New away shirt to bear logo of main sponsor
Anvil Hire Ltd have continued their sponsorship of Burton Albion’s first-team shirts into a second season.
Anvil Hire Managing Director Rob Brown said “We are pleased to be in a position to continue being the Main Sponsor for Burton Albion Football Club.
“Anvil Hire Limited is a Burton based Plant Hire business operating nationally and we consider the business generated locally through our sponsorship to be extremely valuable and would like to see continual growth through supporters recognising our support for local sport and the community.
“We were proud to see our company name on the shirts at the Wembley Play-off Final and are confident that with Gary Rowett's leadership and his supporting staff, the Brewers have a great opportunity to be fighting for a place for automatic promotion this coming season.
Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said “We’re delighted that Anvil Hire’s Managing Director Rob Brown, who is also a Burton Albion Director, has agreed to continue with the first-team shirt sponsorship. We thank Rob for his marvellous support, which is now in its eighth year.
“We look forward to another exciting season following on from the last two years, reaching the semi-final play-offs and then recently playing in the League Two play-off final, with a memorable visit to Wembley Stadium.
Gary Rowett has strengthened his squad with some impressive signings ahead of the new campaign.”
Replacing the sky blue change strip of the last two seasons, Gary Rowett’s team will be on the road in grey and white stripes as they battle for promotion from Sky Bet League 2.
The kit is manufactured by local supplier TAG and is completed with white shorts and socks, to go alongside a home kit unchanged from last season.
It’s the first time that the Brewers have donned grey and white stripes, and the smart design of the shirts mean they can be used as leisurewear as well as when you’re backing the Brewers at matches.
The new kit will be available from the Club Shop at the Pirelli Stadium, priced from £22.50 for juniors, and adult sized shirts are £39.99, a price freeze for the third year in a row.
