Wolverhampton Wanderers sign sleeve sponsorship deal

Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed a sponsorship deal, with Aeroset to become the official sleeve sponsor of the club.

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aeroset have signed a sponsorship deal, with the aerospace parts and services provider to become the official sleeve sponsor of the club.

Aeroset branding will appear on LED advertising boards at Molineux Stadium, the Wanderers’ home ground as well as on Wolves’ online platforms and the 2020/21 season kit.

Aeroset are also the main sponsor of Argentina Primera Division club Racing Club de Avellaneda.

“We are thrilled to partner with Aeroset ahead of another exciting season of Premier League football,” Wolves’ executive chairman Jeff Shi said in a statement.

“As with Wolves, Aeroset is a progressive brand with strong links to the UK, United States and Portugal, and we believe they are an ideal firm to join the pack as one of our principal partners.

“We very much look forward to working with them throughout what we hope will be another memorable campaign at Molineux.”

The deal marks the first time that a company from the aerospace industry has been a sponsor of an English Premier League club.

“In the past six months we have been approached by football clubs from all around the globe; Argentina, Brazil, Chile, England, Ireland and the USA,” Aeroset CEO Mariano Longo said regarding the deal.

“One of these team caught our attention immediately – Wolverhampton Wanderers. Passion and courage are Aeroset’s core values and when I translate that into the Premier League, I can only think in one team – Wolves.

“We are absolutely delighted to make our debut in the best league in the world, partnering with such an iconic team and we really hope we can contribute into this path, leading to the glory that this club and their faithful fans deserve.”

The Wolverhampton Wanderers also agreed to a two-year sponsorship deal with online trading platform Samtrade FX last week – the brokerage company becomes the club’s official forex and online trading partner.

Samtrade FX’s branding will appear on the club’s press conference backdrop, Wolves’ online platforms as well as on LED advertising boards at Molineux Stadium.

Wolverhampton won their first game of the 2020/21 EPL season defeating Sheffield United 2-0.

Sydney FC members to pick and choose membership packs in 2021/22

Sydney FC has introduced an Aussie-first membership platform, with members to gain more control over the customisation of their membership packs.

Sydney FC has introduced an Australian-first membership platform, with members to gain more control over the customisation of their membership packs.

The club and its membership products provider, TPF Sports, will greatly increase member satisfaction and reduce environmental impact. Sydney FC members who sign up for the 2021/22 season will have credits put onto their accounts, allowing them to choose from a variety of Membership card designs and, depending on their package, a variety of personalised items.

Each merchandising item may be customised with different colours and names, allowing for unique bundles based on age, gender, product choice, artwork style, personalisation, years of tender, and a variety of other factors.

Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend hailed the announcement as a big step forward for how the club engages with its members.

“Our new eMber+ platform is a huge step forward and once again Sydney FC is proud to be leading the way in Member engagement,” he said via a club statement,” he said.

“Gone are the days of receiving the same standard Membership pack as everyone else.

“Now you can tailor your package to suit your preferences and how you wish to support the Sky Blues.

“There’s a fantastic range of customisable merchandise available and I know I’m looking forward to my delivery in the coming weeks.”

TPF Sports Director Craig Dyer explains the move is a worldwide first and one of the benefits of the move would be the reduced environmental impact of membership packs, thanks largely in part to the fact that members will only receive merchandise they actually want.

“There are iterations of loyalty and rewards platforms globally,” he said.

“But to the best of our knowledge from 18 to 20 months of development and research, we believe this is the first-ever platform of its kind and certainly the first for sport and membership-based programs.

“Our vision in developing the platform is to revolutionise the long-standing pre-determined assignment of resources to Members by assigning credit. This allows them to redeem merchandise and entitlements they deem relevant to them.

“This platform also has a strong environmental slant, as we are only supplying merchandise and delivering this merchandise to Members who want to redeem it.

“Additionally, almost every product is on-demand, meaning we receive Members’ selection based on products and artwork, print them with selected artwork and personalisation, pick, pack and fulfil directly to the Members door.”
