Academy to benefit as well as leading technical education company agree deal until 2022
Town have agreed a deal with CNet Training that will see the Bury St Edmunds based company take up sponsorship of Blues’ U23s until the summer of 2022.
An award-winning technical education company, CNet Training will feature on the front of the U23 shirts, as well as becoming Academy partners.
“We are delighted to be working with CNet Training over the next three years,” said the Club’s director of sales, Rosie Richardson.
“Not only will they feature on the front of the U23s’ team shirts, CNet will have branding located around the stadium and will also feature on the Club’s Honesty Flags, a new initiative where we will supply children in the Family Enclosure with flags to wave to support the team at home games.”
Andrews Stevens, CEO of CNet, added: “CNet Training has a long association with local football and this is an extension to our commitment to supporting the game.
“We enjoy being involved with the Club and the Academy, they really do support their players as they progress and blossom into future stars. But, this is not just about company branding for CNet, we are keen to give back to the community so we’re scoping plans to work closer with the Academy to allow players to also learn about the digital infrastructure sector and further expand their skills into network cable installation, a sector that has many career opportunities and a skills shortage.
“With more new knowledge and skills under an Academy scholar’s belt, it will allow them more choices for their future career as and when they may need it.”
