Sykes Pumps extend commercial agreement with Ebbsfleet United

After working closely with Ebbsfleet United for a number of years, it is with great delight that Sykes Pumps announce the continuation of our partnership for the 2016-17 season.

We have watched the club’s development with great interest and hope the upcoming campaign will lead to the promotion they were so unlucky to miss out on in May.

In addition to the undoubted on-pitch progress, we at Sykes Pumps have been excited to see the first stages of redevelopment at Stonebridge Road. A new £5 million main stand is due to be unveiled during the course of the season and marks the first phase of a stadium renovation expected to cost in the region of £8million.

This improvement reflects the overall regeneration of the surrounding area and is something we at Sykes Pumps have been heavily involved with throughout the past decade – including the enabling works for the Bluewater shopping centre, various Thames corridor remediation projects, and further afield in north Kent.

These are therefore exciting times for all associated with the football club and there is great optimism that the team can go one better this time around!

Many of the Sykes Pumps staff were regular visitors to home matches last season and some even attended a handful of away games; such was their interest in following Daryl McMahon’s side.

As a people-orientated organisation, our members of staff have thoroughly enjoyed sharing company with representatives from Ebbsfleet United – a primary factor in why renewing our commercial deal was of such great importance.

Sykes Pumps Sales Manager, Steve Gray, explained: “We are pleased to be involved at an exciting time for Ebbsfleet United FC, and hope that we can all work together to achieve our goals as a collective.

“With the friendships we have made with the staff, players and fans, it was an easy decision to continue our sponsorship and be part of such a forward-thinking football club. Good luck for the coming season and up the Fleet!”
