Bradford City AFC would like to place on record its sincere thanks to club partner Mitton Group, whose seven-year spell as the Bantams’ official back-of-shirt sponsor comes to an end later this month.
Friends of the club, and one of the largest partners in City’s history, the Bradford-based mechanical and building services contractor’s branding first appeared on the rear of the playing and replica jerseys in the 2016/17 season, and has done every year since.
Mitton will continue to be recognised as a club partner, with City’s next back-of-shirt sponsor to be announced in due course.
One of the club’s most significant and recognisable partnerships in recent years, the agreement saw the relationship between the two parties grow stronger each term, with involvement first beginning before the turn of the century before developing in the late 2000s.
City’s chief commercial officer, Davide Longo, said: “Since I arrived at the club in 2021, Steve Taylor and his colleagues at Mitton Group have been great to work with, and have proved great acquaintances as well as partners of the club.
“Mitton Group is one of our longest-standing, significant and proudest partners, who we will continue to hold in the highest regard and work alongside on multiple projects.
“As a club, working with like-minded Bradford firms is something we take great pride in, supported by the fact our partnership with Mitton will continue into the future.
“It is always important for us to thank new partners we are welcoming to the club, but also those who have stood with us for a number of years, offering unwavering support through the good times and the bad.
“On behalf of everyone associated with the club, I would like to thank our friends at Mitton Group for their loyal support and backing over the past seven years, as we look forward to what the future of this partnership has in store.”
Steven Taylor, Mitton Group’s managing director, said: “We are very proud to have sponsored the back of the shirts of our local football club for as long as we have.
“We take great pride in being partnered with Bradford City, and it is great that the club is keen to maintain strong relationships with fellow Bradford businesses.
“The exposure we have received from having the Mitton Group branding on the back of the shirts over the past seven years has been excellent, and we are looking forward to continuing our partnership with the club over the years to come.”
