New sponsor for next season as three-year partnership concludes
Ipswich Town will have a new name on the front of the first-team shirts for next season, with the current sponsorship deal with The Rank Group Plc finishing at the end of this campaign.
The Club teamed up with Rank in January 2018 in a three-and-a-half-year agreement that saw Magical Vegas appear on the shirts of the first-team for two years before the company donated the sponsorship to the charity, Carers Trust, for the 2020/21 campaign.
Rank, who own the Magical Vegas brand, has worked closely with Carers Trust for the last seven years and supported many of their initiatives in the local community, with 4500 unpaid carers based in the Suffolk area.
“It has been fantastic to have been involved with Ipswich Town over the last three years as the Club’s shirt sponsor,” said James Boord, Chief Marketing Officer for Rank.
“It has been especially satisfying for us to have had the opportunity to spotlight the incredible work Carers Trust do, both locally and nationally.
"We wish the Club the very best of fortune for the future in what is sure to be an exciting time under the new owners and look to work with them on other initiatives.”
Town’s director of sales, Rosie Richardson, added: “We have enjoyed a very good working relationship with Rank and it was a fantastic gesture by them to gift the sponsorship to Carers Trust this season.
“It was very evident that our supporters - as well as the Club - appreciated that decision and it seemed very appropriate given the challenges unpaid carers and health workers in particular have faced through the pandemic.”
