Burnley branch out with new sponsor on neck of shirts
Burnley Football Club is delighted to announce a new lucrative shirt sponsorship deal with Oak Furniture Land.
The Clarets have signed a two-year-deal with the Burnley-based company, who will have their brand on the back of the home and away shirts.
Oak Furniture Land, the UK’s largest retailer of solid hardwood furniture, will have their name on the shirts from the Boxing Day game with Derby County at Turf Moor.
Mr Jason Bannister, managing director of Oak Furniture Land: “I am a Burnley lad, born and bred and a huge fan.
“We have just opened a store in Burnley, so this was a very apt time to be linking up with the football club through this sponsorship deal and it’s a proud moment for me personally.
“I am sure this will be the start of a great relationship between us both.”
Mr Anthony Fairclough, Director of Commercial Affairs at Burnley FC, added: “We would like to place on record our thanks to Jason and Oak Furniture land for their sponsorship.
“The deal is the most lucrative we’ve had for the back of the shirts and that clearly demonstrates the company’s support for Burnley football Club.”
