Bolton Wanderers are delighted to announce a two-year partner agreement with energy supplier Utilita Energy, who become the Club’s Official Shorts sponsor for the duration of the deal.
The partnership will see Ian Evatt’s side wear the logo of the UK-based company on the back of the first team shorts for the duration of the 2023/24 and 2024/25 campaigns.
A kitchen table start-up founded in 2003, Utilita are the first and only specialist Pay As You Go Smart Energy supplier in the United Kingdom.
With the business committed to embracing the latest technology to ensure they remain as Britain’s leading PAYG supplier, Utilita are the energy company of choice to over 800,000 homes across the UK.
The supplier also has a strong reputation across the footballing industry, with more than 20 partnerships in England and Scotland.
Utilita’s presence spans both the men’s and women’s game, from the very top level down to grassroots.
One of the company’s biggest community-focused movements is Football Rebooted, which recently celebrated its second anniversary.
This is a campaign that allows anyone with spare boots to donate them and those requiring boots, including individuals, families, clubs or schools, can collect them.
There are now more than 500 donation points across the UK, found at stadiums, club stores and retail outlets, and thousands of boots have already been donated and claimed.
Carl Sanderson, Head of Business Partnerships at Bolton Wanderers, said:
“We are thrilled to be welcoming Utilita to the Bolton family.
“They are a brand who like to engage with the community and we’re looking forward to working with them on various projects throughout the term.
“It’s a fantastic brand to be associated with and we’re delighted to have them on board.”
This partnership will also see the Utilita Food Hub erected in the fanzone for selected matchday collections across the season.
All donations will be distributed to local foodbanks in Bolton by Utilita’s official charity partner, Utilita Giving.
CEO and co-founder of Utilita, Bill Bullen, said:
“It truly is an honour to partner with a club steeped in so much history, and in such a short period we have been made to feel a part of the Wanderers family.
“The company and I are incredibly excited for the season ahead - not just for the football, but to work closely with the local community which we hope to become an integral part of.
“You have my word that both Utilita and our official charity partner, Utilita Giving, will do everything possible to support the most vulnerable families in Bolton.
“And who knows, maybe our Football Rebooted movement will enable the next Kevin Davies or Ivan Campo!
“Here’s to an excellent season with the Whites.”
