Aldershot Stadium Sponsors Create Electric Atmosphere
Mon 9th Sep 2013 | Football Sponsorship
Aldershot Town Football Club have confirmed Electrical Services Southern Ltd as the new sponsors of The Recreation Ground.
For the next three years, The Shots will play their home games at the Electrical Services Stadium, in recognition of the continued support of the Central Heating Services group of companies.
Rob Banks, Managing Director of CHS, said: "Central Heating Services are delighted as a strong supporter of Aldershot Town Football Club and the local community to see one of our Group companies, Electrical Services Southern, take up the mantle as the main sponsor for the stadium. We are proud to state that Aldershot Town’s home will now be called the Electrical Services Stadium.
“We are wholly enthused that the East Bank will also be known as the CHS Stand, to associate our Group of companies with the Football Club but also to participate in the dream and future success of the team, whilst working within the local community. It is a partnership we will cherish and drive throughout the season. Come on Aldershot Town!”
Aldershot Town Chairman, Shahid Azeem, said: “Aldershot Town Football Club are proud and delighted that the historic support we have enjoyed from the Central Heating Service Group has been taken to a higher level. This is excellent news from two clear points of view. The first is that it is evidence of an extremely welcome higher level of financial support from the CHS Group. This is over and above their considerable and on-going maintenance work, from which we have greatly benefited.
“The second is that it fits beautifully with our stated and firm intention of becoming a community club with much closer local ties. We are extremely grateful to the CHS Board for their fantastic help and support, and we look forward to a long period of cooperation and mutual benefit to all parties.
“It is an added bonus to be able to say that EBB and Tim Elliott, the previous stadium sponsors, are happy to continue their business association with the Club and will continue to hold the naming rights to the EBB Lounge.”
