Burnley sign new two-year shirt sponsorship deal


Burnley Football Club have announced a two-year shirt sponsorship deal with Chinese online casino and sports betting company Fun88.

The multi-million pound deal begins at the start of the 2010-11 season.

Burnley director of commercial affairs, Anthony Fairclough, told BBC Radio Lancashire: "We've been looking for a new sponsor for six to eight months.

"We talked to many national and international companies but this deal shows where we are as a football club."

And Fairclough is hoping the tie-up will be longer than the initial two-year deal.

"As long as we can deliver what we say we will then hopefully they'll be encouraged by that new relationship," he said.

"For the past six to eight months while we've been in the Premier League it's been staggering the number of companies who've been interested in our club.

"We've not just looked at national companies anymore. They've been multi-national, pan-European and even global."
