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 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!
