Evo Stik side Witton Albion get major sponsorship boost


Evo-Stik NPL Div 1 (north) club Witton Albion is teaming up with Preston-based technology company NetDec in a three-year partnership which will see Wincham Park re-named The NetDec Stadium.

NetDec also becomes the club’s communications partner in an arrangement which could benefit hundreds of businesses across Northwich regardless of their football allegiances.

As part of their tie-up with the football club, NetDec will be offering high-speed internet connectivity across the town, boosted by small aerials installed on floodlights at the Albion’s Wincham Park home.

NetDec founder and MD Craig Townley is delighted with the deal. “From our point of view this is a win-win. We were very impressed with Witton Albion’s vision for the future and want to be a part of that. The communications partnership also enables us to showcase our product, not just in Northwich, but also to the wider footballing community.”
Under the terms of the partnership, Witton will host a series of seminars and presentations as part of a business networking initiative designed to help local companies gain new customers.

Celebrating the club’s biggest sponsorship coup in a decade, Witton chairman Mark Harris paid tribute to new Commercial Consultant Trish Brockbank who secured the deal, also pointing out that the deal is a very different take on conventional sponsorships.

“I’m delighted that Trish has been able to bring this deal in so quickly after joining the club. NetDec is one of Trish’s existing contacts so this is a real endorsement of everything we are trying to do at Witton Albion.”

“The days when a football club simply took a sponsor’s money in return for displaying their logo have gone. In today’s world, providing a Return on Investment is essential. Our partnership with NetDec is precisely that. We will be providing NetDec with a marketing platform from which to provide local companies with better and faster internet connectivity.”

“This is great news for Witton Albion FC. We will be working hard to help NetDec achieve their objectives over the coming years and hope that other companies will follow NetDec’s example.”
