Evo-Stik become sponsor of Southern League for second time



EVO-STIK have returned as the title sponsor of the Southern League on a deal that will last an initial 21 months.

The Bostik brand, who currently sponsor the Northern Premier League, were also on board with the Southern League from 2011-13 before being replaced by Calor.

Their one-year deal expired in the summer and the league were left running without a sponsor for the first time since 2005 with chairman Ken Turner saying back in August: “Having reached the final stage with a large national company at the end of June, it was disap­po­inting that they sadly decided not to proceed, so it was back to the drawing board where we remain.”

However, the league have now secured a deal that will last for 21 months with an option for a further year’s sponsorship until the end of the 2016-17 season.

A league statement said: “The Directors and Officers of the Southern Football League are pleased to announce an agreement between Bostik (Evo-Stik) and the Southern League to sponsor our competition over the next 21 months with an option to negotiate a further twelve months for 2016/2017."

“The League will be known as The Evo-Stik League Southern and the divisions known as The Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division, The Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central and The Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South & West.”
