THE company logo of local roof tile manufacturer Russell Roof Tiles will be seen on the back of Burton Albion first team shirts for a third consecutive season.
Russell Roof Tiles has been a long-standing partner of the club and has sponsored the East Stand and Academy teams, has hosted its charity quiz at the Pirelli Stadium and taken part in the Corporate Five-a-side tournament at the ground.
Now the firm will continue to have its name on the back of both the home and away shirts for the 2022/23 season.
Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said: “We have a great relationship with Andrew Hayward, Managing Director, and everyone at Russell Roof Tiles, who are all big supporters of the club and all of our community activities.
“We have long-term relationships with many of our sponsors and Russell Roof Tiles has been an important part of that, including continuing to support us through the pandemic when games were played behind closed doors.
“Football is a powerful tool for making a difference in the community and sponsors like Russell Roof Tiles know they are supporting all that we do, as well as the team that goes out onto the Pirelli Stadium pitch on a Saturday afternoon.
“I want to thank Andrew and his team for their continued support and we look forward to another successful year together.”
