Technology firm Brother UK has announced a sponsorship deal with Fulham FC.
The Manchester-based firm which supplies printers, scanners, labellers, as well as office IT and technology equipment, will become Fulham’s official technology partner for the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League season with a view to a possible three-year deal.
Brother has secured a variety of marketing and advertising rights around Fulham FC, and will also provide resources to the club’s charity arm, the Fulham FC Foundation, including its Schools Enterprise Programmes.
The firm will also provide the club with technology and communications products and services across the club’s Craven Cottage stadium and Motspur Park training ground.
Phil Jones, managing director of Brother, said: “We’re delighted to announce this sponsorship at an exciting time for both Brother UK and Fulham FC.
“Partnership was always the key word for us going into this relationship and we’ve been extremely impressed at how eager the club has been to explore opportunities for integrating Brother products across its business.
“It promises to be a really exciting season both on and off the pitch.”
Alistair Mackintosh, Fulham FC chief executive, added: “We are delighted that they have decided to partner with us and look forward to their involvement in everything from the products we use around the training ground and Craven Cottage, to the resources used as part of our educational remit within the local community.”
