Utility Alliance teams up with Burnley FC as Principal Community Partner

3 August, 2017

Utility Alliance has teamed up with Burnley FC in the Community to become the charity’s first official principal partner.

In the first deal of its kind for Burnley FC’s official charity, the pioneering partnership will see Utility Alliance enter into a two-year deal with Burnley FC in the Community to become its principal partner.

Utility Alliance will also become Community’s official energy supplier, powering the charity’s facilities portfolio including the Leisure Box operation at Brierfield Mill and Whitehough Outdoor Education Centre in Barley.

Already a key energy company in the North East, Utility Alliance is looking to expand its presence in the North West whilst supporting the innovative and ever-growing work of Burnley FC in the Community.

Ian Willis, PR & Marketing Manager for Utility Alliance, said: “We are delighted to be linking up with Burnley FC in the Community.

“We have worked hard to complete this deal, and we have been very impressed by the plans that Neil Hart, Ryan Bradley and the rest of the team have in taking what is already a fantastic scheme further forward.

“Utility Alliance is a relatively new company, but we have made great strides in raising our brand awareness since the turn of the year and to have the opportunity to link up with a Premier League club is something we are very proud of.

“We are genuinely excited to be working with the club’s official charity, and we wish Sean Dyche and his team every success for the new season.”

Neil Hart, Chief Executive Officer at Burnley FC in the Community said: “We are absolutely delighted to have Utility Alliance on board as our principal partner.

“This key investment from a fantastic organisation will be crucial to the development of our work – work that is already touching the lives of over 20,000 people locally.

“The fact they are so enthusiastic to give something back demonstrates the kind of company Utility Alliance are. We are really looking forward to working closely with them over the next two years.”
