Town Announce New Shirt Sponsor
Thursday, 11th Jan 2018 12:16
Town have announced a new three-and-a-half-year sponsorship deal which will see the name Magical Vegas emblazoned across the Blues’ first-team shirts.
Magical Vegas is an online gaming operator, a brand of Daub Alderney Ltd, which is part of the Stride Gaming group. The deal, worth up to £2 million in the Championship but potentially more in the Premier League, runs to the end of 2020/21 season.
The name will also see the Magical Vegas logo replace the Marcus Evans name on the Blues’ red away shirt, but not the home kit, for the remainder of this season.
The club say that fans who have bought an adult away shirt for this season can have the Magical Vegas logo overprinted for free at Planet Blue, although not immediately. Full details will be released soon.
Children’s sizes will continue to carry the Marcus Evans logo for the remainder of the campaign but due to FA guidelines the Magical Vegas name won’t appear on next season’s junior shirts.
“A lot of hard work has taken place on both sides and it’s the start of an exciting new partnership,” Town MD Ian Milne told the club website.
Town’s director of sales, Rosie Richardson, added: “We’ve been working on this agreement since the autumn and we are all delighted it has come to fruition.
“Magical Vegas is an exciting brand and we look forward to a new era of shirt sponsor at Ipswich Town Football Club.”
Konstantinos Veletas, spokesperson for the Stride Gaming group, continued: “We are delighted to be working alongside such a prestigious football club as Ipswich Town.
“It’s a thrilling new venture for us and we are looking forward to a very successful partnership over the next three and a half years.”
Magical Vegas is an online casino site offering a large selection of casino games, ranging from online slots and live casino to scratch cards and arcade games while also offering an extensive selection of exclusive games.

Advertising gambling!??!?! Yuck. Embarrassed to be a town fan today, and in no way would I ever consider buying a town top with a bookies logo plastered across it.
I thought we were better than that......

Well that looks crap

Dear oh dear oh dear! Can things get any more embarrassing?
|JCTractorboy added 12:21 - Jan 11|
That looks absolutely horrendous...i can't believe i'm saying this but even marcus evans in font size 1000 looks better than this
|peteswindon added 12:23 - Jan 11|
We need some magic that is for sure
|JCTractorboy added 12:24 - Jan 11|
Also is an online casino really "an exciting brand"... very debatable

Embarrassing on several levels.

Looks so classy.
To think we once had pioneer.

I've spent months laughing at the horrible Leo Vegas logo plastered on Norwich's shirts.
I'm going to have to delete some comments now. Their logo looks superb compared to this monstrosity.

People moaning who cares what the sponsor is it's the badge/crest on it that I care about
|hadleighboyblue added 12:27 - Jan 11|
How cheap looking is that , what next ....the Poundland stadium
|guentchev added 12:28 - Jan 11|
Thought this was a joke when I first read it....
|NoCanariesAllowed added 12:28 - Jan 11|
Cripes. That's a "We're going to be on the League One highlights soon" shirt sponsor if ever I saw one. Much as Marcus Evans was never a great name for us to carry around on our shirts, at least it wasn't for a gaming brand.
Way to put people off shirts as well as season tickets, lads. I can see I won't be buying either for a while.

Good grief that's shocking. Very few people are going to buy a new shirt in my opinion and it won't be allowed on kid's shirts because its gambling. This is embarrassing....
|Cakeman added 12:30 - Jan 11|
Not happy at all about this.
Absolute disgrace that the club I once knew and was proud of has sunk this low to promote gambling!
|linhdi added 12:31 - Jan 11|
I was hoping it was a Suffolk Gazette spoof. Oh dear!
|BigBluBen added 12:32 - Jan 11|
This is horrible!
PLEASE can someone from Pioneer with a spare couple of million gazump this monstrosity.
|KiwiBlue2 added 12:33 - Jan 11|
Perhaps our Sgt Schultz was envisaging the club having a red hot streak on the gaming machines to obtain the funds for the promised spending in the January window.

Cringingly embarrassing on several levels. All we need now is for Portman Road to be rebranded the QuickQuid stadium and my life will be complete :-(
