May is traditionally the month for cup finals, the FA Cup and Champions League to name but two. So it was great news to hear that the football team we sponsor have reached the Chester District Junior Football League Cup final.

Sports team sponsorship is one of the oldest forms of marketing, but you don’t have to spend millions to get involved. Shirt sponsorship of a local or junior football team is a great way to get your business noticed. We’re currently looking at more opportunities to sponsor sports teams and individuals, recently we’ve helped a junior jockey realised his ambition to ride in the Shetland Pony Grand National!

Newton AFC will play the final at Chester F.C. on Sunday 18th May against Ellesmere Port JFC. Eddison-Media have sponsored the Newton AFC kit via our football website RetroFootieShirts.co.uk for the past two seasons. The team have made real progress in that time by achieving their highest league finish this year, coupled with a great run in the Cheshire cup competition.

The match will be a tough test for Newton who have beaten Ellesmere Port only once before. However, this year looks like a good one for the underdogs, Athletico Madrid have just won the La Liga title and reached the Final of the Champions League. Lets hope that Newton can pull off a similar shock this weekend at the Swansway Stadium.

To celebrate the teams achievement in reaching the final we’ve splashed out on personalised polo shirts for each player.

¡Vamos Newton!

In 1967 Celtic became the first British team to lift the European Cup, the heroics of the Celtic players that night earned them the nickname ‘Lisbon Lions’. Remarkably all members of the team were born within 30 miles of Glasgow.

This remains Celtics best ever performance in the European cup, as such the 1967 team has a gained near mythical status among the clubs fans. Our site www.RetroFootieShirts.co.uk features two great replica retro shirts just like the ones worn that night by Wallace, McBride, Lennox and Chalmers.

We have recently started a google PPC campaign based on Celtics famous 1967 European cup success. If the campaign is successful we will roll out specific PPC ads for other teams big game shirts.
