Probably the first time in a while, the Football Conference can finish the season knowing that they have title sponsors sorted for the next season.
The member clubs of the Football Conference held an EGM in Telford yesterday when they had the news that Vanarama has upgraded its current arrangement and will continue as the title sponsors for the 2015/16 season.
Brian Lee, chairman of the Football Conference commented:-
Vanarama has demonstrated in a short space of a few months how a major sponsor can fully engage in an interactive manner, not only with our member clubs but most importantly their fans and our other partners. It has been a collective approach and been rewarded with a volume of first class comments received from many quarters of the game and the business world.
The announcement had particular significance for Brian Lee:-
This announcement is pleasing for me personally, for I am able in the last few months of my stewardship, prior to passing the baton to Brian Barwick, to sincerely thank Vanarama. It will assist to make the incoming chairman’s position much easier, in as much that our partnership with Vanarama is blossoming and that must be really positive for my successor to know already.
Andy and his staff have in return been very complimentary in how member clubs and our staff and my fellow directors have responded to their open and often innovative sponsorship. I am sure I speak on behalf of all connected with our competition that we look forward to our relationship continuing even past 2015/16.
Vanarama’s managing director and founder Andy Alderson stated:-
We have been thrilled by the response to our sponsorship by fans and clubs alike. We are now seeking to increase our involvement in Conference football over the coming months, and plans for 2015/2016 season to help make this great competition bigger and better are already looking very exciting.
