Barnsley FC are delighted to welcome Visual Effects & Creative Studio, Parliament, to the Oakwell family.

As part of a three-year agreement, the Parliament brand will feature on all home, away and third kits, starting with the recently released 21/22 range.

Founded in 2020, Parliament are an independent Visual Effects and Creative Studio, who leverage their legacy and experience to create new platforms and vehicles for creative ideas and execution.

Phil Crowe, of Parliament said: “At Parliament we are beyond thrilled to be able to support Barnsley FC through this sponsorship.

“I’m a lifelong supporter myself. My first match was against Hereford in 1979; my dad used to take my brothers and myself to matches as kids, and they’re all still season ticket holders (apparently my mum went to that same match, but screamed so much she was never let back in). I live in the United States now, so getting up in the middle of the night or early hours to watch games or listen to the commentary on iFollow Barnsley has been part of my routine for years, but it’s just not the same as being at Oakwell. 

“I’m really proud of my home town and love to see the enthusiasm and spirit in the fans. 

"Barnsley gave me so much, and I’m humbled to be able to get involved and give back and I can’t wait to work with the club in the future.”

Business Development Executive at Oakwell, Lee Wassell, added: “We’re delighted to bring Parliament onboard as partners for our upcoming Sky Bet Championship campaign.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for us to align ourselves with an international brand and we’ve seen first-hand some of the very impressive work they have produced.

“Along with Nicolas de Montauzon, it’s been fantastic initiating this partnership with Phil at Parliament; seeing his passion and support for Barnsley FC and the town has been constant from the very beginning. They are exactly the type of company that we as a club want to be associated with.”
