SWINDON TOWN: Samsung extend club sponsorship
SAMSUNG has renewed its sponsorship of Swindon Town for the 2013/14 campaign.
The deal, which the Advertiser understands is worth between £75,000 and £80,000 to the club in its entirety, will see the electronics giant’s logo emblazoned across of both the Robins’ home and away shirts next season.
It is also understood to included continued strategic partnerships with other sponsors, such as EA Sports, The People newspaper and Pro-Direct Soccer, all of whom are believed to have been brought to the club over the past three years thanks to Samsung’s involvement.
The agreement will feature the return of the Samsung Win A Pro Contract competition. A fourth edition of the nationwide talent search will look for a successor to previous winners Jordan Pavett, Chris Smith and Kayden Jackson.
J Y Kim, deputy managing director of Samsung UK and Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Swindon Town FC for a fourth season.
“We are looking forward to the team performing well on the pitch, and to watching the progress of Samsung Win A Pro Contract winner 2012/2013 Kayden Jackson.
“We are very happy that Swindon Town will be working with Samsung once again on Win A Pro Contract, and providing another hard working young person with a life-changing opportunity as a professional footballer.”
Town chairman Jed McCrory said: “I am sure all Swindon Town supporters will be delighted to hear the news that we have renewed our partnership with Samsung.
“Samsung’s support remains very important to the club, and we look forward to building on what is already a solid relationship.
“Over the past three seasons the Samsung Win A Pro Contract initiative has helped raise the profile of the club, while also proving a ground-breaking and engaging project for both parties. Kayden Jackson will join the club for pre-season training, and we wish him every success.”
Meanwhile, a three-part documentary series charting the progress of Jackson through the Win A Pro competition starts on Sky Sports tomorrow.
The programme, entitled ‘Pro Contract – The Football Dream’, kicks off on Sky Sports 1 at 5.30pm on Thursday and continues on the following two evenings.
