Chester FC look for new stadium sponsor after Exacta deal ends


Conference side, Chester FC have begun searching for a new stadium sponsor – and they already have one offer on the table.

The opportunity to enter into partnership with the Blues arose after business rates company Exacta chose not to extend their three-year sponsorship agreement.

The stadium will revert back to being known as the Deva Stadium until a new sponsor comes forward to attach its name to the Bumpers Lane ground.

Dave Riche, who looks after the football club’s marketing and business development, said: “We have not just gone down the conventional routes of contacting businesses we know. We have turned to our 2,000 members along with the public to help find a sponsor.

“We are already getting some promising leads and some great ideas.

“We think the stadium sponsorship should be attractive to those seeking profile for their company or organisation – but it will also appeal to anyone who wants to back the community-focused, supporter-owned football club model.”

Riche added: “We already have one firm offer on the table, which we are considering, but it is not something we will rush into making a hasty decision on.

“It has to be the right brand and profile to help us move forward.”

The sponsorship opportunity would provide a business or brand with advertising both inside and outside the Deva Stadium, which attracts more than 100,000 visitors per year.

It is understood that Blues officials would ideally like to enter into a long-term deal, worth a six-figure sum if the agreement stretches to two years or more.

Both Riche and Blues chairman Tony Durkin expressed their thanks to Exacta for their support over the last three years.
