Swindon Town Football Club players show support for redheadPR sponsorship
Swindon Town players, James Collins and Andy Williams showed their support for redheadPR’s sponsorship of the press box at The County Ground, as they were photographed with Founder and Managing Director of redheadPR, Sara Tye.
The press box at The County Ground has been revamped with the distinctive branding of redheadPR, the dynamic independent public relations consultancy.
redheadPR’s sponsorship of Swindon Town Football Club’s press box is now in full view. redheadPR feel particularly privileged, as they are the first company to sport their colours on the press box for quite some time.
The press box displays the striking design of redheadPR's unmistakable branding, showcasing with their iconic hallmark redheadPR and their expertise of keeping ahead of the curve in business and communications as well as a stamp to mark celebrating their ten prosperous years in business.
Sara Tye, Founder and Managing Director of redheadPR said: “It was great for James and Andy to help celebrate the sponsorship of the press box after so many years and I'm delighted to be supporting Swindon Town Football Club and these players.”
Collins signed for Swindon in the summer joining from Shrewsbury Town. Last season he helped the Shrews clinch promotion to League One, finishing second behind eventual champions Swindon.
Williams, one of Paolo Di Canio’s first signings for the 2012/13 season. The striker joined Town in the summer after an impressive campaign in front of goal with Yeovil Town in 2011/12.
redheadPR’s visionary design presents the public relations consultancy with a brilliant opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to supporting the local League One football club.
Without doubt Swindon Town Football Club, now under the management of Paolo Di Canio, has progressed beyond expectations from their position two years ago and now sits third in the league table. redheadPR is extremely proud to sponsor the team in a period of such success.
On Tuesday 26th February 2013, redheadPR is sponsoring the match ball to compliment with redheadPR’s sponsorship of the press box. Before kickoff, guests will enjoy a match preview with former STFC Player and Hall of Fame Inductee, Phil King. After the match, the Man of the Match will be announced and he will then present a signed, commemorative STFC football.
