Resolve announce sponsorship of Portsmouth FC, with the two firms coming together for a further three years after a successful first season.
Resolve and Portsmouth Football Club have officially announced a three-year sponsorship deal, making Resolve the official Added Time and Replay sponsor for the next three seasons.
Resolve is delighted to formally announce the official sponsorship of Portsmouth FC on a three-year contract, extending to the 2025/26 season. The deal, which is Resolve’s largest sponsorship deal to date, will begin from the start of the 2023/24 season. Directors Matt and Nick, along with Marketing Executive Toby, headed to Fratton Park to mark the sponsorship with a photo alongside Pompey’s CCO Mark Judges, as well as Partnerships Manager Lawrence Bisgrove, pictured below.
The two Portsmouth-based organisations have been affiliated since the start of the 2022/23 season, with Resolve agreeing to a single-season sponsorship. Resolve’s first season sponsoring the League One side saw the brand’s logo displayed on the LED board at Fratton Park throughout home matches, as well as official branding across social media, newsletters, and printed materials.
The new three-year deal see’s Resolve’s involvement with the local club increase dramatically. Specially designed graphics will be displayed on Fratton Park’s LED board for both instant replays, as well as during the added time announcements at half and full time.
Also featured in the ground is a 16ft Resolve-branded advertisement board, located in the corner where the North Stand and Milton end meet. This board was notably visible during Portsmouth’s 1-0 win over League One rivals Exeter on Sky Sports Football in August.
Resolve’s initial season of sponsorship also saw Pompey Academy Graduates joining the team for valuable work experience. The four budding professional footballers spent four days with Resolve, learning the ins and outs of how a business works, what the day-to-day of office life is like as well as the various opportunities available should they wish to pursue a career away from football. Resolve is already planning this season’s iteration of the work experience offering for the Blue’s Academy players and hopes that it will be an even better experience than the initial program.
The Resolve team are looking forward to seeing the progression of the partnership with Portsmouth, with many of the team being avid Pompey fans and season-ticket holders. There is also a hope that this partnership grows the awareness of the Resolve brand in the city, providing a solid platform for the expansion of the business in the next 6-12 months.
