Notts County name Jake Bugg as official shirt sponsor

Notts County has confirmed its complete list of shirt sponsors for the 2017-18 campaign.

The club’s kit will have a new sponsor each month for the upcoming season with a series of businesses taking up month-long deals.

Among those to sign up to the package is singer Jake Bugg who has agreed to sponsor the club throughout the month of November.

Bugg is joined by the likes of Mace Sport (August), Premier Electrical Services (Sep), Sports Gateway (Oct), Showcase Cinema (Dec), Eversheds Sutherland (Jan), The Senator Group (Feb), Bassingfield Woodyard (Mar), Premier Facilities Management (Apr) and Paragon (Cup matches).

The new sponsorship opportunity has been greeted with huge positivity and commercial operations manager Simon Fotheringham is delighted all 10 packages have been sold at this early stage of the summer.

Fotheringham said: "From the very first conversations I had with existing sponsors, through to some of the new companies and individuals who we haven't worked with before, it's all been so positive.

"In addition to the 10 sponsors who have taken this opportunity, it's also opened up conversations with other organisations who are interested in working with us going forward.

"The initiative has created interest from a wide and diverse range of businesses and individuals and we're delighted to have them on board for 2017-18.

"To attract someone of Jake Bugg's stature, for example, is a major coup for us. Add in the fact Jake's a massive Notts fan and it's a match made in heaven!

"We have spent the last few weeks working closely with each of the sponsors to tailor packages to suit their individual needs and in the coming months there will be exclusive competitions to help supporters engage with them all."

Notts' commercial director Amanda Fletcher added: "We are all absolutely delighted that the local business community has rallied around our idea and made it a resounding success.

"A huge amount of thought and hard work has gone into creating a package which will help us build on our already-strong links with Nottinghamshire businesses.

"We will shortly be inviting each of our sponsors to an exclusive launch event at the Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club, which will mark the beginning of 10 special relationships."

Notts' new Puma replica shirts will be available to purchase without a sponsor. Supporters will have the opportunity to have any of the 10 logos applied at no cost should they wish.

More information on the launch of the club's new kit will be announced in due course.
