Brown McFarlane has been appointed as an Official Club Partner by Stoke City FC for the 2011-12 Premier League football season. The striking yellow and blue Brown McFarlane advertisements on the touch line, behind the goals, and in the stands of Stoke City's Britannia Stadium will be a prominent feature during TV coverage throughout the coming season.
Brown McFarlane will also have an executive box at all of Stoke's home games during the season offering a complete hospitality package to its customers, suppliers, employees, and stakeholders.
Brown McFarlane is proud to be based in Stoke-on-Trent and delighted by its association with Stoke City. "The football club", says John Riddell, Managing Director of Brown McFarlane's U.K. business, "has progressively grown stronger over recent years and is recognised as being fully deserving of its place at football's top table. In less then ten years Brown McFarlane has changed from being a respected domestic supplier to an international force in steel plate supply. We see similarities in the way our respective profiles have been raised through integrity, honest hard work, and by maximising our talents."
