No5 Chambers, one of the UK’s leading barristers’ chambers, are proud to announce the renewal of their Diamond partnership with Birmingham City FC for the 2016/17 season.
The deal will once again see No5’s logo emblazoned on the back of both the Blues’ home and away kits, and following a successful season – which saw the Blues’ reaching 10th in the league – No5 Chambers are looking forward to continuing their support of both the club and Blues Commercial.
Tony McDaid, Practice Director at No5, said: “We are delighted to continue our Diamond relationship with English football through the renewal of our partnership deal with Birmingham City FC.
“The first season proved successful both on and off the pitch. It culminated in St Andrew’s being the fantastic setting for our inaugural Sports Governance and The Law seminar as well as hosting a joint charity 6-a-side event with EZE Group raising funds for the QE Hospital Birmingham. Meanwhile, many of our barristers took the opportunity to renew their passion for the beautiful game through regular attendance at matches entertaining clients from across our national client database.”
The deal puts No5 in good company, as just last month Blues’ signed four high profile deals, notably: with leading kit suppliers Adidas, Platinum and front of shirt sponsorship with 888Sport, Diamond and back of shirt deals with Snatch Pac and club captain Paul Robinson signed a new one year contract which will see him take on a player-coach role. BCFC will be aiming to build on last season’s solid 10th place finish under the watchful eye of manager Gary Rowett.
Head of Chambers Mark Anderson QC, comments: “We are proud to be associated with BCFC, they play a big part in the Birmingham community where No5 is head quartered.
“The new kit and sponsorship with huge global brands such as Adidas and 888Sport provide further evidence of the Club’s ambitions both nationally and internationally. We wish them luck for the coming season.”
