Town Confirm Change of Sponsor
Tuesday, 27th Apr 2021 10:35
Town have confirmed that they will have a new shirt sponsor next season with their three-and-a-half-year partnership with the Rank Group PLC up at the end of this campaign.
The current deal, which was agreed in January 2018 and worth up to £2 million, saw the Magical Vegas name appear on shirts for two seasons with the space donated to the charity the Carers Trust for 2020/21.
“It has been fantastic to have been involved with Ipswich Town over the last three years as the club’s shirt sponsor,” James Boord, chief marketing officer for Rank, told the club site.
“It has been especially satisfying for us to have had the opportunity to spotlight the incredible work Carers Trust do, both locally and nationally.
“We wish the club the very best of fortune for the future in what is sure to be an exciting time under the new owners and look to work with them on other initiatives.”
Town’s director of sales Rosie Richardson added: “We have enjoyed a very good working relationship with Rank and it was a fantastic gesture by them to gift the sponsorship to Carers Trust this season.
“It was very evident that our supporters - as well as the club - appreciated that decision and it seemed very appropriate given the challenges unpaid carers and health workers in particular have faced through the pandemic.”
At last week’s meeting with new chairman Mike O’Leary and co-owner Brett Johnson, the Supporters Club were told a new sponsor would be announced shortly.

Very good gesture from previous sponsors. Hope the new sponsors are not Fat Chance Airlines. 😁.

So we'll have the word 'Rank' on our shirts.
How very, very appropriate.

Factual_blue took the words right out of my mouth. Must have seen how bad we've been and wanted a team appropriate to the name to sponsor

Factual_Blue & Brendenward35 do you not read the actual article before posting??
Rank (Parent company from Magical Vegas) is who we have had for the past 3.5 seasons and we do not know the new sponsor yet!!

this could be interesting ! '' Elsan Blue ''on the shirts would be fitting ,for current shower of sh#t.

Hopefully the new sponsors will be less Rank

Decent of them to gift the sponsorship for the season and nothing against them per say. However, glad we are getting shot of 'Magical Vegas' permanently. Gaudy logo and always felt rather cheap n tacky (he says......not yet knowing what sponsorship we yet have in store for us......!?!?)

Bring back the old Greene King!

If you have nothing positive to say don't say anything. Would that result in the closure of TWTD ?

I’d favour Senekot as our new sponsors. If ever our club needed a very good clear out now is the time 😻

Pioneer unless Hoescht want to bring back the Fisons brand

Brainbox, that made me chuckle. Nice one!!

I just hope that the shirt sponsor is not an embarrassing one or something Chinese, I won't buy a shirt sponsored by the CCP.

How about being sponsored by imodium??? As most of the time we are diarrhoea....💩💩💩💩💩

Got to be Viagra the only way is up!

Well it has been like a Carry On movie over the last 3 seasons.

Something Suffolk related, maybe Adnams.
Could do worse than tie it up with the beer offering at PR
|Edmundo added 13:33 - Apr 27|
Local would be great: Adnams, Willis, even AXA. Greene King isn't up there any more imo: beer is poor, and the owning company pretty shady (look out for a local near you being redeveloped for houses).

Wouldn't surprise me if it was Marcus Evans again as sponsors, not that I'd want it to be. He has a few quid floating around now, and might get a good deal.
Realistically it might be something to do with ventures connected to the three lions or pension group looking for ways to nudge some needed but cheap exposure in the UK markets.

Love these bods that down mark people but never post a comment themselves.

Rumour is it's a company called PRO Hydrate?
