Chorley Group, which operates five Nissan dealerships in the north-west of England, has extended its patronage of Chorley Football Club through to the end of the 2023/24 campaign.
As long-time backers of Chorley FC, Chorley Group’s financial commitment to the club is considerable.
The company’s support has not only resulted in the club’s home ground being named Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium for the duration of the sponsorship, but also involves pitch-side advertising boards plus the provision of a sponsored vehicle for Director of Football Andy Preece.
Chorley Group also supports the youth team and provides company vehicles when needed.
Chorley Group, which was founded as a family business in 1989, has been a committed sponsor of Chorley FC since 2010. It also supports other events and charities, with strong ties to Chorley Youth Zone and Chorley Mencap.
Since opening its doors, Chorley Group has grown extensively, employing nearly 300 people in the north-west. Adam Turner, Managing Director, said: “We are proud to continue supporting the Chorley FC team and keep our local community ties strong.
“The club is an integral part of the town, and we are pleased that we can play our part in supporting the club in all it does for the local area. Hopefully, the boys will continue to push on up the league this season.”
Terry Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of Chorley FC, said: “This sponsorship once again shows how Chorley Group supports the local town and Chorley FC, and the continued funding of the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium for the 2023/24 season shows confidence in the club going forward.
“Our partnership with Chorley Group has become deeply important to everyone involved, and the Club are very thankful for the support they have received. We are excited to continue nurturing this relationship for the coming years.”
As well as Nissan, Chorley Group represents other manufacturers across its 15 franchised outlets. Its Nissan dealerships are in Chorley itself, Burnley, Blackpool, Preston and Wigan.
