U's announce shirt sponsorship extension with Mick George Ltd.

CAMBRIDGE United Football Club are delighted to announce that Mick George Ltd. will become the sole official playing kit sponsor for the Club for the next three seasons until July 2018.

From the beginning of the 2015/16 season all United players, within the first team and across all squads from Under 9’s through to Under 21’s, will be wearing the Mick George logo on their home, away and third shirts.

Mick George first became the U’s home shirt sponsors in 2013, and together with Cambridge United have forged a superb relationship, with representatives of the company present at every U’s home game along with the introduction of the centre-circle banner and the London Cheerleaders.   The Club have also been pleased to welcome Mick George Ltd. to the R Costings Abbey Stadium as match sponsors a number of times this season, including the FA Cup fourth round fixture with Manchester United.

Liz Slack, Business Development Manager said: “Cambridge United Football Club are proud to have Mick George Limited as one of our major sponsors.  Mick George Limited is the leading skip hire and waste management firm in East Anglia and the East Midlands and suppliers to the UK construction industry, yet it remains focused on the serving and supporting the community in which it operates. This new sponsorship deal will see the Mick George logo now feature on all players’ shirts from the First Team right down to the Under 9’s in our academy. Their support for Cambridge United over the years has extended beyond the financial sponsorship of our kit, as they share the same belief that it is vital to help the communities we work in and find ways to be involved in any way they can, actively supporting the work of our Cambridge United Community Trust.“

Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George said:  “Mick George prides itself on being a local business, employing local people and as a Company, we look to champion the local communities in which we live and work. Our continued support for Cambridge United, from its youngest players in their academy to the first team squad, is something we genuinely believe makes a positive and valuable contribution. We have enjoyed our journey with Cambridge United so far, both as sponsors, commercial partners and as football fans. After a period of time in the football wilderness the club is now making great strides in developing a legacy for the city of Cambridge both on and off the pitch which we are proud to play a part. It has been a privilege to be part of the club’s success to date and we are delighted to be continuing our relationship for another 3 years as the club continues its journey."

Concluding, U’s Chief Executive, Jez George, said:  "This is the biggest shirt sponsorship deal in the club's history and we are extremely proud to continue such a close association with Mick George Limited.  It's a true partnership; we share similar values and a real desire to play a central role within our community.  We look forward to growing our relationship still further in the next three years and beyond."
