It will mean that from the start of the upcoming season the name of Berry Telecom will be on the front of the home shirt and at the heart of local football. Berry will also retain its prominent advertising board that bisects the family stand, as well as becoming the sponsors of the Main Stand.
The partnership brings together one of the fastest-growing telecoms companies in the UK and a football club with great heritage and aspirations.
Berry Telecom have won Sales Team of the Year for the past two years at the UK Comms Dealer Awards and this year won Best Company To Work For.
Berry co-owner Simon Langford spoke of his delight at the deal.
“This is a knockout combination. Berry and Salisbury FC are very like-minded and both have huge plans for the future,” he said.
“We here at Berry are hugely proud to be Salisbury FC's main club sponsor from the start of 2017-2018 season.”
Added Simon: “We feel this is a great pairing, not only because our head office is five minutes away from the Ray Mac Stadium, but because we feel that we can really help push the club forward and inevitably back up the leagues to where the club belong.”
Jeremy Harwood, Salisbury FC Director, commented:
“We are happy that following their initial interest in the club last season, Berry Telecom have elected to give us more support for the future.”
“It is actions like this from companies like Berry sponsoring the club which enable us to offer football through the community to all ages, as well as helping the first team to move to the next level.”
