Bishop Auckland Football Club is pleased to announce a sponsorship deal with the Darlington Building Society which will help our focus on community engagement whilst providing a reward for our players with a Darlington Building Society ‘Man of the Match’ award.
At each game our mascots and ball boys / girls, who will be predominately from our Community Partners Bishop Auckland St Mary’s during the season, will choose a ‘Man of the Match’ from the Bishop Auckland team. The player chosen will be presented with an award (provided by the Club) and a photo will be taken with the player and the mascots / ball boys/girls which will feature in the next match day programme along with an advert for the Darlington Building Society.
Josh Palin, Brand and Customer Insight Officer of Darlington Building Society said ‘We are keen to support Bishop Auckland FC engage with the community bringing more young people to Heritage Park and involving them in match day activities; after all they will be future supporters of the Club and maybe even future players!’
Nick Postma, Chairman of Bishop Auckland FC said ‘as well as the programme advert the Building Society sponsors a pitch perimeter advertisement. Support from companies such as Darlington Building Society is hugely welcome’.
