AFC Bournemouth have renewed their partnership with local dental clinic Dental on the Banks for the current 2023/24 Premier League season, remaining as the official dental partner of the club.
Dental on the Banks are a dental clinic located in Bournemouth, England, and operate on all things dental, including hygienic and cosmetic care. Dental on the Banks are proud providers of dental care to AFC Bournemouth players and staff – including trauma management during home games. All first-team and under-21s players underwent pre-screening at Vitality Stadium, courtesy of Dental on the Banks, with plans to also be a part of medical screenings for newly signed players in the future.
AFC Bournemouth are a much smaller club in comparison to the giants of the English game. The club stadium holds just over 11,000, more than seven times smaller than Manchester United’s Old Trafford. Up until the commencement of the 2023/24 season, AFC Bournemouth held the record for the smallest stadium capacity in Premier League history, just beaten out by newly promoted Luton Town.
These small community driven clubs do not gather a large country, or world-wide audience. Thus, it can be difficult to attract sponsorships and partners, in comparison to other clubs which would receive much greater traffic and R.O.I.
AFC Bournemouth Commercial Director Rob Mitchell shared his delight about the renewal.
“We’re really thrilled to have Dental on the Banks on board for another year and we’re extremely appreciative of the benefits they provide,” he said via media release.
“We’ve established a strong relationship over the short period of time that we’ve been working together and I can’t wait for it to grow further across the 2023/24 season.”
Dr Ramtin Taheri, Principal Dentist from Dental on the Banks also commented via press release:
“We are honoured to continue to be the official dentist of AFC Bournemouth,” he said.
“Our practice has always been committed to promoting oral health and wellness, and this partnership allows us to extend our expertise to the athletes that inspire our community.
“We look forward to working closely with AFC Bournemouth and contributing to their success both on and off the field.”
Partnering with smaller local businesses, which albeit, may not provide a wealth of financial stimulus for the club, but it certainly drives community togetherness, as well as reducing costs for the club, which is as equally as important as getting money in the door. For Dental on the Banks, this opportunity to align themselves with heroes of the local community is a terrific opportunity to be a part of the success of the club in hopes of this reflecting in their business.
This partnership looks to continue its great successes in which shared community values bring local businesses and the football club together, to further develop the tightly knit Bournemouth community, into one of smiles and success, both on and off the pitch.
