Crystal Palace Football Club have announced an extension to their current partnership with official energy partner Utilita Energy.
Utilita Energy will become the “front of shirt” partner for the Crystal Palace FC academy and the club’s inaugural junior Eagles partner, with the Utilita Energy logo appearing on the front of all CPFC academy team shirts, as well as all junior shirts sold within the official club store.
Utilita Energy will increase their engagement with the local community and provide a range of exciting initiatives for junior Eagles to enjoy across the season, including competitions to attend training days and meet members of the first team squad.
Utilita Energy and Crystal Palace FC are committed to inspiring the younger generation to find a better path in life, for a better life.
Barry Webber, commercial director, Crystal Palace Football Club, said: “We are delighted that we have been able to enhance our existing partnership with Utilita and introduce further opportunities for them to work with our academy, our junior members and our Palace for Life Foundation as they continue to strive to improve the way of life for the younger generations of south London.”
Jem Maidment, director of marketing & communications, Utilita Energy, said: “We pride ourselves on supporting Britain’s hard-pressed families and engaging with local communities across the UK.
“Through this addition to our partnership with Palace, we will be able to integrate with the local community in South London, strengthen our ties with the Palace for Life Foundation and power future Palace stars within the renowned CPFC academy.
“The work that goes on within the club and the foundation is extraordinary and makes a huge difference to many lives – it is what Palace and Utilita are all about. Just in the last year, we have supported events such as the Palace Marathon March and we are thrilled to be growing our partnership next season.”
