Bucks New Uni come on board

16 October 2014

Wycombe Wanderers are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Buckinghamshire New University which will see the University sponsor a stand at Adams Park.

The two parties have previously enjoyed a successful working relationship and will be affiliated once again through a number of initiatives which will deliver mutual educational and sporting benefits, including opportunities for Bucks New University students to gain work experience at the Club.

The University has agreed to sponsor the home terrace behind one goal at the stadium, and will be the match sponsor for the Wanderers’ Sky Bet League 2 fixture against Burton Albion on Monday 17 November, which will be televised live on Sky Sports from Adams Park.

Club Chairman Andrew Howard said: “Wycombe Wanderers are making a real effort to engage with local businesses and it’s a huge step in the right direction to have an organisation with the calibre of Bucks New University on board. We’ve laid down the groundwork for some fantastic initiatives in partnership with the University and are excited to develop these in the coming months.”

Prof Ruth Farwell, Vice Chancellor of the University, said: “We are delighted to be working with our local team once again and believe that the association will reinforce our reputation as a practice-based and industry-related University through opportunities for students to experience the Football Club’s working environment and to translate our research in sports performance into practice.

“Both the Club and the University are forward-thinking and share a pride in our community, which is why this new partnership is perfectly suited to both parties. We look forward to working together closely.”
