New short sponsor for U's.
Following the news that Weston Homes will be the main shirt sponsor for the next three years, the Commercial team at the U’s have secured Bidvest as the club’s short sponsor for the upcoming campaign.
Colchester United will be backed by Bidvest Foodservice during the 2015/16 season.
It will be the first time since the 2007/8 season that the U’s will carry a Short Sponsor on their kit, with Bidvest’s logo adorning the back of the players’ shorts in every game home and away.
Michelle Tricker, Head Of Sales at Colchester United, said: "I am delighted that the Bidvest logo will appear on our team shorts and cement our partnership for the coming season.
"Karl Smith, our Head of Catering, has been working with Bryon, Lee and the team from Bidvest over for the past three years to provide great quality products for us to serve on matchdays and at our events throughout the year.
"Bidvest have been regular guests with us on matchdays and will be sponsoring at least three games over the season so we look forward to seeing much more of them over the coming months.
"Bidvest are the latest company to back us as we go into the new season, we have been overwhelmed by the amount of support we have received from local and national businesses since the end of the season. We aren’t done yet though, we look forward to finalising and announcing more sponsorship deals in the near future."
Bryon Keen from Bidvest Foodservice added: "We are really pleased to further strengthen our links and support with the club. Colchester United share our passion for food and service, which generates a great hospitality partnership."
