We are also working hard with Carlsberg to improve the branding in and around the club which can only be a win win situation for both parties. We looked to extending the deal as we have a great working relationship and with Carlsberg’s involvement in football increasing that can only be a good sign longer term. The fans will also see some new benefits from the sponsorship too. ”
