First Division Longford Town have confirmed that Bishopsgate Group will be the new sponsor of the club ahead of the 2020 campaign.

The Bishopsgate Group have signed a ‘record-breaking’ deal with the Midlander’s, ahead of Longford’s latest attempt to achieve top-flight football.

The new agreement will see Bishopsgate as the new main sponsor of Longford Town, with their logo featuring on the first-team home and away kits.

They will also have title rights to the stadium and additional hoarding in and around the grounds.

Longford Town chairman Jim Hanley told the club’s media team; “The new deal is incredibly important to the club as it sees Longford Town partner with a well-established company that focuses on the commercial benefit of association with our league, with many fans, volunteers and ambassadors working in the UK and the construction sector.

“It ensures that the club and our wider community can benefit from the record-breaking sponsorship deal we have agreed with the Bishopsgate Group.”

Luke Shannon-Little, Managing Director of the Bishopsgate Group added; “Being able to support and work alongside a football club that has clear focus and ambition, and has demonstrated clear success within the Airtricity League is an exciting opportunity for Bishopsgate.

“The connection between Bishopsgate’s business within the construction sector and the significant increase in Irish construction enterprise means both Bishopsgate and Longford Town FC can mutually benefit from the new deal, providing opportunities to the surrounding local communities.

“I am excited to see what the new season brings and hopefully this marks the start of a long and beneficial relationship.”
