Six-figure deal for Inverness club

Caley Thistle sign Subway shirt deal

ICT and SubwayInverness Caledonian Thistle FC has agreed a one-year extension to the club’s shirt sponsorship deal with sandwich chain Subway.

Subway replaced The Orion Group as the Scottish Premiership side’s main sponsor last year. Terms of the new deal were not released but Subway said it was a six-figure sum.

Caley Thistle chairman Kenny Cameron said: “We are all delighted that Liam Dalgarno, Nin Atwal, Haj Atwal and the Subway team have decided to extend their main club sponsorship for another season.

“Subway’s first year as our club sponsor has turned out to be the most memorable in our short 21 year history and we look forward to working with them again in season 2015 / 16. For the club to be continuing its association with the global Subway brand is a winning combination.”

The club has recently sealed its qualification for European football next season after finishing in third place in the Premiership.

Mr Dalgarno, a former pupil of Hilton Primary School and Inverness Royal Academy, owns the three Subway franchises in Inverness plus one each in Nairn and Elgin.

Liam is also the Development Agent for Subway stores in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk, finding, recruiting and supporting franchisees and locations in that area.

He said: “I am delighted to work with the club for another year. This agreement has benefitted us commercially by helping to raise brand awareness as well as allowing us to remind football fans of our efforts as a brand to get everyone living more active lifestyles.

“From a personal perspective, the sponsorship has allowed me to realise a long held dream of sponsoring my home team, the fact it has coincided with such a successful season for the team is a bonus!

“I firmly believe, having been lucky enough to meet both the players and the managers, that their closeness as a team and the excellent team spirit they have fostered has been pivotal to the club’s success this season. Every single person is proud to play for the club and gives it their all on and off the pitch week in week out.”
