Crystal Palace fans sponsor club shirt

Fri 12th Mar 2010 | Football Sponsorship

Crystal Palace Football Club have teamed up with the Crystal Palace Supporters Trust launch the scheme in which supporters are asked to contribute £25 towards the sponsorship fund and the name of every fan that takes part will feature on a special poster in the matchday programme for the Preston game as well as a special scroll of honour on the giant screen.

The clubs main sponsor GAC Logistics have agreed to give up the branding on the front of the home shirts for this match and it will now carry the logo of the Supporters Trust. All supporters taking part will get the chance to win the shirts worn by the players on the day along with some other fantastic prizes.

So far the initiative has raised over £10,000 with a target of £50,000.

Chief Executive Phil Alexander expressed his delight at the response of the scheme commenting, "We have been extremely pleased with how it has been received and we want to thank those who have already pledged their money for this initiative.

"But there is still a long way to go and we are continuing to look at different ways of spreading this message to encourage more and more fans to back the club in its hour of need."

The feedback from fans has also been extremely positive Terry Beattie, from Paddock Wood, was the first supporter to sponsor the Preston game and he told us that he hopes the incentive will bring more Palace fans together over the next few weeks.

"It is a good idea and hopefully it can raise some much needed money for the club.

"Hopefully as many people as possible can get behind it because Palace are in dire need of help at the moment. It has been a couple of hectic months so hopefully this initiative can bring everyone together."
