By iSportconnect | March 28, 2013

Heart of Midlothian Football Club has announced that Wonga has extended its shirt sponsorship deal to the end of the 2013/14 season.

Wonga has been the Scottish Premier League club’s shirt sponsor since 2011.

Hearts’ commercial director, Vitalijus Vasiliauskas, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that Wonga is continuing to give such strong support to Heart of Midlothian Football Club and Scottish football for the remainder of this and next season.

“The partnership has been a great success. Wonga has been the most engaged and involved sponsor the club has had and I’m sure supporters have seen that with the amount of fan initiatives taking place over the past two seasons. This was again demonstrated by the various Wonga initiatives at the Cup Final, including the creation of a giant Hearts shirt for fans. We look forward to working with them for the rest of this season and again in 2013/14.”

Darryl Bowman, marketing director, Wonga added: “It’s been brilliant to work with the Club and the fans over the past two years. We’re really looking forward to continuing to support Hearts next season as they embark on new adventures in the Scottish Premier League and cup competitions.

“We’ll also continue to work closely with the Club and its supporters to enhance fans’ match day experience.”
