Hampton & Richmond Borough Football Club are delighted to announce that FotMob are our new shirt sponsors for the 2019-20 season.
FotMob is a mobile app for keeping up with the world of football - including live match updates, detailed stats, and breaking news - with five million users globally.
Chairman, Jacques Le Bars had this to say about the exciting partnership:
“Today is a big day for HRBFC. When I first took over as chairman I stated that there was a real need to move the club forward and modernise, not only our infrastructure but also the approach to our fanbase and how we communicate and promote ourselves to the wider audience. The deal we are announcing today is the first big step in our transformation.
In FotMob, we have partnered with a company which is at the forefront of mobile football apps, a company who provide today’s football supporter with a service that grows day by day and provides a touchpoint for the latest information and news, regardless of which team you follow. To have them supporting us is a coup.
They will not only provide financial assistance to the club but also work on new initiatives, promotions and drives which, I am certain, will see our fanbase and support both locally, and in the wider football world grow year-on-year.”
Curt Baker, FotMob's Head of Brand and Partnerships added:
“We’re proud to be supporting Hampton & Richmond Borough FC and the incredible community that powers the club. FotMob began 15 years ago as a project to help us follow our local club - and partnering with HRBFC is a continuation of that passion for local, community-minded football.
We feel very lucky to be a part of Hampton and Richmond’s season and look forward to supporting Gary and the boys throughout the year. We’ll see you all at the Bev.”
More details of the partnership and of course the new kit will be announced very soon.
