BLACKBURN Rovers have announced a two-year sponsorship deal for the Riverside Stand at Ewood Park with Regulatory Finance Solutions (RFS).
A management consultancy business who provide regulatory expertise for the financial services industry, RFS work closely with the UK’s major banks, life and insurance companies.
RFS Chief Executive Officer, John Turner, is a lifelong Rovers fan, who sees this as an ideal opportunity to return to his roots and mix business and pleasure, whilst expanding the RFS brand and footprint in the North West. Turner said: “I used to sit in the old Riverside Stand as a schoolboy and have been a season ticket holder over the years before and after the new Riverside Stand was developed.
“Supporting Rovers is a real passion of mine and I’m delighted to sponsor my hometown team.”
Greg Coar, Head of Commercial and Marketing at Rovers, said: “When you speak to John, you can hear the passion for the club loud and clear. It’s fantastic that he sees a commercial benefit for his company is aligning RFS with Rovers and, as a staunch fan, he is justifiably proud to have such a visible presence at Ewood Park.”
Paul Agnew, Operations Director at Rovers, added: “It is very encouraging for us to secure this stand sponsorship with RFS, particularly as the man at the helm has such strong Rovers connections. We are fighting hard in a trying economic climate to bring new business to Ewood Park and this new contract provides a clear indication that we are moving in the right direction.”
