McDonald’s to sponsor Hemel Hempstead Town FC

Hemel Hempstead Business Ambassadors McDonald’s and Hemel Hempstead Town FC are delighted to announce a three-year sponsorship deal which will see the opening of the new McDonald’s Family Stand at the beginning of the new season which starts in August.

McDonald’s are sponsors of the World Cup in Russia, but are also keen supporters of grassroots football.

The Family Stand will have its own car park and dedicated Family Turnstile and the McDonald’s outlets in Bourne End, Apsley and Jarman Park will be staging a number of joint events with Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club.

Local McDonald’s franchisee, Alan Butchers, who is a keen supporter of grassroots football said: “Hemel Town football club are a fantastic example of local grassroots with a real community spirit and I’m delighted to be sponsoring them over the next three years. It’s important that we support teams in the area to help them create the best possible experience for young aspiring players and I hope that by sponsoring the ‘family stand’ this will encourage even more budding young footballers to get involved!”

Sir Mike Penning MP, and President of Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club, commented:

“I am delighted that McDonald’s are sponsoring the Family Stand at the ground. Obviously McDonald’s are a world famous brand, but with their outlets in Apsley, Bourne End and Jarman Park they have a strong presence and commitment to Hemel Hempstead.

This is a big step forward for the club.”

Chairman Dave Boggins added:

“McDonald’s coming on board is fantastic news for Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club, and I cannot thank them enough. We had decided to open the family stand for the 2018/19 season and for it to be the McDonald’s Family Stand is just brilliant.

We asked Sir Mike Penning MP and Kerry Underwood to join the board as President and Vice Chairman so as to get more sponsorship and local businesses involved in the club and it is working.”

Vice Chairman Kerry Underwood, who arranged the deal, said:

“This is an important statement both by McDonald’s and Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club. It is a positive and practical expression by McDonald’s of their commitment to Hemel Hempstead and the local franchisee is a great supporter of the town.

It is also a positive statement by Hemel Hempstead Town FC that it is creating a welcoming, family-friendly match day experience for everyone at Vauxhall Road. “
