AFC Bluebirds, currently sponsored by Conservative Home, have secured further support with additional sponsorship from Lord Ashcroft Polls for the 2013/14 season, after winning their final game of 2013.
The announcement comes after the team won their fifth successive game in the Regents Park Championship, which sees them two points off top spot. The Bluebirds go into the league’s winter break sitting in third place, after a hat trick from Will McCann and a goal from Hugo Sutherland secured a 4-1 victory.
The Bluebirds wore their new away kit (pictured right with Lord Ashcroft and Club Captain, Hudson Roe) in their latest victory. The shirt will feature in future away fixtures and friendly matches against various political football teams and lobbying companies.
The kit and sponsorship are in addition to support the team receives from Conservative Home, which is now in its second successive season.
On announcing the new sponsorship deal, Lord Ashcroft said:
“I am delighted that Lord Ashcroft Polls has found such a suitable football team with which to link up. I have been looking to sponsor a Westminster-based soccer team for a while and the Bluebirds have presented the perfect opportunity.“Bluebirds’ results have been going from strength to strength this season, and I look forward to a long and happy association between Lord Ashcroft Polls and the team.”
Hudson Roe, AFC Bluebirds Captain said:
“We’re really fortunate to be supported by Lord Ashcroft this season, in addition to our long-term deal with Con Home. In our first game wearing the kit we won and secured our fifth straight win, which I put down entirely to Lord Ashcroft Polls’ logo being on our chest.
We’re looking forward to welcoming our new sponsor to watch one of our matches soon.”
“AFC Bluebirds are a football club made up of players from across Westminster. The team are proud to be sponsored by Conservative Home and Lord Ashcroft Polls”
