Arbroath secure sponsorship deal.

Last updated : 19 June 2004 By Simon

Arbroath officials last week finalized a deal with Allstars Sportsbars. Allstars are based in the Market Place and have different bars in Dundee, Brechin and Forfar. Allstars area manager, Gordon Keir, and Stevie Kirk shook hands on the deal last Tuesday.

This is a big difference from last year when the club had to eventually go to a lottery to secure a sponsor and the much needed financial boost.

Committee member Marc Davies said, “We are delighted to link up with a new business in the town and hopefully we can have a long and fruitful relationship. Allstars will be our main sponsor for the next 2 years and their name will be emblazoned on our new home kit and away kit. The new home kit should be available by the weekend and can be purchased from the ground or Sporting Look. It’s a huge relief to secure a deal so early on, in contrast to the problems we had last year when we eventually devised a lottery to find a lottery to find a sponsor for our shirts. It served its purpose at the time but we certainly wouldn’t want to have to do that again.”

In my opinion this is a fantastic deal for the club and a big well done to the committee for getting it!
