Vanarama extend sponsorship of Football Conference


In an official statement today, The Football Conference said is delighted to announce www.­Vanarama.­co.­uk, the UK's No1 van leasing company who became title sponsor of the Football Conference at the start of this current season, has upgraded its current agreement and will continue as title sponsor for season 2015/16.

This information was released to the Football Conference’s member clubs at their EGM in Telford on Thursday.

Brian Lee, the Chairman of the Football Conference commented, "Vanarama has demonstrated in a short space of a few months how a major sponsor can fully engage in an interactive manner, not only with our member clubs but most importantly their fans and our other partners. It has been a collective approach and been rewarded with a volume of first class comments received from many quarters of the game and the business world.”

Vanarama's managing director and founder Andy Alderson stated: “We have been thrilled by the response to our sponsorship from fans and clubs alike.

“We are now seeking to increase our involvement in Conference football over the coming months, and plans for 2015/16 season to help make this great Competition bigger and better are already looking very exciting.”

For Brian Lee, the announcement was of particular significance: "This announcement is pleasing for me personally, for I am able in the last few months of my stewardship, prior to passing the baton to Brian Barwick, to sincerely thank Vanarama.

“It will assist to make the incoming Chairman's position much easier, in as much that our partnership with Vanarama is blossoming and that must be really positive for my successor to know already.

“Andy and his staff have in return been very complimentary about how member clubs, our staff and my fellow directors have responded to their open and often innovative sponsorship.

“I am sure I speak on behalf of all connected with our Competition that we look forward to our relationship continuing even past 2015/16."
