Ground breaking kit deal for Saints

THE New Saints today unveiled a new kit sponsorship deal which is described as ground-breaking for the Welsh Premier and worth in excess of £500,000 in cash and technical equipment over the next three years.

Legea will be providing bespoke TNS FC branded green and white and blue shirts in addition to providing a wide range of TNS branded merchandise which will be for sale at the club, online and at other major UK retailers.
"This is one of the biggest-ever sponsorship deals secured by a Welsh Premier club and delivers vital sponsorship income," enthused the TNS general manager Ian Williams.
"It is also an affordable and effective platform for Legea to increase their presence in the UK marketplace as brand exposure stretches beyond the local exposure appeal to across the whole of Wales and Internationally with The New Saints being regular competitors in UEFA competitions," added Legea managing director, Luigi Acanfora.
"Welsh Premier teams have moved on considerably. We have monitored the success of the League and realised it is a fantastic way of promoting our brand."
Fortinet are also returning as the club's shirt sponsor after an intervaln of two seasons and TNS managing director Mike Harris says: "We are delighted with this new sponsorship deal with a high profile manufacturer such as Legea which hallmarks that they have recognised the driving force behind our club.
"The New Saints FC will continue to go from strength to strength following the signing of this deal. Whilst the club has invested heavily in its infrastructure to meet Uefa criteria, it also recognises that building a championship winning team is also important as the club once again looks forward to competing in the newly revised Europa League.
"By carefully striking the balance, we are determined that the next 10 years will be even more successful than the last 10 and we are also delighted to have Fortinet on board again."
