KINGSTON, N.Y. – Heading into its second season, Kingston Stockade FC continues to forge ties with the local community, not just through the sport of soccer itself, but with local business sponsorships as well.
The club is proud to announce that all sponsors from last year's inaugural season have returned again in 2017 -- Trailways NY, Dragon Search, and Radio Woodstock will continue to be featured on the club's home and away kits. In addition, the club has added some new brands that will be featured prominently at home matches at Dietz Stadium.
And working with these local businesses is a key objective for club founder, Dennis Crowley.
"From the kits to the sideline ads, sponsors are such an integral part of the FC experience overall, especially from a visual standpoint" said Crowley. "With that in mind, we are constantly looking for ways to add value to the local community and to improve our fan experience, and we couldn't be any prouder to have the club linked closely with such great local businesses."
The following is a closer look at Stockade FC's sponsors for the 2017 NPSL season, and what type of placement they will have. This year, the club has expanded its relationships with local businesses to provide fans with special offers at home games and at some participating merchant locations in Kingston.
