PPS steps up its support of FC Halifax Town

Posted on

The World Cup may be over, but back home football is about to start a new season – and PPS will be there to help kick things off.

As a company, we always try to be on the ball and support other local organisations, whether business, charity or leisure.

Following many years of sponsoring FC Halifax Town, we’ve decided to pitch in at a higher level this season, continuing our support as a Senior Club Partner.

The club has recently taken the major step of becoming a full-time football club again, which has made it even more important to secure vital sponsorship from businesses such as PPS.

As a Senior Club Partner, we will see the PPS logo on the front of the first away shirt and the back of the second away shirt.

Ben Bottomley, Commercial Manager at FC Halifax Town, said: “PPS plays a vital role in supporting the club and we are really pleased to see the company reach this level of sponsorship. It’s a crucial time for the club and we very much appreciate the support.”

Gary Whitaker, Managing Director of PPS, said: “We have been supporting the club for some years now and we are pleased to be able to step up our sponsorship contribution at an exciting time in the club’s history. We wish the teams every success in the coming season.”
