Wrexham shirt sponsors, Leasedirect Finance, have renewed their commitment to the club, even though the Dragons have been relegated from the Football League.
Wrexham is delighted to announce the extension of their existing shirt sponsorship deal with Leasedirect Finance Ltd, the North Wales based commercial finance firm. They have agreed to extend their sponsorship arrangements with Wrexham FC beyond the existing contract that already takes them up to the end of next season (2008/09), for a further two years into 2009/10 and 2010/11.
This is a recording breaking deal for the club and makes their sponsorship worth over GBP 1/4m. Leasedirect will continue to offer a range of incentives over and above the standard terms of the sponsorship arrangement (as has been the case in previous seasons), although to help with securing the long term investment in youth, all incentives earned will be directed exclusively for use by the club's Centre of Excellence.
Paul Buchanan, Leasedirect's Managing Director said: "The partnership over the past two seasons with Wrexham has been highly enjoyable and we are confident that the club will bounce straight back into the Football League, and see no reason why we shouldn't continue to back Wrexham towards this goal. "I also think it is important for Leasedirect to set an example to the rest of the business community in North Wales that continuing to back Wrexham, the only major football club in the locality, is important for the area as a whole, as the club is a focal point for the passions of a great number of people."
Speaking at the launch of the deal, Wrexham FC's Chief Executive Anthony Fairclough said: "Once again I have been overwhelmed by the outcome of negotiations with Leasedirect.
"They have proved themselves to be an innovative sponsor in the past and once again have shown their true commitment to the long term future of this football club.
"I hope that other businesses in the area will follow suit and continue to back the club, as we all look to give Brian Little the best possible platform for gaining success as quickly as possible."
