Summer update from behind the scenes here at the Wham Stadium
Following the successful season which ended with promotion to EFL Sky Bet League One for the first time in the club's history since reformation back in 1968, the work for the new season started following the final home game to Lincoln City.
There is plenty ongoing behind-the-scenes for the new season with the commencement of the new Whinney Hill family stand due to be finished before the turn of the year.
Over the past few weeks we have been reflecting on what has worked well throughout the season and how we can continue to improve season upon season.
We are looking forward to our 13th season in the English Football League.
Now where to begin!
The new away kit will be revealed this Friday 15th June at 8am, with both the home kit and away kit to pre-order from 9am, with delivery due to be in-store for Friday 27th July due to lead times. We are pleased to announce that the home kit will remain the same for the 2018/19 season as we look to listen to feedback from fans throughout the season. You can personalise your kit with our new ‘League 2 Champions 2017/18' badges.
We announced our back of shirt sponsors Guide Security have agreed a contract extension for another three seasons taking us through to the 2021-2022 season.
Our short sponsors Fagan & Whalley have committed for what will be their third season supporting the club.
Our training kit sponsors Albert Harrisons & Co will also be emblazoned across the front of the first team training range. Wham will also feature as the club's principal partner on the front of shirt and stadium naming rights for the next three seasons.
Recently we announced that our Main Stand would be renamed as the HML Recycling Jack Barrett Stand for the next three seasons. As a community club we are pleased to add yet another local business to our ever-growing database.
On the 28th June we will also be announcing our brand new Family Stand sponsor for the current Whinney Hill Stand redevelopment.
Our 2018/19 #teamstanley season ticket campaign has smashed through the 1,000 barrier for the first time in the club's history and we are continuing to work behind-the-scenes to push on and promote the superb offering for next season. Our season tickets are also available on finance and you can apply for yours online today.
Following the developments, it has enabled us to add additional sponsors around the perimeter of the superb pitch, which has been relayed at the Wham Stadium, with three non-TV facing (£600vat) boards and five TV facing (£1,200vat) boards. We also have the opportunity to offer crowd facing (£350vat) boards to businesses within all sides of the ground.
You can sponsor your favourite player, priced at £175 inc. vat for either home or away shirt or both home and away for a great price of £299 inc vat. For full package details click here.
We now also have the ‘Big Screen‘ which has had a successful first season with plenty of businesses taking up the opportunity to showcase their brand at the Wham.
With prices starting from just £25 for any ‘basic' message (birthdays, weddings, announcements etc.), we are now in a position to offer businesses and organisations the opportunity to utilise the screen for advertising. Pre-match, half-time and post-match action sponsorships are now available, as is in-match action (goals, corners, offsides, yellow/red cards, etc…)Fixture launch date is here soon, only 10 days away (Wednesday 21st June), and we cannot wait to continue planning our matchday experiences within the hospitality suite at the Wham Stadium. With over 1,100 hospitality guests enjoying our matchday experience throughout the season we are already looking forward to next season. We have had quite a large number of enquires for the high-profile games for next season which is great for the club.
