Chorley Football Club have signed an exclusive sponsorship deal which will see the main stand at Victory Park renamed.

Bosses at the club have penned a three-year deal with The Chorley and District Building Society.

The deal, which is a large five-figure sum, will see the main stand renamed.

Several advertising boards have also been put up around the ground.

The two businesses have worked closely together over the past 12 months, with the setting up of the Chorley Football Club Affinity savings account.

Individuals cannot only earn interest for themselves, but also earn interest for the Magpies.

Chorley FC director Jeremy Lee said: “This is just another great example of a local business working closely with the football club.

“When setting up an Chorley FC Affinity account, both the club and saver are winners.

“The new advertising boards have been erected at the ground and we look forward to welcoming the staff of The Chorley and District Building Society to our first home game of the season against Nuneaton on August 8.”

The Magpies notched up their first win of pre-season on Saturday against neighbours Bamber Bridge.

Chorley were 2-0 winners at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium, with Chris Almond and Andrew Teague bagging the goals.

The Magpies face National League side Barrow at Victory Park tomorrow night (kick-off 7-45 p.m.) in their fourth pre-season game, as they step up their preparations.
