ProChance Football is delighted to announce the University of Derby as its new home and away shirt partner.
The award-winning University will sit on the front of the new home, away and third shirts for the duration of the upcoming campaign and until the summer of 2025.
The link-up also means that the University's logo will appear on players' training wear.
The new sponsorship follows the announcement of the University’s partnership with ProChance to deliver an innovative FdA Athlete Professional Development course. The programme, based at the University’s Kedleston Road site, welcomes its first students in September and will support aspiring footballers and officials who have been released or are searching for an opportunity to achieve an academic degree while developing their sporting talent.
Andy Hooton, Head of Sport and Exercise Science at the University, said “Securing the sponsorship of ProChance playing kit and training wear is a great way to evidence the importance that both organisations place on the student athlete. It is vitally importance that athletes maintain their professional development and wellbeing when engaging in elite performance and education. The strength of the relationship underpinning the new FdA Athlete Professional Development indicates that this is going to be game-changing within the industry.”
Liam Sutcliffe, Head of Football with ProChance Football, commented:
“We are delighted to have an innovative and unique FdA programme in collaboration with the University of Derby and the shirt sponsorship signals the strength of our relationship. I am proud of the University’s association with ProChance Football and we’re committed to seeing it flourish, keeping the student athlete at the core of our values. There is a shared sense of responsibility that we can provide opportunities within football and education that make the heart beat faster; starting with our innovative FdA programme from September 2023.”
