Bangkok Glass Public Company Limited, or BG, manufacturer of a wide range of packaging materials sold all over the world, Thailand’s largest producer of glass and other types of packaging, and one of the largest businesses in Asia, is to become the new Front of Shirt Sponsor of Oxford United Football Club in England for the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons.
The two-year agreement will see the Thai glass packaging specialists’ logo adorn the front of the men’s, women’s and academy teams’ shirts as well as replica shirts worn by fans for the upcoming campaigns.
Pavin Bhirombhakdi, CEO of Bangkok Glass Group of Companies, said: “This is a good opportunity for us to continue our work together with Oxford United to develop the potential of the club.”
“It is our privilege to be supporting and driving this club towards success through the training ground we have supported and now front of shirt sponsorship. We are very happy to be a part of this exciting journey.”
“In addition to the financial support through this sponsorship, we hope to also form a lasting relationship between Oxford United and our Thai-owned club, BG Pathum United Football Club.”
Oxford United Managing Director Niall McWilliams commented: “It’s fantastic for the club to have a global brand once again on the front of our shirts. It’s not just a case of putting the name on the shirt; BG has already committed to helping us develop a world-class training facility and their sponsorship of the men’s, women’s and academy sides underlines our ‘one club’ mentality.”
“We already have a really strong partnership with BG, and we look forward to this fruitful relationship continuing to grow over the coming months”.
This is not BG’ first introduction to the Yellow Army, having initially joined the U’s last season as the club’s first-ever Training Ground partner; a sponsorship they will continue to occupy in addition to their newly announced front of shirt sponsorship which will be unveiled in the pre-season home friendly with Coventry City on Saturday 16 July at 9PM Thailand time.
