New kits and sponsorship draw launched
24th June 2015
The Diamonds are going retro with next season's strips - and we're offering an amazing sponsorship opportunity.
Following some more elaborate kit designs in recent years, we've opted for a plain and simple approach to this year's kit.
Our new home shirt is of course white with a red diamond, and will be worn with white shorts and socks. We've returned to a more traditional black and red colour scheme for the away shirt, which will be worn with black shorts and socks.
The kits are supplied by Italian sportswear manufacturer Macron, and availability of replica kit will be announced as soon as confirmation of delivery dates is received.
After the success of the away shirt sponsorship draw scheme for the last two seasons, Airdrieonians FC is again offering local businesses, groups, or even individuals, the chance to enter the draw to have their name and/or logo prominently displayed on the team's second choice shirts in season 2015-16.
This year however, in conjunction with our new sponsors, M&H Logistics, we are taking it to a whole new level. There will now be three prizes on offer.
The first prize, as always, will be your name on the front of the away strip offering nationwide media coverage in match reports etc for the entire season.
For a second prize, we are now offering a truly magnificent opportunity to experience full matchday hospitality at Old Trafford. This will be for two people to choose ANY League game next season at Old Trafford (yes, Man City? Chelsea? Liverpool, you choose!) and will include an overnight stay in Manchester. The box itself is one of the finest at Old Trafford and will undoubtedly be a memorable occasion for the lucky winners.
And thirdly, we are putting up a two ball at Gleneagles, including lunch. This can be at any of their wonderful courses including the Ryder Cup venue, the PGA course.
In addition to these fantastic opportunities, every entrant will also receive a one-year subscription for two entries to the Club's Diamonds Lotto, worth £104 and giving 104 chances to win up to £20k. We are also including a 'money-can't-buy' invitation for two to the boardroom as guests of the Club at an Airdrieonians home game during the season (subject to availability).
In line with last season, we are limiting the number of prize draw tickets available to 50 only - so the odds are pretty good. And, of course, to improve your chances of winning still further, you are perfectly entitled to buy more than one ticket! The price for each ticket is £350 which we believe is very attractive, both for the guaranteed element, and of course for the chance to win any of these three magnificent prizes.
Deadline for acceptance of entries is Sunday 19th July at 5pm, with the grand draw scheduled to take place at the football stadium thereafter. We will be staging this as an event, with a drinks reception with all participants hopefully coming along to meet the players and staff, prior to what will be an exciting season.
The winner will be expected to provide details of the artwork or a description , so that the kits can be completed in good time for their first run out of the season.
We will also be hosting a specific event at a home game for participators later in the season where you will be our guests for a bite to eat and a glass or two as a further way of saying thank you.
It is a great way of supporting the Club and having a bit of fun so why not sign up, you never know your luck!
Those wishing to participate should email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, where payment can be arranged, as there are only a limited number of tickets available, so don’t delay.
