As the countdown to kick-off continues, Blackpool FC has secured a new signing for the club’s first season in the Premier League… Yep, Wonga has today been announced as the 2010/11 shirt sponsor!
Everyone here is bouncing around with excitement and looking forward to the new footie season with even more excitement than usual. Especially after the World Cup washout.
Our founder & CEO said of the deal, “We are still relatively young but we’re growing fast and have big ambitions, just like Blackpool. Their rise through the divisions and fairytale promotion last year was an inspiration for football fans all over the country, so it’s a great fit for Wonga.
“Seasiders are renowned for their passion, something we have bags of too. We want to help make this campaign exciting for everyone and have plenty of ideas for making a visit to Bloomfield Road a day to remember. It’s sure to be a rollercoaster of a season and we can’t wait for the ride to begin.”
The Wonga logo will be seen on the team’s shirts in all friendly, Premier League and cup games and will make a first appearance tonight, when Ian Holloway’s men travel down to Devon for their pre-season training camp.
C’mon The Seasiders!
