Exeter City have announced that Flybe have extended its sponsorship for a 12th season. Flybe is the locally based airline situated at Exeter’s international airport. The relationship between the Grecians and the airline is one the of the longest in the Football League.
Martin Smith, Flybe’s Director of Marketing, comments:
We’re delighted to be extending our shirt sponsorship of the club for the upcoming 2014/15 season. Grecians’ supporters have been extremely supportive of Flybe over the years and we are proud to have the opportunity to continue our special relationship with the Club and its fans.
Chief Executive of Exeter City FC, Guy Wolfenden, said:
We are absolutely thrilled to have the backing of Flybe again this season. This is now one of the longest standing corporate sponsorship for a current Football League Club.
Exeter City has been focusing on developing youngsters from the community and nurturing them to become great footballers. Last season saw many of these players making their debut for the First Team and we are excited to see many others coming through the Academy this year.
I would like to thank Flybe for its continued support – we couldn’t compete at this level or offer the Training Academy that we have without the backing of corporate partners like Flybe.
Martin Smith added:
We look forward to our continued partnership and, on behalf of everyone at Flybe, I would like to wish the Club every success for the coming season and, of course, for their very special match against Brazil!
The value of the sponsorship has not been revealed.
