Brunel University London become front of shirt sponsor


Wealdstone Football Club is delighted to announce that Brunel University have become our new front-of-shirt sponsor, and made history as the club’s biggest-ever commercial sponsor. The local partnership was made official during a formal contract signing on Brunel’s campus yesterday, with the university’s Vice-Chancellor signing on the dotted line.


Wealdstone Chairman, Rory Fitzgerald witnessed the signing, confirming Brunel as a premium sponsor of the Stones.


The deal will see Brunel University feature on the front of the club’s home and away kits for the next 3 seasons. Over the last 12 months, the relationship between the two organisations has gained momentum, with Brunel Business School and Brunel Hive – which connects high-impact academic research with high-growth businesses – supporting the club on a project to enhance and transform their organisation.


A substantial number of Brunel volunteers have helped out on match days, and Brunel student interns have worked with Wealdstone over the summer months.

The partnership is a positive move for the borough, and Professor Andrew Jones, Brunel’s Vice-Chancellor and President, is thrilled that the University has become the club’s newest sponsor.


“The local partnership shows our commitment to sharing our expertise, talent and resources with the borough to enhance the local area,” he said.


“Brunel will be central to the future of the club’s training plans by providing our Sports Park and training facilities to support Wealdstone’s first team and academy in nurturing the next generation of players.”

Wealdstone’s Chairman Rory Fitzgerald said: “We are pleased and excited to welcome Brunel University London as our new front-of-shirt partner as we continue our exciting journey in the National League. A partnership such as this will play a significant role in helping us to compete in the National League, fulfil our ambitions of turning full time and building our new stadium.


“There have been a number of areas where the club and University have already been collaborating, most noticeably at our growing academy based at the University’s Sports Park along with our Under-23s. The club has actively been engaged with Brunel Hive, the business growth and engagement platform at Brunel Business School, and many supporters will have seen Brunel’s student volunteers who have been supporting the clubs operations on matchday. With collaboration on the new stadium development also a possibility, we look forward to growing our relationship still further in the next three years and beyond.”


Stones fans can secure our new Brunel University sponsored home shirt immediately from our online store. These shirts also include a reference to our 125th anniversary which we celebrate this coming season. Our new away shirt will be launched next month.
