Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has extended its long established shirt sponsorship partnership with Exeter City Football Club for a 12th consecutive year, that - on the eve of the League Two Club flying off to Brazil for a re-play of its historic Centenary match - itself is close to making history as one of the longest standing corporate sponsorship for a current Football League Club.
The deal highlights further the airline’s commitment to support and contribute to the communities which its serves and its underlying loyalty to Exeter City and its fans.
Chief Executive of Exeter City FC, Guy Wolfenden, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have the backing of Flybe again this season. This is now one of the longest standing corporate sponsorship for a current Football League Club.”
Exeter City says it is hoping to build on its successful campaign that during the last game of the season saw 10 ‘home grown’ players in the squad.
He continues: “Exeter City has been focusing on developing youngsters from the community and nurturing them to become great footballers. Last season saw many of these players making their debut for the First Team and we are excited to see many others coming through the Academy this year.
“I would like to thank Flybe for its continued support - we couldn’t compete at this level or offer the Training Academy that we have without the backing of corporate partners like Flybe.”
