U's extend partnership with Clacton Factory Outlet.
Colchester United have teamed up with Clacton Factory Outlet to extend their sponsorship of U's fluffy favourite Eddie the Eagle.
Eddie has become one of the U's most recognisable faces over recent years, spreading the word on the club and its community programme across the local area.
And the U's popular mascot will again carry the name of Clacton Factory Outlet in the 2016/17 season after they agreed to extend their sponsorship for another season.
Eddie has been backed by Clacton Factory Outlet for a number of years now, in one of the club's longest standing commercial partnerships.
"Eddie is an important character loved by our customers so it is only fitting hat we support him and ensure he comes to visit in between his busy schedule of games and supporting Football in the Community," Leanne Woodrow from Clacton Factory Outlet said.

Eddie is a regular at all U's home games and is often out and about at the more than 60 schools that work with the club's Football in the Community programme.
Fresh from a summer makeover, he will be again representing the club across the area in the coming months.
"We are delighted that Clacton Factory Outlet have again sponsored Eddie's shirt," U's Head of Sales Michelle Tricker said.
"We are looking forward to taking him to visit the stores at the Outlet in the coming months and Eddie will be taking Clacton Factory Outlet's name far and wide between now and the end of the season."
