Blackburn Rovers shirt deal extended
10:28am Friday 18th January 2013 in Football
BLACKBURN Rovers have extended their commercial partnership with PROBIZ Excellence Ltd.
PROBIZ, which has more than 400 accountancy offices, had already committed to stay as main shirt sponsor until the end of this month, but have now agreed to continue on the front of the famous blue-and-white halves until the end of the season.
PROBIZ founder Feisal Nahaboo, who was born in Blackburn, said: “There is a mixture of publicity facing the club but that has never put me off supporting a club that will eventually stabilise and show its true worth and enter the Premier League once again.
“I’d like to support the club over the forthcoming years and look forward to building a relationship with both the fans and management team. The good times are not far off and I believe the club can make the play-offs this year. I wish Michael Appleton every success in steering this club back to the top flight.”
Greg Coar, Rovers’ head of commercial and marketing said: “This is great news for the club. It’s fantastic that PROBIZ have enjoyed the initial stages of our relationship to the extent that they are keen to further cement their support.”
