Southampton Football Club is delighted to announce that Virgin Media has extended its commitment to the club and, from the 2017/18 season, the company’s logo will appear on the sleeves – as well as the front – of the team's home, away and goalkeeper shirts.
Virgin Media became Saints’ Main Club Sponsor in 2016, and this additional deal serves to strengthen the bond between the two organisations.
Southampton Football Club’s Commercial Director, David Thomas, said: “We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Virgin Media over the past 12 months and we are delighted that they have opted to become our new shirt sleeve sponsors.
“This agreement is testament to the partnership that has been forged by the two organisations, and we look forward to continuing our work together this season."
Lloyd Page, Director of Brand for Virgin Media, said: “Our people take great pride in seeing the Virgin Media brand on the Southampton FC shirt, so we are thrilled to further demonstrate our support of this fantastic football club in this way.
"As a key strategic partner, we look forward to the new season together, and being at the heart of the drama and passion that surrounds our national game.”
The Virgin Media sleeve badges will be available in the Stadium store and Westquay store when purchasing Premier League badges. Fans may choose either two Premier League badges or one Premier League badge and a Virgin Media logo for the same price of £6 (badges only), or £18 when purchased with a name and number.
If a Virgin Media logo is preferred, please ensure this is requested at the point of ordering. Unfortunately, the Virgin Media logo cannot be selected online. Please contact 0845 688 9433 for further assistance.
