A commercial update from behind the scenes since the season has begun here at the Wham Stadium
The commercial team, led by myself Daniel Bowerbank, with support from Sophie Jones, is mirroring the great start to the new season by the team with more and more businesses showing an interest to join the Stanley #Redvolution.
We have already encountered a memorable Carabao Cup win against fellow Lancashire team Preston North End before losing to the Premier League's West Bromwich Albion in Round 2. The club gained additional media interest which continues to help us showcase the club both commercially and on the field of play.
There is plenty to do throughout the season from growing our hospitality and ground catering sales to increasing the club sponsors and partners and importantly, ensuring they receive our full support in promoting their businesses at every possible opportunity throughout the league and cup campaign.
It's a great way for fans and businesses to work together to create a great relationship with several sponsors offering discounts and initiatives for Accrington Stanley Supporters and its partners.
Our players shirt sponsorships have again been a great success this season with all contracted players sponsored. We still have sponsorship opportunities for several of the players on loan from other clubs - Contact the commercial team for details.
Following our #Target1000 over the summer here at the Wham, we have managed to secure 81% of our target. I can also confirm that we have now signed off the deal for fans and businesses to offer season tickets on a pay monthly plan for the current season and beyond which is a great coupe for the club. More details to be released in the next few weeks.
