SPL’s St. Mirren Sign JD Sports Shirt Sponsorship
February 11, 2011
Scottish Premier League (SPL) soccer side St Mirren Football Club, who currently find themselves just one place off the bottom of the table, have been given a boost after agreeing a new kit deal and sponsorship with sports retail company JD Sports.
The new deal will see one of JD’s exclusive fashion brand, Carbrini Sportswear, emblazoned on the kit of the Scottish club for the next three years from the beginning of next season. Carbrini will provide the club with a new design which will see the team return to a fully black and white striped kit with no panel on the back.
Richard Atkinson, St Mirren director, spoke of the deal: “It is great to be able to do a deal with a company that can provide the club both the individual attention in a bespoke designed kit as well as the multi-site retail reach of a major British owned and based business. I am personally very excited about the way in which the club and the JD Sports relationship could develop over the coming years”
Guy Walker of JD Sports added: “This is a great deal for both St Mirren Football Club and JD Sports. We are very much looking forward to developing our relationship with the fans and the club as well as bringing to them both kits that really reflect the historic colours, designs and traditions of St Mirren Football Club.”
