Abacus Lighting has reinforced its commitment to support up and coming football talent by signing a two season partnership agreement with the Evo-Stik League.
Abacus, a world leader in sports lighting, has become the League’s official lighting partner, giving its clubs the benefit of over 50 years of knowledge and experience.
Alan Allcock, League Operations Manager at the Evo-Stik League, said: “We are delighted to have Abacus on board and I’m sure our clubs will benefit greatly. We are regulated by the Football Association and, to comply with their requirements on floodlighting levels, our clubs have to keep their floodlights in tip top condition to ensure minimum levels are maintained. Abacus’s commitment means that every club in the league will benefit from a free, no obligation lighting review – great news for the clubs!”
If a club decides to upgrade its floodlighting with Abacus, it will also benefit from the company’s unrivalled knowledge in issues such as gaining planning consents, and choosing the most appropriate lighting design for the club’s needs.
Abacus’s UK Sales Director, Paul Wilson, who is a major football fan himself, said: “Through this sponsorship we will keep close, personal links with the clubs. There is a great atmosphere between the teams and we are proud to be part of Great British football. Six of the League’s clubs have arranged their free lighting review with us and we hope more will follow soon.”
Abacus already has a strong track record in supporting the football community at different levels. The company sponsored the Central Midlands Football League for four years and, in that time, helped put the League on a much sounder financial footing – extremely beneficial to clubs struggling to survive at this level.
