A local politician has taken unprecedented steps to support all of her local non-Premier League teams in the 2011/2012 season.
Independent MEP Nikki Sinclaire has taken up sponsorship deals with 13 league and non-league football teams in her constituency, from the Championship to the Blue Square North, in a bid to back league football across the region.
As a huge football fan, Nikki has decided to show her support to the teams in her constituency and has arranged a number of sponsorship deals which will cement her as a politician who is fully behind local football.
One player from each of the teams will now be sponsored by Nikki Sinclaire for the season, and Nikki and her team are hoping that further links can be formed with the clubs throughout the season. Other planned sponsorship deals include match day sponsorships and match ball sponsorships.
Nikki will use some of the corporate benefits of the sponsorship packages to raise money for charity.
Since being elected as one of six MEP’s for the West Midlands region in 2009, Nikki Sinclaire has campaigned on a number of local issues including jobs, training, protection of greenbelt land and preservation of local communities.
Nikki Sinclaire is delighted to be working with the various local clubs and said “Football is one of the bedrocks of our community and engages people of all ages. I think this is a worthwhile endeavour and wish all the West Midlands clubs success for the forthcoming season”.
