Pioneer raises the roof with extended deal

We’re thrilled to be supporting local talent and extend our sponsorship with Stockport County, as well as unveiling our ambitious roof logo on the Cheadle End.

Our brand now features prominently across the front of the ‘Pioneer Group Cheadle End’, as well as the roof, where passengers flying into Manchester International Airport can appreciate our dynamic logo in all its glory.

County Commercial Manager Simon Dawson says: “This additional commitment from the Pioneer team is a great vote of confidence in Stockport County and takes us right through to 2021. It is a significant deal for the borough of Stockport, as we have cemented a long-term relationship with a national company based right here in the town centre. We’re also delighted to have Pioneer as Stockport County’s official Technology Partner.”

Our Director Chris Appleyard explains: “We’ve been delighted to work with Stockport County during 2017/18 and it makes sense to renew that three-year partnership and extend it to 2021. We know the club is on the rise, both on and off the pitch, and we’re proud to be part of that journey. We’ve also been amazed at the number of comments from people who’ve seen our branding as they fly into Manchester Airport.”

Stockport County Chairman Richard Park said: “Pioneer made a real statement of intent when they put their logo on the roof of the ‘Pioneer Group Cheadle End’ and we are proud to be partnering with them on an extended basis. The Pioneer deal is one of the biggest sponsorship agreements during my time on the Board of the football club and it once again demonstrates the confidence that people have in the club’s growth.”

Chris added: “The most important thing has been the reaction of the fans – the Cheadle End has an iconic place in their hearts and we wanted to respect that during our association. We’re really proud to have our branding on the ‘Pioneer Group Cheadle End’ and all the history associated with it, but the feedback from fans has been really positive so extending our deal was a no-brainer.”
