BAPP For Bolts Extend Club Sponsorship!

9 December 2016

The Barnsley-based company will now remain as our Back of Shorts sponsor until the end of the 2018/19 season.

We are delighted to announce that local company BAPP For Bolts have recently concluded a deal to extend their sponsorship at the Club for a further two-years and will now remain as our Back of Shorts sponsor until the end of the 2018/19 season.

The shorts sponsorship deal, which originally started at the beginning of the 2015/16 season, sees the BAPP For Bolts logo proudly feature on the back of all of the Club’s home, away and third kit replica shorts, as well as extensive branding around Oakwell Stadium.

Barnsley Football Club’s Commercial Manager Ian Leech was thrilled to have extended another commercial partnership and commented, “I’m overjoyed to continue a truly valued sponsorship with a major business in the local community. BAPP have been an integral part of our recent commercial success and this new deal highlights the value that companies get through working with Barnsley Football Club. BAPP For Bolts are a massive part of our commercial family and I would like to say a sincere thank you to Dean Cook, Ben Platts, Richard Ward and everyone connected with the company for their loyal and continued support of our Club. Their support allows us to make significant progress off-the-field and we can’t thank them enough for continuing what is a fantastic existing partnership.”

Ben Platts, Managing director of BAPP Industrial Supplies said, “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Barnsley Football Club with the back of shorts sponsorship. We have been an Official Club Partner for the past two years and really feel that Ian and his team are building a great business community and strong commercial opportunities for local organisations like ourselves. When the chance came along to have the BAPP For Bolts logo feature on the first team shorts for the next two seasons it was an opportunity that we couldn’t refuse and we can’t wait to see the Reds run out in the BAPP for Bolts kit during the next two seasons.”

Richard Ward of the BAPP Group also added, “The sponsorship will also allow us to support the local community and schools again with a number of initiatives, so that’s something we’re really excited about. Our affiliation with the Club goes back decades as Norman Rimmington is my Grandad, so we’re honoured and proud to continue our support of this great Football Club which our family has been part of for over 70 years.”

BAPP for Bolts are currently Official Club Business Partners, Executive Box Owners and our Back of Shorts Sponsors. Everyone associated with the Club would like to take this opportunity to thank BAPP for Bolts for their loyal passionate support.
