Everton lager deal pumps in more cash.
EVERTON Football Club has entered into a moneys pinning new sponsorship deal withBudweiser. Under the deal, the brand will become the ``official beer'' of the Blues.
It means Budweiser will have exclusive lager pouring rights across all concourse bars at Goodison Park.
And it includes perimeter advertising, in-stadium and concourse signs, and the right to use official Everton FC marks and logos on Budweiser products and point-of-sale items worldwide. Everton chief executive officer Michael Dunford said: ``In Budweiser we have found a partner whose ambitions match our own. This new partnership means Everton FC is joining forces with the world'sbest-selling beer, and we look forward to working with Budweiser in the years tocome.''
The deal will undoubtedly be a profitable one for the Goodison Club but the financial details have not been released.
Randall Blackford, Budweiser's UK marketing director, said: ``Budweiser's partnership with Everton Football Club is an outstanding fit, bringing together two brands with a commitment to quality and dedication to being the best. ``This sponsorship is a great way for Budweiser to reach beer drinkers, and we are proud to be associated with Everton Football Club.'' Everton is the latest addition to a string of football sponsorships by Budweiser.
It is already the ``official beer'' of The FA Premier League,Manchester United and Chelsea FC, and ``official partner'' of Manchester City.
Budweiser has also been ``official beer'' of the FIFA World Cup since 1986.
