ebm-papst announces sponsorship deals with local football clubs for the new season

Leading fan manufacturer, ebm-papst, has announced sponsorship deals with Chelmsford City and Leyton Orient Football Clubs for the 2015/16 football season.

The Chelmsford-based company’s sponsorship deals are part of its continued commitment to both local football clubs and the wider Essex community. Chelmsford City and Leyton Orient Football Clubs are both involved in a number of outreach programmes and activities with local communities and charities.

ebm-papst has been sponsoring Chelmsford City for the past seven seasons and Leyton Orient since 2010. This season’s sponsorship deal with Leyton Orient involves pitch side advertising behind both of the goals and hospitality, while the deal with Chelmsford City involves pitch side advertising around the stadium and advertising in match day programmes along with hospitality.

During the 2015/16 football season, Chelmsford City will be competing in the Vanarama National League South, while Leyton Orient is in League 2 with the club currently top of the league.

David Jarvis, Managing Director of ebm-papst, says: “We are confident of great things from Leyton Orient and Chelmsford City this season. The sponsorship of both football teams is a vital part of our work and support for the local community. Everybody at ebm-papst and all the supporters of the clubs will be shouting their hearts out to encourage the teams every step of the way.”

Mick Hull, Head of Commercial Sales for Chelmsford City Football Club, says: “We are truly grateful to ebm-papst for renewing their sponsorship of Chelmsford City football club for the 2015/2016 season. We are a community football club that works with people of all ages and genders, from youth academies to our over-70 teams. We need companies like ebm-papst to support us financially to help keep the club afloat and so we can continue all our fantastic work in the local community and with local charities, such as Age UK Essex. We hope that this support helps to spur on our first team to promotion and a good cup run.”

Steve Dixon, Head of Commercial for Leyton Orient Football Club, says: “We are absolutely delighted that ebm-papst has renewed its sponsorship for the 2015/16 season. We value the support from our corporate sponsors, especially ebm-papst who has been a fantastic supporter of the club for a number of years. We hope this excellent relationship continues for many years to come.”
