Blackpool Football Club is delighted to have agreed a deal with Smiths Hire to become its official Match Day Social Media Sponsor.

As part of the deal, the Smiths Hire branding will appear on all match day social media posts, including updates and match reports. In addition, the firm will also roll out some exclusive offers for supporters who wish to use their products and services.

Smiths Hire has been providing equipment and tool hire to the construction industry for 50 years and to local tradesman and DIY customers all over the North West, with four local Hire It centres and a Head Office based in Blackpool, plus nine other locations.

Martin Booker, Blackpool FC’s Business Development Manager, said:

“We are delighted to welcome back such a prestigious regional firm with local roots to the club as official sponsor of our match day social media feed. The business is keen to grow its social and online presence and we have given them the perfect platform via the club’s media channels to achieve this. This is just the start of a new long-term relationship between us, as the firm reaches a milestone in business next year. We are looking forward to working with Smiths Hire on a new, long-term partnership.

David Turner, Smiths Hire Marketing Director, said:

“As a proud Blackpool company trading 50 years in a town we love, we have seen the positive change happen and the atmosphere lift and had to be a part of Blackpool FC’s bright future. The ‘Backing Blackpool’ call to action says it all and reflects the essence of the town and what we stand for as a company.”
