The 2023 / 2024 season marks the 10-year anniversary of the Mick George Group as official shirt sponsor of Peterborough United.
The local company, one of the area’s leading suppliers to the construction industry, initially became the Posh's main shirt sponsor ahead of the 2014/15 campaign and has ever since, been a valued partner of the Club in varying capacities.
Since their first involvement, the Company has shown tremendous support and backing for the Club with a number of significant projects, events and fan engagement initiatives – all of which continued despite the challenging economic circumstances.
During the partnership to date, the club has experienced a number of memorable moments which will go down in Posh olklore. Most notably, standout occasions include the various FA Cup ties whereby Posh went toe-to-toe with some of English football’s goliaths, including Manchester City, Chelsea and Aston Villa respectfully.
Through continuous offerings of hospitality, discounts, giveaways, competitions and fun entertainment, not least Mick the Skip mascot and the Half-Time Skip Challenge, The Mick George Group have played a pivotal role in embracing the wider ‘fan activation programmes’ that the club participates in.
Commercial Manager at Peterborough United FC, Alex Harris said: “It has been a pleasure dealing with Jon and everyone at the Mick George Group over the past 10 years. The company have been pro-active and have assisted the club with a range of different projects during the partnership.
“The Mick George Group have been first class. When you engage with a business about involvement at a football club, part of the relationship is based on passion for the partnership, and they are hugely passionate about the football club and the community it supports.
Jon Stump, Joint CEO at the Mick George Group commented: “We have built a genuine and valued affinity with both the club and supporters since we became the front of shirt sponsor in 2014 and consider that we are seen as much a partner and fellow fan as opposed to just a corporate sponsor.”
“The Club is a critical hub for the community, representing the togetherness that exists in the City. That ethos is something that aligns with our business philosophies and we share in their vision of building a great football club that remains a key part of the community at all times."
