St Albans City FC have announced their new principal shirt sponsor for the forthcoming season – rock band Enter Shikari.
Unveiling the new hummel home strip for the 2020/2021 campaign, chairman and co-owner Laurence Levy said he was thrilled at the link up with the band who were formed in the city.
He commented: “We knew that Enter Shikari share our passion for improving the health and lifestyles of young people so we are delighted to announce our partnership with this global force in modern rock music. Music and football have a long history of common personalities and with all four members of the band born and bred in St Albans and educated in local schools, we have a great platform for working together to improve outcomes for young people in the district.”
Chris Batten, Enter Shikari bass-player and vocalist shared Mr Levy’s enthusiasm.
He said: “Growing up I was passionate about two things… football and music. The reality is that sport and music go hand in hand when it comes to providing a positive outlet for people, no matter their background. St Albans City FC lead the way with its community outreach programs and Enter Shikari couldn’t be more proud to embark on a partnership with the club.
“We 100 per cent support the work St Albans City FC already do locally and we look forward to working together to find new ways we can give back to the city and the communities that raised us.”
The hummel strip features the club’s traditional yellow and blue colour scheme.
The kit will make its debut tomorrow against Hashtag United and is available now to pre-order: https://www.musicglue.com/st-albans-city-fc/. Shirts will be shipped by Friday September 11 2020.
