Runcorn Town FC score new kit thanks to merseyflow sponsorship deal


Local football team Runcorn Town FC will mark the start of the upcoming season by striking a deal with the Mersey Gateway and Silver Jubilee Bridge operator merseyflow.

This is the first time merseyflow has sponsored the Division One North Club which is aiming for a return to the North West Counties Premier Division.

With the community at its heart, the club also gives younger members of the wider community the chance to play for their youth team, which plays in the North West Youth Alliance, and their under 12s team.

Runcorn Town FC has agreed to a two-year brand sponsorship deal with merseyflow in a boost for the club ahead of the new 2023/24 season. The sponsorship will mean that merseyflow will be the first team's back of shirt sponsor until the end of the 2024-25 season.

Neil Conway, Chief Executive of merseyflow, said: “We’re proud to sponsor our local football club Runcorn Town FC. We wanted to show our support for the work they do, so we’re delighted to be signing up for two seasons of sponsorship.

“We know the sponsorship money will go into helping the club at such a vital time. We’re hopeful for the season ahead and can’t wait to see the team back on the field.”

Alan Bennett, Commercial Director of Runcorn Town FC, said: “We would like to thank merseyflow who are our new sponsors this summer. We look forward to working with them over the next two years. Football clubs like ours just could not survive without support from sponsors, so we really appreciate the commitment."
