Teesside International Airport teams up with Darlington FC in sponsorship deal
The newly rebranded Teesside International Airport has partnered with Darlington Football club in a sponsorship deal.
The two-year deal will see the airport’s logo displayed on the shirt sleeve’s of the National League North squad’s home and away kits.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “Darlington FC has a rich and storied history and we are proud to be part of that story.
“We believe this partnership is a win-win for Teesside International Airport and Darlington FC as the football season kicks off.
“We are also delighted to back another local business – one of my top election pledges.”
Darlington FC’s commercial director, Craig Morley, added: “I am delighted to welcome Teesside International Airport to Darlington Football Club as a main sponsor.
“I would like to go on record and thank the airport’s fantastic staff, and Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen as without him ‘bringing our airport home’, none of this would have been possible.
“Darlington FC will proudly promote the airport on our shirt sleeves both home and away for a minimum of two seasons. Once again backing local businesses are investing in each other, rubber stamping the ethic of keeping business local.”
