Air Ambulance charity on front of shirts thanks to Magical Vegas
Magical Vegas have once again agreed to cover the costs to allow the name of the Club’s charity partner to appear on the front of Town’s junior kit.
The Club are into the second year of a three-and-a-half-year sponsorship deal with Daub Alderney Ltd, part of the Stride Gaming group, that sees the Magical Vegas brand on the front of all Town’s first-team shirts.
However EFL regulations prevent the use of sponsorship associated with gambling on the front of any junior replica shirt so last season Magical Vegas paid the substantial costs to have the logo of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices [EACH] printed on the thousands of junior shirts.
The Club announced yesterday that East Anglian Air Ambulance will have their logo on the back of the first-team shirts for next season and with Magical Vegas’ help, that logo will now also appear on the front of the junior shirts.
“It’s great exposure for the East Anglian Air Ambulance to have our name on the back of the Ipswich Town first-team shirts for next season and also on the front of the junior shirts and we’d like to thank Magical Vegas for their kind gesture,” said EAAA chief executive Patrick Peal.
Konstantinos Veletas, spokesperson for the Stride Gaming group, added: “We were more than happy to cover the costs to see the name of such a fantastic charity in the East Anglian Air Ambulance recognised on the front of Ipswich Town’s junior shirts.”
