Rangers Football Club has signed a three year partnership with The Energy Check to become the club’s new back of shirt partner from the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership season.

As part of the deal, the energy company’s logo will appear on the back of all first team kits from next season, moreover, the firm will have a ‘significant visual presence in Ibrox Stadium’ which includes being prevalent on Rangers’ touchline and mid-tier LED boards and interview backdrops.

Commercial and Marketing Director, James Bisgrove, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome The Energy Check as our new back of shirt partner. This lucrative three-year partnership is a significant step in further expanding our commercial partnership family at Rangers.

“We look forward to introducing The Energy Check to our supporters and corporate clients in the coming seasons and working closely with them to develop an extensive and exciting activation plan.

“Further announcements with continued additions to the growing commercial partner family at Rangers will follow in the coming weeks as we look forward to the 2020/21 football season.”

In addition to commercial benefits, The Energy Check will also work with Rangers to develop  ‘clean energy’ and environmentally friendly strategies, this includes offering consultancy services and also introducing ‘several Energy saving projects at both Ibrox Stadium and The Rangers Training Centre’.

Last year, The Energy Check saved its partners, which includes EFL Championship sides Swansea, Barnsley, and Blackburn Rovers, £1.6m on utility costs by using in-house expertise in utility brokerage, consultancy and technologies.

Head of Corporate partnerships, Shaun Martin, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Rangers for the next three years. It’s a fantastic time to be a part of the club, and it’s a partnership that everyone at The Energy Check is very excited about. We’ve already identified some operational successes, and we’re hopeful these can be replicated on the pitch come next season.’’
