First published in 2007, this 168 page reference work has become a football industry stalwart with over 2,000 football suppliers and services listed in nearly 200 separate categories.
The main sponsor is again leading team wear provider - Sondico Professional. The directory is distributed to over 5,000 football clubs from Arsenal to York City, from the Premier League to grass roots.
FTD's Director John Booth said:
'We are delighted that Sondico Professional have again sponsored the annual, and we have a superb line-up of secondary sponsors like Club Wembley, JD Sports, The Co-Operative Bank, Mars, Ticketmaster, Centerplate, Bet Bright and Medoc to name a few.
'Whilst we have a superb on-line presence, the book is every one's favourite desk top reference tool, and we know talking to clubs and associations how useful people working in the industry find it.'
Spencer Guinchard, MD Sondico Professional said:
'We are proud to sponsor the latest edition of this established football trade guide. It is a great help to clubs and suppliers alike. The fact that it is used both by top flight clubs and the grass roots game is a major plus.''
Ken Wright, Chairman newly promoted Conference club, Chorley FC, said:
'Football Trade Directory are to be congratulated on producing another edition of their guide. It has helped me and the club tremendously over the years.'
