Scarborough sign stadium sponsorship deal

Scarborough Athletic have announce that they have signed a ground naming rights deal with Flamingo Lane. 

The deal means that Scarborough Athletic’s home ground will be known as the “Flamingo Land Stadium”.

Flamingo Land have paid a a six figure sum and five year contract which was accepted by the Borough Council.

Athletics’s chairman Trevor Bull told the club’s website, this is a major boost for the club, he said: “One of my concerns for us has been the affordability of the required capacity increases. This is when we achieve our aim of promotion. We’ve all witnessed what happened to Darlington last season when they were denied a place in the promotion play-offs due to their ground not being of the required standard. This stadium sponsorship deal is certainly going to make that task a lot easier."

He added: “It is also a mark of how far we’ve come as a club over our 10 year existence that a majorly successful regional business wants to be associated with our brand. I’m looking forward to working with Gordon and his team to the benefit of Scarborough Athletic Football Club.”

Flamingo Land previously previously sponsored Scarborough Football Club in the 80’s & 90’s, they have also previously sponsored Hull City, Middlesborough and the Leeds United Academy.
