Gelder Group Secure Naming Rights of Lincoln City’s Ground
August 12, 2013
Lincoln City Football Club’s home ground will now be called the Gelder Group Sincil Bank Stadium after the Gelder Group secured the naming rights to the stadium.
The deal will run for the duration of the 2013-14 Conference season, the fifth-tier of English football, and comes at a time when the Gelder Group celebrates its 25th year in business.
Steve Gelder MBE, Managing Director of the Gelder Group said: “m delighted that the Gelder Group name will be associated with our local football club in this, our 25th year of business.
“Whilst we have been involved with the Club in the past, this is by far the biggest partnership we’ve had and it goes without saying that I wish Gary Simpson, his players and everyone connected with the Imps every success for the coming season.”
Lincoln’s Commercial Manager Russell Moore added: “”Whilst Gary has been busy with on-field signings, this latest off-field acquisition is just as important to the Club and comes as a culmination of a great deal of hard work behind the scenes in the build-up to the new campaign.
“This agreement on top of all other recent sponsorship announcements truly shows the businesses of Lincolnshire are supporting Lincoln City Football Club.”
The Imps drew their opening game of the Conference campaign away at Woking 0-0 on Saturday and welcome Macclesfield on Tuesday August 13 for their first game at the newly named stadium.
