Chairman thanks Benenden Health

16th April 2019

York City chairman Jason McGill has expressed thanks to Benenden Health after confirming that the healthcare provider's seven-year sponsorship of the club will end this summer.

The York-based company will continue to maintain support, however, for the club's community work via the York City Football Club Foundation.

"We have been incredibly proud to have Benenden Health's logo on our club shirt since 2012," said Mr McGill. "The support they have given York City has been fantastic and vitally important during often difficult times.

"I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to Benenden Health for their backing over these last seven years," he added. "We share the same ethics and goals and the partnership has helped spread the benefits of football as part of a healthy lifestyle to the wider community.

"We welcome their continued involvement with the York City Football Club Foundation and will always be open to the possibility of working together again in the future."

Benenden Health Chief Commercial Officer Helen Smith said: “Our seven year sponsorship of York City has been a mutually beneficial relationship resulting in great initiatives such as the free mid-season shirt swap when we underwent a rebrand in 2013.

"We’d like to show our huge appreciation to the club for working so closely with us to achieve our objectives over the years.

“Thanks to our involvement with the club, we also began work with the York City Football Club Foundation, which recently saw an innovative outreach project helping children in schools learn about mental health. That work will very much continue, using the popularity of football to help improve health and wellbeing amongst young people in the city.

"We offer our very best wishes to all involved with the club as they strive for on-pitch success as well as their move to a new home.”
