Crawley Town have announced that stadium sponsors Checkatrade will also become the club’s front of shirt main sponsor from next season on a three-year deal.

The company, which was formed in 1998, helps combat the UK’s rogue traders by interviewing, vetting and continuously monitoring local tradespeople.

It has grown to employ 215 staff with a turnover in excess of £12m, with more than 17,600 genuine trade members, growing by an average of 300 new members every month.

Chief Executive Michael Dunford said: “Checkatrade have been very supportive of the club since 2013, when they became stadium sponsors, and we are delighted that they have agreed to strengthen their ties with us by becoming our principal shirt sponsor.

“Their managing director Kevin Byrne and his guests are big supporters of the club and we’re delighted to help raise the profile of Checkatrade around the country for the next three years.”

Checkatrade managing director Kevin Byrne said: “It’s been our pleasure to partner with Crawley Town FC for the past two years as stadium sponsors, adding the shirt to this means our brand will now be taken to many other clubs and areas of the country.

“It’s a great partnership that works and we will be at the matches again next season cheering the team on.”

New home and away shirts will be unveiled shortly and will go on sale in July.
