BURTON Albion’s 2023/24 home kit will again feature the names of two leading local companies who have shown long-term support to the Brewers.
The classic yellow kit has been given a fresh new look for the new season and will be emblazoned with the logos of sponsors Prestec UK and Russell Roof Tiles.
The Prestec name has been on the front of the Brewers first team shirts since the 2018/19 season and that will now continue for a sixth year.
The company’s ethos makes it a natural partner for Burton Albion and Prestec also supports the club’s Academy and Community Trust.
Russell Roof Tiles is another long-standing partner of the club and is another company that shares the club’s values and commitment to supporting the community.
Russell Roof Tiles partnership with the club over the years has included sponsoring the East Stand and Academy teams and holding its own fund-raising charity quiz at the Pirelli Stadium.
Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said: “We greatly value our partnership with both Prestec and Russell Roof Tiles and we are proud to see the names of these very successful community-minded companies on our first team shirts.
“We are delighted that both companies are continuing their shirt sponsorship for the 2023/24 season, and we are excited by the new design from our long-standing kit partners TAG, which we are sure our fans are going to enjoy wearing.”
The black away kit that has proved to be immensely popular with supporters will continue for a second season and will also have the Prestec logo on the front and Russell Roof Tiles logo on the back again for the 2023/24 season.
Based in Barton-under-Needwood, Prestec UK is an expert contractor in construction, structural repair and refurbishment.
David and Alyson Hewlett, of Prestec, said: “The privileged feeling that was there on our first sponsorship season is as special now as it was then. Great club, great people, plus award winning Community Trust, what more can you ask, here’s to a successful 2023/24 season!”
