With the news over the weekend that our principal sponsorship with betting firm W88 would come to a natural end following the conclusion of the 2019/20 campaign and after only 12 months, we can now welcome non-betting firm Cazoo to the club for the 2020/21 season (dare we say Premier League?).

Cazoo (it’s new to me and probably to most of you) are an online car retailer and digital business and given they aren’t betting related, they will feature on the front of shirts for all age groups (kiddies included), as well as our Women’s side as they embark on an inaugural 12 months in the Women’s Super League following their successful promotion bid this year.
The length of the deal isn’t stated, it’s simply phrased as a ‘multi-year’ partnership.

The full details can be found on the Official Site.
The selling point here is youth kits carrying the sponsor for the first time in quite a few years, but making the switch away from betting companies has gone over well with most fans it seems.
Announce free car to fans

Like many on here, I am very pleased that you have decided to ditch gambling firms. Please make the switch permanent! Might be tempted to buy a short next season whatever league we are in!! Never would with gambling on it.
