PR: Shipster Sponsors Macclesfield F.C.

Manchester, 28th September 2022, Immediate Release

Manchester-based shipping software company, Shipster, has recently announced they will be shorts sponsor of Macclesfield F.C.

The partnership comes from a long-standing appreciation of the club, its ethos and fascinating story about a club that relaunched in 2020 and has since rebuilt with a strong team, state-of-the-art 4G pitch, facilities for the local community and fantastic match results this season - much to the excitement of many locals and an excess of 3,000 supporters in attendance per match. Much of the club’s journey to rebuild is documented in the BBC documentary Robbie Savage: Making Macclesfield F.C.

As well as a regular presence at matches with friends, industry partners and clients, Shipster's sponsorship will be visible in multiple boards by the goal nets and logo on the official kit as shorts sponsor.

We are thrilled to be playing a part in Macclesfield Football Club and hope to keep this sponsorship going for many years, developing with the club. We at Shipster love what they’re doing and the ethos they’ve built there. Robbie and Rob [Club Directors] are special people doing special things at a family community club - we especially love the new fan zone and cannot wait to use it!  - Max Bartholomew, Senior Partnership Manager, Shipster.
