The new five-year agreement means that ‘Franklyn’ will continue to adorn the West Stand at the bet365 Stadium, as well as a variety of Club inventory.
Managing Director of FFM, Andrew Chatterton, said: “As our initial sponsorship was approaching its end after two fantastic years working with SCFC, it was a natural decision to extend the contract.
“We decided to extend for five years to demonstrate our commitment at Franklyn Financial Management to the Club, supporters and the wider local community.””
Stoke City Chief Executive Tony Scholes added: “In today’s climate, a five-year agreement is a very significant commitment which reflects how well the partnership has developed in the first two years and we are delighted to continue for many years to come.
“It also underlines Franklyn Financial Management’s desire to embrace long term objectives, build lasting relationships within the Club, with our fans and the Staffordshire region.”
Here at FFM, we are proud to have forged a close relationship with the Potters over the past two years, sponsoring a number of high-profile Club events, including an evening with City legends Robert Huth and Jon Walters.
We also hosted a Friends of FFM Business lunch at the stadium which featured two ex-Potters greats in Terry Conroy and Chris Iwelumo.
Complimenting the work that we do as part of our education programme with schools in the local area, we have also conducted regular financial workshops with the Club’s Under-23 squad, whilst members of our own team even graced the turf at the bet365 Stadium in the Franklyn Football Match in aid of the Donna Louise Trust, which also featured City staff and ex-first team stars.
