Sponsorship deal for stadium as Wales’ young guns are heading to town
BANGOR City has announced Nantporth Stadium will be renamed the VSM Bangor City Football Club Stadium in a new sponsorship deal.
Vaughan Sports Management, the club’s principal shirt sponsor for the past two seasons, will become the main title backer of the stadium and will also be revealing details of sponsorship of Bangor City FC’s successful Academy set-up shortly.
Last night’s JD Welsh Premier League fixture against Aberystwyth Town was due to be the first match played under the stadium’s new guise.
With covered seating for more than 1,180 spectators, City’s home since 2012 has already established itself as a prime location for representative matches, including FAW Welsh Cup Finals and International games. The VSM Bangor City Football Club Stadium will host two prestigious Wales UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifying matches this month with Bosnia-Herzegovina this Friday (November 10) and Romania (Tuesday, November 14) the visitors (both 6pm kick-offs).
Bangor-born Nathan Broadhead (Everton) is among Robert Page’s 18-man squad selected for the international double-header.
Page welcomes back Chris Mepham after the defender missed the win over Liechtenstein through suspension, while Liverpool’s Harry Wilson, from Corwen, returns to the squad. Former Rhyl stopper Owen Evans (Wigan Athletic) is one of the two keepers chosen.
