The new shirt sponsorship deal with NAPIT, which was announced earlier this week, brings an end to a long-term agreement with Global Brands.Global Brands have acted as sponsors for over 13 years, with the VK Vodka Kick and Kick Energy logos appearing on the shirts.
It was one of the longest shirt sponsorship deals in the Football League and the backing provided by the Chesterfield-based company has been very much appreciated.
Jim Brown, commercial manager for the Spireites, thanked Global Brands for their long-standing support. He said: "We have had an excellent relationship with the company and long may that continue as their name will still be seen at the Proact Stadium on advertising boards.
"On behalf of the club, I'd like to give a special thanks to Santi Perez, national accounts director for Global Brands, who is a loyal supporter of the club. Thanks also to his brother, Steve, who is the founder and owner of Global Brands."
