Club partner Grange Mortgages have agreed to be the main match sponsor for Northampton Town's anticipated Sky Bet League 2 play off first leg fixture with Cheltenham Town.
Grange Mortgages, who are already a club partner through their support of the Grange Mortgages Family Area, will be taking advantage of an adjusted match sponsors package with the game set to be played behind closed doors.
The revised match sponsorship includes some brand new initiatives such as virtual matchday hospitality, with access to some exclusive behind the scenes online content on the day, virtual mascots, the chance to choose the man of the match, an advertising banner on seating in the TV arc and more.
"We have followed with admiration the way the club has supported the local community through the Covid 19 outbreak and as a big supporter of the community ourselves, we wanted to show our appreciation of the club's work as soon as we could.
"The partnership between the club and Grange Mortgages is long established and we are proud sponsors of the Grange Mortgages Family Area, so when the opportunity to sponsor the play off semi final game came up, albeit in a different way, we were pleased to jump at the opportunity."
Caroline Lucy, Commercial Director at Northampton Town added:
"We would like to thank Daniel and his staff for their support. There is a longstanding partnership between the Cobblers and Grange Mortgages and for this, our first play off game in seven years, we were hoping for a match sponsor who is a loyal supporter of the club, and Grange Mortgages fit the bill perfectly. We hope that Daniel and his virtual guests enjoy their match sponsorship package with a difference and we look forward to seeing them all as soon as the guidelines allow.
"We have been creative in coming up with a range of packages to suit all budgets so fans, sponsors, advertisers and partners can get involved in the play offs. Although they can't actually attend the games of course, the packages we have designed are unique and innovative with many other EFL clubs following our lead and there will be some more initiatives announced in the next few days. I would ask anyone interested in becoming a sponsor at the game to please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org."
