy and their aim is to reduce their customer's energy consumption, carbon footprint and energy costs in the UK, Republic of Ireland, France and the USA.

As part of the agreement between the two parties, The Energy Check will see their branding across the stadium and they will be working with the club to deliver energy reductions through energy efficiency measures.

Town's chief executive Steve Anderson said: "I would like to welcome The Energy Check as a major sponsor of the football club and we look forward to a long and successful partnership together.

"This deal represents a significant move forward commercially for the football club and sustainability.

"The rebranding of stadiums within top flight football has been happening for over a decade and we felt that the time had come to explore such opportunities for Swindon Town."

Robyn Smith, Corporate Partnership Manager at The Energy Check, said: "We're very excited to be a part of this great club that has a proud history.

"There have been so many positive changes at Swindon Town, and this partnership will see us associated as part of their growing success."
