North Shields FC Sign Fans Sponsorship Deal With Three

Tue 5th May 2015 | Football Sponsorship

Mobile network Three has become the official Fans Sponsor of North Shields FC ahead of their historic trip to Wembley for the FA Vase on May 9

As far as English footballing traditions go it’s one of the most memorable occasions for any football fan across the country, travelling to see their team hopefully win and lift a major trophy. 

To celebrate this fan loyalty, mobile network Three has announced it has become the Official Fans sponsor of North Shields FC for their FA Vase Final match at Wembley against Glossop North End

The unique footballing deal is aimed at rewarding their loyal support and helping North Shields fans stay connected to the team throughout their journey down from the North East to Wembley.

As part of the sponsorship, North Shields will become the first football team to crowd source its celebration. In a chance to offer their very own celebratory master class, whether it’s a Peter Crouch inspired robot, a shadow boxing Wayne Rooney or a simple Alan Shearer hand raise, fans will be able to contribute their moves on Twitter, which will be complied by a choreographer and executed by the team when they score at Wembley.

Anyone wishing to submit to the celebration can do so through @NorthShieldsFC and using the hashtag #ThreeConnects.

Danny Dixon, director of customer strategy at Three, commented: "We’re delighted to sponsor North Shields for their big game at Wembley, connecting the club with its fans and keeping everyone up to date with the score.

“We are proud of our reliable network and I'm excited to see how they develop their winning celebration for when they hopefully lift the cup!”

Graham Fenton, manager at North Shields FC, said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Three as our official fans sponsor for our massive game at Wembley.

“The support we’ve had from the supporters and local community since we booked out place in the final has been fantastic, so it’s great to see them gain recognition for their achievement from Three.

“There is no denying it’s a long trip down from Shields to London but with Three’s network we’ll be able to keep connected and engaged with the fans more than ever.”
