Malta Independent - - SPORT -

DIZZ Group have reached agree­ment with Sliema Wanderers FC to be their main spon­sor in a longterm deal.

Sliema W. pre­sented their kit with the DIZZ Group logo on their shirt and many of their star foot­ballers in a press con­fer­ence at their club house in Tower Road, Sliema.

The main speak­ers at the press con­fer­ence were DIZZ Group CEO Diane Izzo and Sliema W. Pres­i­dent Keith Perry.

Ms Izzo said it was a great hon­our for the DIZZ Group to be con­tribut­ing to the football club that has most achieved suc­cess in the coun­try. “This is only the be­gin­ning for us, but we are seek­ing to build a long-term re­la­tion­ship with this fa­mous football club in Malta.”

She went on to men­tion her hus­band’s fam­ily’s strong links with Sliema and the club, in­clud­ing Tony Ni­choll, his grand­fa­ther. “I have great re­spect for the club pres­i­dent and can look for­ward to a long road of col­lab­o­ra­tion through re­cip­ro­cal as­sis­tance. We are both do­ers and I be­lieve we can help the club in many dif­fer­ent things, apart from the mone­tary sup­port we have given.”

With the DIZZ Group be­ing the largest com­pany in re­tail lo­cally, she ex­pressed con­fi­dence that with the nec­es­sary as­sis­tance the club could be even more pro­fes­sional. She saw plenty of syn­er­gies and was work­ing with the club to con­tinue to build on its suc­cess and see how it could bring even more suc­cess.

Mr Perry ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the DIZZ Group’s sup­port and the faith shown in the Wanderers.

“Thanks to this agree­ment the club will be in a stronger po­si­tion to achieve fur­ther hon­ours, with the main tar­gets this year be­ing to achieve en­try into the Euro­pean com­pe­ti­tions next sea­son and to win the FA Tro­phy since the club won the first edi­tion in the Thir­ties and won it again last sea­son.”
