The board of Banbury United have announced that Bloxham Mill Business Centre is to become the club’s Official Media Sponsor for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.
In a two-year deal worth an annual four figure sum to the club, Bloxham Mill Business Centre will have its branding and company message added to all the club’s media platforms, including the club’s website, Twitter and Facebook pages, You Tube Channel, Match Day Highlights and all club news articles.
Banbury United’s Commercial Director Mark Allitt was really pleased to get an agreement in place and said, “This is a sponsorship deal I’ve wanted to achieve for some time because Bloxham Mill has a great local reputation. I’m delighted that Ray Avery, Bloxham Mill’s Managing Director, has decided to back us with this new concept. How we get the club’s message and information across is rapidly changing via social media and the internet, and as a club, we are embracing that.
The superb efforts of our Communications Director, David Shadbolt, have transformed our website into an award-winning site; now one of the most highly rated in non-league circles.
Coupled with over 5,000 Twitter followers, we knew we were in a position to attract a main sponsor; so all of the ongoing discussions between Bloxham Mill and our club have now come to fruition. It’s a win-win on both sides.”
Ray Avery comments, “We’re very proud to be Banbury United’s first-ever Media Sponsor and look forward to working closely with them over the next two years. The club is on a real high at the moment and has really progressed in the past two years since it became a supporter-owned club, and I hope our backing will help it to flourish even further.”
Banbury United Chairman Ronnie Johnson also commented, “This type of sponsorship package is new to the club but one that is much needed. We thank Ray Avery and his team at Bloxham Mill for supporting us and for the commitment of a two-year package.”
