Brother UK has announced a new partnership which will see the firm become Fulham Football Club’s ‘Official Technology Partner’ for the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League season.
The new contract will last a year, with a view to a possible three-year deal.
A key part of the deal involves Brother UK supporting Fulham FC with its range of technology and communications products and services across the club’s Craven Cottage stadium and Motspur Park training ground.
Products such as Brother’s OmniJoin web conferencing will be introduced as part of Fulham FC’s business operations.
As the club’s ‘Official Technology Partner’, Brother UK has secured a variety of marketing and advertising rights around Fulham Football Club. In addition, Brother UK will dedicate a wealth of resources to the club’s charity arm, the Fulham FC Foundation, including its Schools Enterprise Programmes.
Phil Jones, Managing Director of Brother UK 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 Football Club, CEO, added: “Brother UK, by its own admission, is a company dedicated to the principle of continuous improvement throughout every aspect of its operation. A principle which we feel epitomises our actions both on and off the pitch. 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.”
