Buxton F.C. has made history by reaching the second round of the FA cup, and for the first time will be sponsored by Buxton Water.
The first team, who play in the Northern Premier League, will face League One side Morecambe on Saturday (4th December) and the players will be proudly wearing shirts emblazoned with the Buxton Water logo.
The match, played at home at The Silverlands Stadium, will be broadcast live on the BBC at 12:45.
Grant McKenzie, Managing Director for Nestlé Water UK said: “We are incredibly excited that Buxton F.C. has reached this stage in the FA Cup and thrilled to be the shirt sponsor on the day. It will be a huge moment to see the team with the Buxton Water logo on their shirt for such an important moment in their history. We wish them all the luck and will definitely be cheering on The Bucks on Saturday.”
Dave Hopkins, Buxton F.C. Chairman said: “On such a momentous occasion, we were delighted when Buxton Water agreed to support the Club with the additional sponsorship for the day. With 2.5million viewers expected on BBC One, on top of the packed house inside the stadium, Buxton Football Club will be so proud to carry the prestigious Buxton Water brand logo on our shirts. As a community-based Club we are so grateful for the support that Buxton Water continues to give, we really hope we will do them proud on the day.”
The British natural mineral water company has been a proud partner to the Buxton F.C. Academy for the past three years, committed to championing young talent and investing in the wider local community.
